Update: Still going strong. No urges. No care or thoughts about gambling. Spending money on experiences. Still a bit frustrated about losing so much money, when it could have paid for other stuff, can't change the past. Just the present. It is okay to be frustrated, a relapse is disappointing, but I am pretty aware in how I let it happen and what I need to do differently in the future.

I feel like my usual self. I have been gamble free for a long time, just relapsed pretty hard. So my goal here is not to gamble at all, and monitoring it here might just be a way to help me get to the end of the year without a bet since this thread was created...

Hi @M_4567

Congratulations! Really happy to read that your sense of your old self is returning.

Regret about the losses helps fuel your determination.

One day at a time.

Streak is still live. No urges. No thoughts. After this 100 day streak is complete I might check in less to round out the year.

No gambling. In 2 weeks the 100 days will be up which is a good outcome.

100 days complete without gambling.
Probably at a stage where I don't need to post here any more. Hopefully, I never need to return to the forum, but you never know, the mind has a sneaky way of justifying past vices.
I will start afresh 100 days and mark it in my calendar.
