    Day 0 of 100 I am ready!

    Fri May 21, 2021 5:08 pm

    Hi all
    I am new to this forum but I have been trying by myself to give up but it’s not working so I am starting my 100 day challenge now

    Pokies is my addiction and I really hate and love them at the same time!! I am been slowly getting back to old habits of over 20 years but now the bet has got higher and higher and i am
    out of control
    I somehow just get drawn back like a magnet it’s weird when I feel great or sad it still draws me and it just has power over me.

    I just want to stop this habit and get back my power as I am sick of wasting money and time it’s just taking away everything

    Today I will try again but this time I will track my days and use the tools and asking for your support to get me through when I get the stupid urges!

    I am ready and it starts now.

    Thanks xx

    Hi @KAG

    I love the determination in your post. Having a positive attitude can be such a powerful tool in overcoming an addiction/nasty habit.

    Looking forward to hearing about your progress!

    hi @KAG I just wanted to check in and see how you're going today? It sounds like you've had a really difficult time, but at @the_penguin says, there so much determination! Using this space as a journal can be really helpful, as you can reach out for support and get encouragement from others who have had similar experiences! Keep us updated :);
