Hi,
Thanks for letting me know, WOW half way there already!!!
I can gladly say I have not had a single bet since I started thus challenge.
I was a little tempted on Saturday as I was home alone and briefly considered putting $50 in to play with and having a few beers - I obviously said no so went outside and did a bit of work on the camper trailer.

Just over half way now, so looking forward to making it to day 100!

Thanks 😊

@Hollymonster 50 days without a bet is a really fantastic job!

It sounds like on Sunday you worked through that urge and refocused on something else! Every time you are able to push through those urges, it gets easier in future! :o

Keep us up to date on how you're going! And any other techniques that have been useful for you!

Well today I did just that and I think forward the first time ever truly now believe it. I am going to do this 100 day challenge and then I will tackle everything else as I go along. I woke up today loathing myself and for the first time in my life having crazy thoughts. I just feel so much hatred towards myself and alot of sadness today but I know tomorrow is a new day and hopefully to the start of a new chapter - I can only hope anyway.

Hey,
WOW day 75 already!!
It really has gone by so fast, there's no urge to have a punt and the habit has changed.
The 1st 2 weeks were the most difficult but after that it's been easy.
Just getting over the habit of a drink and gamble was what I really needed to conquer and since then its been a breeze 😊

@Hollymonster That's really fantastic to hear! It sounds like you worked out drinking was a trigger and worked through that, honestly identifying triggers and working out how to overcome them is so difficult, so good on you!

I love the positive tone! You got through those first two weeks and now look at you! :o
