    Hey how the F did I get here,

    Hope you have been well and still counting those days.
    Sorry been really busy so I guess I missed unwrapping all my presents for my 100 day celebration!!!!
    What did you buy me? lol
    I missed the party clearly!
    So yes Loser has been a winner and I think it's been around 112 days so far!
    WOW Thats the longest I have gone since 2013.
    I am so busy with my health, going to gym etc that it really has kept my mind off gambling also the fact that I started to gamble with money i cannot touch really
    was a eye opener and by next week thanked i will have repaid it all back and hopefully start to actually save some money.
    It really is early days and I fear when I get over my health routine I will resume my addiction but being self excluded really is helping this time around with the photo recognition camera's. I don;t think I will ever get over this addiction I will always have to try and keep it under control which is really annoying.
    Australian open is great really enjoying it so keep well add those days up and let's start to really celebrate hey!!!

    Hi Gypsygemin9,

    By the time you get a new kitchen. car etc you won't have any money to gamble with LOL
    Don't let a computerised rigged box steal your hard earned cash, enjoy yourself and buy that car!
    Goodluck

    Hi Everyone,

    Thought I would give some encouragement to other's and tell you about my absence journey so far. I did stop gambling 10th October 2019 it was extremely difficult however with finally trying to beat this addiction for over 20 years and having enough of feeling like **** and not looking forward to a future of struggle (no money) I continued on with barrier's in the way to stop gambling such as:

    1. No access to my money
    2. Cutting up my credit card's
    3. Limiting access to money on debit cards, Citibank is great to use as they are now cashless and you cannot withdraw money from these.
    4. Finding hobbies to keep me busy
    5. Lifetime ban from Crown Casino and banned myself from all pokie venues in Victoria (push for them to do this as they just like to do local venues.
    6. Making commitments like buying movie tickets at times when I would go gamble.

    I was doing really well and then Covid hit and even though you would think that helped and it did it also hindered me because of times of stress I would gamble to ease the pain. No not stressed from catching Covid but stressed at the real agenda behind it New World Order. (That's another story won't go into that) I am now 1 year and 7 month gamble free and yes I have thought's of returning to the pokies but the thought dosn't eat away at me for hours nor does it linger and come back constantly to taunt me. It's a thought .........and I think about all the fun I had in there and the nice warm hot chocolates that cost me $1000 from my pokie visits lol. I became religious reading the Bible and you know the New Testament is very interesting to read. No haven't read it front to back but bit's and pieces and the Bible states gambling is a devil's game. When you gamble your giving the devil power over you so follow the light and be God's children and respect yourself and your family's and try and not gamble. So the longer you go the easier it is to stop, yes I have thought's of gambling but not often I also try and remember how I would feel after "losing" and the power it had over me like it controlled me and even if I didn't want to go gambling I would somehow find myself sitting and pushing buttons and in no time all my money was gone. I feel really sad to think of how much money I donated to a machine and how much control it had over me saddens me deeply. I also feel scared if I am pushed enough I could return to my old habit's and the only thing that stops me is to not ruin my progress and is it really worth it. So to all of you trying to stop if you stopped for 24 hours only that's still progress YES IT IS! Because a waterfall begins from one drip and the next time you will stop for 48 hours and in time it may be a week and then a month etc and you too will get your life back. God bless
