    heya @Anita44, you should be proud of that! It's so good to hear that your stress levels are decreased, you deserve to have some down time, without the stress of money and bills behind you. How will you be spending your time off? :o

    Day 28 yay hi printemps and hi everyone here
    Was a awesome day off today, went out shopping with 3 other girl friend , I have so much fun, I can't remember when the last time I did that. Got some new clothes, lovely lunch, coffee and finish with bubble tea. We have so much laughs ever. Than I think I will do that more often.
    Got home off with my partner play tenpin bowling that was fun , I break my new record score 155 not bad.
    I didn't spend that much money today, but I enjoy the day been stress free Was so nice.

    Day 30 hi menz199 and hi everyone
    Since I'm stop gamble I tend to treat myself something or going out do thing , spending a little bit of money it's not gonna kill me, especially when I compare with pokies it's nothing and I come home with a happy face and no stress either and I'm sure you feeling the same way too.
    I learn to let go what I lost in the past and concentrate my future instead.

    It's been great with my new life, I couldn't believe my life can change, I hope I continue able to gamble free that would be great, but I know thing can change anytime.

    I'm still want to keep track until 100 day up, I want finish when I started.

    Hi printemps to be honest I didn't ring the helpline, but I just had enough of pokies, I earn good money but I have nothing to show for, I told my partner mum that I hate myself by doing that, she understands , I'm just telling myself that I don't want to loose everything I had. I just learn to let go with my pass and start my new day gamble free, even those I have some big bill but that just money I can work for it, but most important i have to be honesty to myself and family n friend cos the true it's the true .
    When my first day on this forum I did read alots of successful story and that motivated me more, I think if other people can do it I'm sure I can do it too. That why I'm here for 100 day challenge, to keep me on the right track.
    For the last few day I don't have any urge to gamble, cos I plan ahead for my day off etc . I will spend some of my money for eat out or shopping etc and I'm still manage to save some money even those it's not much but it's will build up in time and I don't have to stress anymore.

    Day 32 hi everyone
    So nice to wake up each day to a new me call normal life.
    I notice last few days I drive pass the pub before n after work, I don't even look at their carpark or anything, back than I always look see if they busy or not even I'm not going in.
    It's a horrible feeling, I don't want go on that road again.
