    Rock bottom apparantly has 2 trap doors and a tunnel thereafter!

    Wish I could say day one is starting now for me, but I just gambled! 2k that was for mine and my daughters little holiday!
    I just need to remove money from my life for good, and learn to enjoy life again not even thinking about money!
    Day 1 starts tomorrow! Time to stop failing my child and myself!

    Just need to remove any attachment around money that I have! And try live life just using money for essentials. Sucks when you have no value for money! I'm a very low income earner 32k ish but yet I pump the machines with 50's like I have endless money.
    I've had a few wins lately and had that money aside, but just blown it all.

    Unfortunately winning just reinforces the gambling addiction and most people will sink their winnings back in thinking that they can win more.

    In the end you really just cannot win.

    Hey, welcome back. Glad that you are still trying to quit. Worried about you when you dropped off the radar. I have a fall off the wagon too but feeling good about getting back up again. Hope you stay in touch and keep posting :);

    @Michael Sucks bad when you had money aside for something special! Hope you managed to find a way. 🙂

    @dragon Yep, I should know by now that, even when you win you loose! Even if I have a big win and manage to hang on to it, it always gets the better of me and I blow it.

    @Cazza Sorry to hear you had a slip. Gosh I've been slipping up ever week or 2 since I was on here last. Definitely going to make 2019 a year of change, I've had enough, my life is in tatters because of the bloody pokies! Glad you are still around though also, all the best for 2019.
    13 days for me, only started counting 1st Jan, but last bet was a few days prior, but determined to make 2019 gamble free.

    Thanks BrittV,

    Thanks!!! 😚😚
    Yep, going good so far. Last 3 years I've lost so much of life, I need to kick this for good.
    20 years is enough!

    My soul has taken enough of a beating, I need to make myself and daughter proud!
    It's funny I seem to be pretty good at giving others advice, but dont take it myself 😂😂

    Day 17 no Pokies or cigarettes!!!
    Feeling good!

    Just with everything in my life I'm all or nothing! I feel sick thinking about the fact I would literally light 1 smoke up after the next when playing pokies. Would smoke a pack of cigs i in 5 hours!
    Would get so depressed after thinking fark! What the fark am I doing!
