    Hi Joy,

    You mentioned that time tends to dull your good intentions. That is pretty common. I think that for many gamblers part of the reason for that is that gambling is how they reward themselves, when they stop they don't have any way to reward themselves. People need rewards. If they don't have a new reward they will eventually go back to the old reward.

    So how can you reward yourself for going a month without gambling?

    Had the same problem yesterday. Had to keep putting in my email & password. It was really strange.
