    @HelpfulBee
    Hey!
    Just ***** tired of my ****! Tired of the emotional rollercoaster that comes with gambling! I just could not bare another year of
    Destruction
    Torment
    Guilt
    Shame
    Depression
    Stress
    Self hatred
    Low self esteem
    No confidence
    Soul battering
    Disgust
    Sleepless nights
    Embarrassment
    Dwelling on what's been lost

    What else can I ***** throw in there? Seriously I know there's more I could add.
    The pokies have destroyed me, addicted to pressing buttons, for ***** sake!!!!

    I was gearing up for the 1st of Jan a couple of weeks before, knew that was it and I was and am so determined that 2020 will be gamble free! And of course I had a few other vices I wanted to kick that were also quite destructive to living the life I want to live. So yeah just pure determination to find the old me and be who I was meant to be in this life! And simply live a happy, beautiful life, that's all that's important to me.

    Wish you well on your journey! You can do it, you just gotta dig deep!

    @Springhope2020

    Hey! Thats fabulous! Keep up the awesome work!
    Damn I like the sound of that
    FAST FOOD FREE FEB!
    Keep us posted how you go and with the soft drink. I feel all the better for not putting so much **** in my body! I was literally going through maccas drive thru about 10 times a week, plus other junk!

    All the best with tackling all that you are trying!

    Just had a look back at an old thread of mine! I reached the 100 days last time on April 11th 2019.
    If my memory serves me correct, I think I lasted a couple of weeks after that then went back to old ways. And continued back on the destruction path up until December 31st 2019.

    Well here I am going for gold!
    Day 27 of sticking to the plan!
    Feeling very grateful for my life and everything I have. I may not have a lot of financial assets well tbh I have none lol but I have my health, my family has health and Im happy to be alive and to simply be able to appreciate the breeze on my face when I walk.
    Feel like I am finally living in the now!

    Day 27
    Praying that everyone goes well and sticking to their plan.

    🙏🙏🙏

    Absolutely smashing it HTFDIGH! Congrats - really beautiful to hear that you're feeling so present and like you're living how you were supposed to.

    I love this "So yeah just pure determination to find the old me and be who I was meant to be in this life! And simply live a happy, beautiful life, that's all that's important to me." !!

    Thank you @BrittV (facilitator)

    I feel like this is it for me now! I don't ever want to go back, I can't! I am focused and feeling free!
    I actually want to get out and explore life now.
