    Day 97 ladies and gentlemen!

    (Before I begin writing I want to say sorry I don’t come back on the forum a lot. I just have a bad memory coming back online. My bad)

    I just want to get afew things off my back so here goes.

    1. Even though Iam close to been 100 days. It’s not enuff. I want more. I feel that gambling is worse then taken drugs (my opinion, I might be wrong in your eyes) on the daily we struggle, so we fight on the daily. It depends how bad you want it to go away and out of your life

    2. Savings account is booming! Happy days! P.s. I opened account for my 19 mths old school. That made me so happy and proud.

    3. My wife, she asks me here and there if I do still do it. I know how she feels, I know that she’s not fully recovered from the events I put her through but we are all still hurting from the past. The future is very promising she’s proud.

    4. ANYONE CAN IT!!!
    I promise you I never throught I’ll be on a forum saying the words “I did it and iam winning!” I promise you ANYONE CAN BEAT THIS ****. Smash it outta the park! You can do it, I promise you!

    Hi @Panta,

    3 more days, way to go!!! :cool: :cool: :cool:
    (And, no need to apologise, we're always glad to get an update, especially a fantastic milestone like this one ;); ).

    1. So good to hear you want more than 100 days. Does 200 days or even one year seem like a feasible goal for you at this stage? You can look at the 100 days as kickstart goal, and then go from there as you see fit for yourself. :D
    2. Wow, congratulations on tho booming savings account!!!! Very rightly deserved to be feeling proud. It's so fantastic you have such strong motivations such as your children. :o
    3. Sounds like you're aware of her thoughts, emotions and what the process has been for her overall. Have you shared with her your 100 Day Challenge? It might help in gaining trust back... small steps, but step by step, you'll get where you want to be. As you said, "the future is very promising", and I'm happy for you that she's proud.
    4. Amazing message to everyone in the forums! (Insert applause emojis here)

    I think @Printemps will agree with me in saying it's been a pleasure for us to follow your journey. I know I'm looking forward to see what the future has in store for you and your family. :);
    And although it's not the triple digit day just yet, I still want to say congratulations @Panta! You've come really far.
