    Thanks @Lovely Cat Lady I appreciate it. :D
    Work became very busy towards the end. So the day end really well.

    Yes I understand I can't guarantee that I'll never relapse again, but my willpower to say no will get stronger overtime. You are spot on.

    Anyway I better be off to bed, as I starting to feel tired, so here's to a good night's sleep (hopefully). Hope your week is going good for you @Lovely Cat Lady Yes I hope this beautiful weather continues :D

    Day 18/100 still going strong

    Good morning @Menz199,

    That's good to hear.

    So true, it's a matter of consistency over time. And speaking of that, congrats for reaching Day 19 today! :cool:

    Hope you had a better sleep last night, and that you have a good day at work today. :);

    I'm glad you were able to sleep better, and that work is going great for you today.

    Hi all
    Another great day, work was good
    Not much else to say and pretty tired so I’ll leave this one short.

    Not sure on plans for the weekend, are you planning anything fun @Lovely Cat Lady ?

    Day 19 -still going great, very proud with myself on how far I’ve come so far. But the battle is far from over.

    Hello @Printemps
    That sounds good, if I'm not too busy i'll join you.
    Day 20 1/5 of the way there, feeling great.

    Today was great, work was very productive, tomorrow should be great, I might see an old friend of mine that I used to live with. Otherwise a busy day at work and looking forward to the weekend.


    Another short post, but I should try and find more things to say
    Day 20 - feeling great

    Hi Menz and everyone,

    I’m feeling depressed right now. Today is my first day seeking help or talking about it after I spent my house deposit for the last 2 months. I look online for help and this where I landed. I need to change before I loose my family too. I know over the years I have lost friends. I don’t really know what to do but for now I will focus on my family and my work hoping I can build it back up. Sorry for my depressing mood. Lets do it together, No more Gambling I hope. X

    Hey @DG

    So sorry to hear about where you're at right now; It's a horrible place to be. You are definitely at the right place to get support and help, and never apologise for how you feel. You're supposed to be honest and open here, so you're fine just the way you are.

    Calling the Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858 is another great resource. You can speak to a problem gambling counsellor 24/7, and you can get referral to free, local services to get some more regular support.

    Hope you're ok...
