    Hi Everyone

    Thanks for the encouragement Britt it helps a lot.

    Well I am half way through the challenge hard to believe, I even tempted fate on the night out, went to the Casino and they bought me a drink and I watched a lady gamble and it left me wanting to partake badly, but I was determined not too. We all have a choice to go in or not too!
    Not sure if it was a smart move on my part and I would have been so disappointed in myself if I had given in to the temptation, but I didn't.
    It was risky behaviour and that's how you come unstuck.

    So now I am planning an overseas trip next year and that is what I am saving for :);

    My loan/rent and bills are all up to date and I have a spare few hundred in the bank all in 6 weeks, what will 6 months look like I wonder?

    The difference is I know what gambling looks like, very very clearly what I don't know is what its like to save and not gamble, that's a new experience, its so hard to budget, I have never really done it before, so hard to say no to things I want and making myself wait :);

    Best wishes to you all - L

    Welldone @@Linda6

    You're right we all have a choice whether to gamble.
    You have regained your power over the gambling! I'd imagine that scenario to be quite difficult being at the casino, but overcame the temptation.

    Keep going, You're doing fantastic work.
