    It can take some time to find your feet with it. Breaking any type of habit can be difficult, but as time goes on and by finding more strategies to use it can get easier along the way.
    How have you been going the past week?

    Great to hear the grit, despite the recent difficulty. Some would say the present is only a result of the past temporarily. After that you make 2021 the year of change, the year you idealise. Goodluck.

    Day 8 already, can not lie that I don’t think of gambling daily, got this disease beat for 8 days, why not 80, 1 day at a time, don’t try to rush, enjoy the ride, minute by minute, I hate you as much today as I did on the first day, get out of my life.

    Wow day 19, I posted day 19 last time, I cannot believe I am here again, I was cruising with over 100 days, next minute I am spiraling out of control again, so bad all I wanted to do was a weekend without gambling it had gotten that bad. So what was my trigger, going out and start watching, first the keno, people playing pokies, listening to races, yer I am in control, not, lessons learnt, stay away from temptations, you have no control, time makes you think that, you start to save a bit, it has not changed, your luck will not change, if it does it will be temporary. Note to self [if] when I make a 100 days.
