    Going to give the 100 day challenge a try

    Mon Jul 26, 2021 6:58 am

    Need to change my ways and this hopefully is the way to go.
    Being accountable for my actions.
    No online slots and no pokies.
    Its getting beyond my control now.
    And need a change for the better
    Will see how i go.
    Will find other activities to fill in the day and resist the urge.

    heya @Nemo55 , how are you going today?

    It sounds like you're really ready for a change! Have you got an idea of what activities you can do to distract yourself?

    As @Anita44 says, one day at a time is the best approach!

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Although online slots are not my poison, I hear there's software and other measures that prevent you from playing. You'd want to find out about that.

    You got a fight ahead of you mate, don't take it lightly.

    There's No such thing as "Just Once"

    You want to stop gambling? Ok great, put your boxing gloves on.

    same here but I have no urge. I know socially friends will want to go to a gaming venue but Im not interested, I have been sleeping so well no anxiety, enjoying doing other things, daily walks, gardening. Might go for a nice drive and the weekend and lunch somewhere. Those machines aren't getting any more of my money.
    Stay strong everyone and when u think about gambling remember the feeling u have after a loss, its not worth the heartache.

    If you can do without those "friends" it's best thing you can do, ditched one lot when I gave up drugs, ditched another lot when I stopped gambling heavily.
