    Hi @Anita44

    Your doing great given your current circumstances, sorry to hear about the window, it’s crazy how much they can cost to replace.

    But none the less your doing a great job.
    Hope work is going good for you. :);

    Hi printemps hmm I still have the urge when I drive pass pub everyday on the way to work, but I just keep telling myself that I'm better off not gamble for a long run.
    I still remember the first day I join this forums I was feeling like s hit to be honest, I thought I'm gonna have heart attack or something that how bad it's get.
    I'm just so lucky to have my partner by my side and supported me, I am grateful for that. So everytime I have the urge for gamble I will think of that day what happening to me before than I wouldn't go their again.

    @Anita44 drawing on those past emotions can be a really strong motivator. It also helps you put into perspective how far you've come. Each time you drive past that pub and tell yourself no, your building up your strength, and each day those urges will get a little bit easier to manage.

    Your partner sounds like a wonderfully supportive person! It's so important to surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you, and it sounds like you have that! :o

    @Anita44 he really cares for you, one thing that really stands out to me is that you guys are able to have these difficult conversations and be there for each other. That was a lucky google search, remember you're the driving force behind your change. Paying off the bill, managing with the broken window at your shop, you've had the strength to persevere and stick with it! you should be feeling so proud :o
