There sure is and i'm loving it very much. Took me a while but I got there which is what I was fighting for. I thought it would never end but it has and it feels way better than gambling.

No gambling today and i didn't even think about doing it at all. Got my car serviced today which is great because I had the money saved up from not gambling. I've also got some new goals to look forward to such as new console for myself and new games to play. awesome. I know and believe that I can do it.

Keep up the fight because I have shown that life does come back when gambling goes away.

Hope your day was great but if not never mind because tommorrow is a new day,

Be positive and remember that i'm here for anyone if they need some support.

Best wishes

Keeton

Well here i am. finally after so long i have been given the real me back. I am just enjoying life at the moment. I guess the real me was still there I was just dormant inside waiting to come back out. I realised that I have a deep forgiveness in myself for my mistakes and that It doesn't mean i'm a bad person. I just got addicted to gambling. I do not like gambling anymore and I don't think I ever will. It is terrible that gambling can do that to people and destroy lives. I am just being myself and doing what feels natural to me. I have lost interest in gambling. Instead i have descovered who I am and that life is worth living because there is so much piossiblity in the world. Gambling put me into maximum security prison and I have been finally released from its hold on me. No longer will I try to get money from gambling. I will do it by any means neccessary but I know that gambling will never be the answer. While they can put big flashly screen on those machines. I will do what has to be done to not go back to them. I wasn't gambling before I was legal so now I am positive I will not go back. Gambling should be terminated because there are no positive outcomes from doing it.

NOw that that part of my life is over I am a better person I have ever been because I had a life experience that made me stronger.

Tomorrow is a new day but I won't be gambling it.

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Yes i am at peace at last with myself and with life in general. I am also finding that every aspect of my life has improved because i'm not focused on gambling. I thought it would never end but finally I can enjoy life. Now I don't take life for granted and live each day like tomorrow doesn't come. Its good to hear your doing ok and your right it is a good feeling to not dread over gambling. I don't want to feel that anymore.
