    Well done on 6 days @KAG

    It is good to hear there is a clear distinction being made: between the list and the listless!
    Keep ticking things off your list!

    Hi @KAG,

    Congratulations on reasching 11 days gamble free!

    Wow, good on ya' for squashing those triggers! That's so fantastic! :D Was the trigger knowing you'd drive by the venue or something else?

    That sounds good, I'll check that one out. I'm currently hooked on a thriller called 'Who killed Sara?' on Netflix. :cool:

    Seriously, good job, keep up the good work!

    Day 12 and gamble free

    Yes I did it and went out with friends and said I canโ€™t gamble so guess what we had beautiful chats instead so much better

    And my trigger yesterday was driving pass venue and having 1 hour child free which is not a good combo!

    Feeling strong and proud ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ™โœ…๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŒธ
