    I don't have the urge to gamble anymore and if I do one day I have to think twice before I gamble again.
    My life change alots, I don't have stress anymore, I don't have any anxiety now.
    I am happy spend my hard earn working money on shopping eg clothing, handbag and shoes instead or going out for a nice lunch with a few girlfriend instead.
    Their so much thing out their I can spend my money on.
    I feeling amazing now, we been quite busy with our house at the moment, their so much to do, my partner are amazing he did most of the work.
    I work so I only can help drop of kid to school and I off to work, but he still got another 10 day off leaves before he back to work. Hopefully he will finish before than, that would be great.
    A big thank you to all the support from this forums,
    Especially printemps & lovely cat lady you both are amazing to me, I couldn't do it without you both cos your support and your encouragement mean so much to me.
    And my wonderful partner that I love him more than my gamble life, that why I try my very best for him and the people I love in my life.

    @Anita44

    I'm good, thank you for asking :o

    You've worked really hard, and deserve to feel great and be able to treat yourself! I'm s happy to hear our encouragement has been useful, but you're the one who's done the hard yards! And you've done it all while giving such amazing support to others here! Being able to see how far you've come and the positivity of your posts and how happy you sound has been such a privilege!

    It sounds like your partner is smashing the renos, which is great! He seems like a really wonderful person to have in your life, and incredibly supportive!

    I hope you're having a great Friday!

    Day 76

    Hi printemps
    Yes I think he will finish this weekend, as my day off tomorrow I will help him where ever he need me to do.
    Yeah I would describe my partner as a black diamond that rough at the edge, but he just the right person for me and I wouldn't change him, sometime he **** me, but over all his perfect match for my life.
    I feel great now, I don't worried if I have the urge either cos I am telling myself that I would not play again.
    Their more thing to do than just gamble.

    Hi @Anita44,

    How are you?

    Oh, how exciting! Sounds like the house mods are going really well. Yes, paint and new flooring can really work their charm in making a home look brand new. Good to hear you're able to stay with your in-laws in the meantime. Very soon you'll be enjoying your home's new look.

    Incredible how positive things in our life's snowball into more positive things. Since you quit gambling, so many good things started snowballing into your life too. :D
