    Day One

    Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:52 am

    So Today will be day one trying to stay gamble free, i get paid later today (Wednesday) and im making sure 90% of it all goes on too bills and 10% left over just for food and nothing else, not gambling at all...

    This time i have a friend im confiding a lot into and is helping me a long the way... im not really sure how to go about getting a sense of what money is.. like $800 too me is nothing i would gamble that in a night if i ever had it, and to some people that a huge amount of money...it has no value to me, im one of those people that would hate to spend $50 on a t-shirt but have 0 problem putting $500 into a poker machine for 2 hours of fun and have nothing left for the week and i dont want to be that person anymore

    So im starting day one today and hoping i can make :)
