    I've been good, thanks. Looking forward to the end of lockdown and enjoying spring's beautiful weather as much as possible. :D

    I'm glad to hear you've been good and your business has been very busy. Great work building up the join account! Hope you're also feeling very proud of yourself, the self-exclusion has been a huge step forward for you. Aside from the car insurance, happy for you that things are moving forward overall. :);

    Hi lovely cat lady

    Yes I am very proud of myself been self exclusion from the venue, for the long run it's much better for me.
    Cos I am take this gamble addition seriously and I just don't want to loose what I got at the moment, if everything turn to sh it cos of my gamble, I will never forgive myself.
    Family and business come first, so I am happy to satisfy my gamble addition, replace shopping and save money up for new car next year instead.

    Hi everyone

    How are you all doing?

    Not been in here almost 2 weeks now, been busy with work, finally got my car back yesterday that was good, it's take forever.

    Been live a normal life now, not been gamble since self exclusion from casino and bar n pub.

    I start carrying more cash now and not worries that I will gamble either, cos I can't.
    My partner don't need to ring me in the evening after work anymore.

    And our saving are going up every week now , I am very proud of myself been self exclusion it's the best thing I ever done.

    Hi @Anita44,

    How are you?

    Great to hear things are going well and the urges have been keeping at bay since the self-exclusion.
    Good job on doubling the money for the joint account! Looks like you will be able to reward yourself with gold jewellery pretty soon. :);

    Hope you have a good start to the week today.
