    Hi @spentitallagain, so great you are doing really well and marked 20 days!
    I hear you are determined not to bet on horse racing, but just to enjoy watching it.
    Keep going and posting your progress here.

    Thank you @@gzy3

    Day 22 down, keeping strong, you're right I love watching the races but I feel strong not to place a bet!

    I will not cave, but I do think I will spend Melbourne Cup day at the races in Brisbane... But I will be more focused on terrible pick ups lines rather than betting.. If I can get through this day it will be a MASSIVE accomplishment!

    Day 25 today...

    Feel really ashamed of myself today, I went out with my mates last night and was too intoxicated and got thrown out...

    I still haven't gambled, but I'm feeling the financial pinch again (which is a trigger) and yesterday with the Everest and Caulfield Cup on, I was very tempted...

    I get paid monthly and it has been really hard having built up so many debts

    I just need to stop drinking for a while and keep channeling my stupid addictive personality into positives... Work, Gym and Eating healthy
