Hi @kez

Ka-Ching is sch a great doco to watch, I'm glad you got something from it! It really helps you to understand and put things into perspective.
Have you got a list of things you can do to distract yourself when those urges come?
It will get easier with time- the more times you don't give in to those urges, the strong you will become and the less the urges will appear.

Day 3 - craving hard

Sun Jan 06, 2019 5:48 am

Its day 3 and the cravings are hitting me. Spend yesterday eating packets of Tim Tams. Searched hard and found the doco Ka-Ching Pokie Nation what an eye opener, shared it with my brother who is also a problem gambler. Helped us both getting some true awareness I think. Watching videos online of problem gambling which is also helping :-)
