    Hi Doug

    Well done on your 20days. They are hardest getting easier all the time Sometimes not....

    Why do u keep denying yourself some treat?

    Chocolate wld help give u a boost maybe its a girl thing but I like to spoil myself with that at the very least just at the moment.

    We all need a little indulgence once and en a while and if you keep denying yourself well what fun is there?

    Have a good one - LOL Linda

    Hi Linda

    i will probably get chocolate today.

    I don't really deny myself to much in life.

    I just don't pursue alot of things now that i am getting older.

    I also don't want to put any weight back on lol

    I probably have the winter blues.

    Keep up the good job Linda

    been along time since.I have posted in my own diary of recovery.
    I am getting close to the 2 year mark of not gambling.
    I still need to be reminded how easy and painful it would be to return to gambling.

    Hi Doug
    2 years without gambling, an amazing feat! How are you going?
    I have noticed over the past few months that you are a great support to new members of the forum, and those just starting this challenge, so thank you.
    Hope you have a good day,
    Neve

    Doug don't even mention it, I don't like the cold! It wasn't much of a Summer here in Melbourne either... You're right though in that it's probably still nice enough to get out, have BBQs, it's still light-ish in the evenings. I will do the same and make the most of it!
