    Hey @Anita44

    You sound really positive... it's really important to share your success with the people on here who might be struggling.
    When you're at the bottom, it can feel like it will never get better. You're a shining example of what can be...

    Keep sharing!

    Hi the_penguin
    Yes I know what it's feel like then I was struggling, 2 day before I start my 100 day I thought I am gonna get heart attack or something and I was feeling so sick and I was so scare to come back home after I loose all the money, mainly I have a few big bill to paid at the same time and I was gamble them all.
    I was stress for the first few weeks, than I manage to work myself back up again.
    Everyday I wake up I tell myself that I will never gamble again, I wouldn't even want to try, but I do get the urge now and than but I just have keep telling myself I am happy now than before so keep the new me instead, cos if i try to gamble I might not be able to walk away again.
    I learn to let go of what I lost in the pass and change myself to a better person before it's too late.
    I know it's never too late but it's just take longer to sorted out our financial problem that all.

    @Anita44 how's day 49 going for you?

    Badminton sounds like so much fun! How do you feel about seeing people you haven't seen in a while?

    Day 49 yay nearly half way now
    Hi printemps how are you doing?
    I am feeling great was busy early morning did some washing before play badminton, it's was great all my body feel like jelly now, cos I play with people they were much better play than me, but they said I'm not too bad as I have not play for a while now, was nice to see everyone again, I went for lunch after badminton with my cousin and doing a bit girl shopping it's was enjoyable.
    This is my first time since I loose all my money plus extra, I manage to save $200 this week, after I been doing alots of my shopping, it's doesn't sound much but I am feel proud and held my head high and say out loud that I am gamble free.

    @Anita44 only one day and then you'll be at 50! very exciting!

    I'm doing well, thank you for asking :o

    That's good that you've kept up some of your skills even though you haven't played in a while! that sounds like such a lovely day! $200 is still a lot! You should feel proud about that! Hold your head high and be proud of the fact that you're able to have these treats and save money!

    Will you celebrate your 50 days gamble free somehow?
