I have the same problem. I don't even think of playing pokies Monday to Thursday, but have a big problem with Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. These are my problem times. I blew $900 last Friday night and really wild with myself. I am now back at Day 5. I have recently signed up on this website to get the daily SMS messages. I have found these have helped as it reminds you to stay on your game. This may be a good thing for you to join up to? All the best with your challenge. We are in this together.

Days 1 and 2 went okay.
It's day 5 ,6 and 7 I need to through.

I can't remember the last time a weekend didn't involve a trip to the pokies. And these aren't short trips, they are usually 6+ hours.

I have made dinner plans for either Friday or Saturday night, just need to confirm
The night and then movie afternoon with my daughter on Sunday.

I usually tell people to think one day at a time ... but if you think you will be ok day 1-4 then you can prepare for day 5 by reading posts and learning to understand how to resist temptalions and overcome urges. There are tips on how to do this on the homepage's self-help link.

It is said that we need to replace time spent gambling with another activity. Perhaps you could visit friends or family ?

Day 0

Postby Tja12345 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 9:53 pm

I gambled today, so tomorrow will be dat one.

I usually go all week without gambling, but then make up for it on a Friday/Saturday and Sunday.


I know I'll be okay for days 1-4, but day 5 (Friday) will be hard.

Here's to the next 100 days.
