    Days are ticking by and a new norm becomes just the norm. Fleeting thoughts but my barriers are keeping things strong.

    Hey @JB-nsw !

    It sounds like you're doing tremendously! I really like that you've noticed that these thoughts and urges are fleeting... They come, and they go!

    It also sounds like you've got some solid barriers in place - well done! :cool:

    Hey @JB-nsw just checking in to see how you are travelling - it's been a while and you were making leaps and bounds with curbing your gambling - it is a process though, isn't it - a bit of two steps forward and one step back and maybe relapsing and then not gambling again - what are your plans for the weekend and what has helped you so far - be great to hear from you :)

    Lyrics to the Whitlams song help sometimes.

    There was the stage, two red lights and a dodgy P.A.
    You trod the planks way back then
    And it's strange that you're here again, here again

    And I wish I, wish I knew the right words
    To make you feel better, walk out of this place
    And Defeat them in your secret battle
    Show them you can be your own man again

    Don't, don't explain
    Lots of little victories take on the pain
    It takes so long to earn
    You can double up or you can burn, you can burn

    And I wish I, wish I knew the right words
    To make you feel better, walk out of this place
    And Defeat them in your secret battle
    Show them you can be your own man again

    And I wish I, wish I knew the right words
    To blow up the pokies and drag them away
    'Cause they're taking the food off your table
    So they can say that the trains run on time

    Flashing lights, it's a real show
    And your wife? I wouldn't go home
    The little bundles need care
    And you can't be a father there, father there

    And I wish I, wish I knew the right words
    To make you feel better, walk out of this place
    And Defeat them in your secret battle
    Show them you can be your own man again, show them you can be your own man again.

    And I wish I, wish I knew the right words
    To blow up the pokies and drag them away
    'Cause they're taking the food off your table
    So they can say that the trains run on time

    Another man there was made the trains run on time
