    I noticed a strange thing, im not even counting days like I was before. I have a sense in my mind that its more like a lifestyle change. Hard to explain really, but it feels different and im liking it. Hopefully not a short lived honeymoon period.

    At the moment enjoying not wanting to go and no real urges, and not having to stress about money is also good.

    So its been over a month now since I have gambled. Last few days I have had a few fleeting urges triggered by the news showing pokies or a Facebook ad or similar. 2 minutes and its gone, but happy I can't go down the road on a whim thanks to self exclusion.

    Havent even been checking my bank balance which is a nice feeling.
