    Self excluding is an awesome step. Removing the ability and taking away the access is definitely a first step.

    You’re only young and you’ve been burned, try and remember the pain but move forward.

    Just remember you’re now a man who used to gamble.....it feels really good to be honest about your gambling. In 5 years times when someone talks gambling.
    It’s will fee to say I don’t gamble,I used to but I couldn’t control myself and it’s a tax on the dumb. I’m so much better off without gambling in my life.

    Gym is good... but too hot in summer! plus its something you did "when gambling" ..??

    By CHANGE I meant like something totally new... challenging ... and Something kinda new to "think" about. Like some-one said in another post learn a new language... not everyone's cup of tea I gather BUT what have you always wanted to do that you put off... Something that might take you out into the Sunshine..? golf? Jogging? ride a bike ?

    All the best Lmk ... slay strong?
