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
