    Hi @Anita44,

    So glad to hear work has been busy, better busy than not. Hopefully it stays that way. :);
    Oh, nice! Beers and salted roasted cashews, sounds like you had a fun Friday. :cool:
    Hopefully the painting is going well today. Painting can be fun but it's also tricky to get right.

    Day 72 gamble free, what a life changer it's been for you. :D

    Day 72 yay

    Hi lovely cat lady, how are you doing?

    Yes my partner he always pick up little thing on the way, so he just have to fix up.
    Tomorrow he will finish painting the ceiling, than start on the wall after that.

    My life change completely since I been gamble free, it's was a bit hard to start but give it take after a few weeks everything will getting better.
    I don't have the urge to gamble anymore that was a great thing.
    If i can do it I'm sure everyone who addicted to gamble they can do it too, just give yourself sometime and take one day at the time.

    Day 73 hi everyone

    It's a bit cold in the morning but it's a beautiful day sunny.
    I went back to my house checking out my partner painting the house, all the ceiling are done now, it's look amazing, he will start on the wall tomorrow.
    I went clothes shopping before going to work, I was running 1 hrs late, I just go oh well not gonna kill anyone if I'm a little bit late.
    Got myself Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirt and Tommy Hilfiger hoodie and Furla wallet I was very happy with what I got today, everything all on special.
    Got some of the clothes from just Jean for my partner they all on special too.
    I am feeling very happy with myself that I rather spend money that I enjoy doing instead waste on gamble, it's was so wrong before, I am glad that I am able to change for my family.

    Hi @Anita44,

    Good on you for doing a shopping session before work. Sounds like you found some really good deals and that you're really happy with all the new purchases. :D Haha, sometimes it's okay to be a bit late...

    It's so great to hear your family is such a great motivation for you to stay on track. I'm sure they're very proud of you too. :cool:

    Yay for Day 73!

    Hi lovely cat lady, how are you doing ?

    Yes I don't want to loose my partner and my business.
    Instead of keep say sorry, at less I give myself a time, opportunity to change.
    But I know I couldn't do it by myself, cos I been try many time by myself, it's keep going back to square one again.
    That why I am here reaching out for help and support from this forums.
    It's been amazing
