    Hi panta it's very hard for the first week, make sure you plan ahead to keep yourself busy so you don't have to urge to gamble.
    I work alots so I'm quit lucky, but i drive pass pub n club everyday before and after work that not help at all, I just keep telling myself that I need to change and I can do, what I lost before it's the pass , concentrate on new me again gamble free.

    Keeping myself busy is the main key for me I think plus I want to join the gym after this stupid lockdown ends. Just so I can look forward to do something new and be excited

    I have handed over my accounts and money to my wife now. I don’t have any control of any of that now.

    Hi panta that was great you did that, my partner can't do that for me , cos I work for myself and he can't control the cash I spend, now after 1 month gamble free I feel like a new start of life again, I'm able to go away and shopping with friend n eat out etc without worried no money, I love my new life.
    We all here together I'm sure you can do it too. Believe in yourself .

    I can’t wait to enable to go shopping and not to worry. Just the simplest things I guess. Sounds silly but true. Day 5 is over. Tomorrow is pay day. Kinda feels weird not having control of my money anymore.

    Didn’t go in that round robin tournament at work 👍

    heya @Mona80 I'm sorry to hear that you had such a loss last night. That uneasy feeling is pretty common after such a blow, but I'm rally glad you've come here instead of going back out to try win it back.

    as @Anita44 says everyone here knows that feeling and we're here to support you. Have you got some people around you to support you right now?

    @TheTiges
    Besides keeping myself very very busy with work and home, I have been ok.
    The wife doesn’t trust at all at this stage which is sad. I need to keep reminding myself why she doesn’t trust me.

    I remembered I had money on one of the sporting apps left on. I logged on today. Looked at the balanced then I rang up the company and cancelled card with the company. I was kinda proud of myself.

    I could of had a sneaky bet and my wife wouldn’t even noticed. That was so tuff for me to do actually. I win another day!!!
