    Wow jc, you actually sound your age when you write a post now.
    Not meaning to be rude, but how you write is very expressive and at the start of your journey you sounded old,beaten and surrounded in blackness.
    Now you sound younger and much happier, and starting to see life in a different way again.
    Keep going jc 😊

    Thanks for the support guys. Really in a lot better place right now. Much more happier. Lost about 10kgs too. I barely even think about betting now. Sometimes I'll get hit with the urge here and there but nothing too serious. I try to post as much as I can but with the urges dying, I find myself not coming on here as much. I don't want to get complacent...

    Day 82 today

    Day 86! Since we're all sharing quotes, heres a litte gem from one of my favourite authors Dostoevsky:

    “Break what must be broken, once for all, that's all, and take the suffering on oneself”

    Have a blessed week folks.
