Hi, thanks mona and user, yes we need to keep ourselves busy. Can't advise others yet as I'm still early days again and it's a struggle everyday but post replies are so nice to read. Day 5 GF. I read the site everyday. If I can get through next week GF I will be one happy pea pod.

I did that too! And I still open the cupboards just to look at how tidy it is .. Funny little things we are!

Day 2 AGAIN. Went to my doctor yesterday and told him everything. Talked about medication but I'm not prepared to take it yet so I will sit on the decision for a while. Been watching YouTube videos on the study of gambling and it all makes sense. We are so vunerable to the machines. They are set up for people like us. They change our brain waves they are set up for failure and heartache. I know we all want to switch the switch that turns our gambling brain into a non gambling brain it just seems impossible at times because of the good old relapse. Wish me strength and all the best.

Hi everyone out there. I gambled on Monday again. I was desperate as I gambled. I lost and lost and lost. I was frantic and sad. Today I have organised counselling again and spoken to the helpline. Wish me strength please I need it.

Hang in there pea pod. I had a bust this week and it is tough but nothing we can do to change it. Try and think of what triggered you, what can ýou learn and what strategies can you put in place.

Defeat only comes when we stop trying...

Take care of yourself.
