    Sooo today is Day 218

    If all goes according to plan - this will be the first gambling free Christmas in a long time. Even last year I went 200 days but still lapsed for months and had a miserable Christmas and new year.

    Last year I had an ‘itch’ that I thought that if I scratched it, it would go away. Yet it was the opposite - the itch spread.

    The annoying thing is I still think about gambling - and I get a little flutter in my chest thinking about it. But I have to shut it down and be mindful of where I am. I’ve limited my sports viewing as they’re infested with gambling ads - not to mention the mere sight of points/goals will trigger my brain in to calculating points totals etc, which is bloody annoying.

    I hope one day I’ll be able to watch sports without thinking betting but I doubt it.

    Gambling sucked the life out of me. I’ve lost all my vigour, all my enthusiasm for life. It destroyed my soul. I think about how I was in my pre-gambling days, I hope I can return to that state of mind. It made me depressed for years - to the point where I wanted to end it all. 218 days in and I’m getting better. That’s all we can do is get better.

    Have a great week folks
