    Day 87

    Mon Apr 23, 2018 7:46 pm

    Update: I still haven't played the pokies but I want to and I think of it a lot. The only thing I am doing to stop myself is spending my whole pay on the bills and food as soon as my pay hits my bank account. This won't work forever but it's working for now.

    Hi Donna....WOW!!!! I have read all your posts.....You have come so far!!....Many congratulations on 87 days gamble free. Keep doing it the way it works for you!! I am pretty much doing the same, paying bills straight away.....I do keep some money for me and today I had a massage as a small reward!!

    I am so very happy for you? It is a struggle which becomes easier over time. What other interests do you have to help during the tough days??

    Keep going Donna and be proud of yourself!!

    Sincerely Jo
