    Hey @Padamb , Thanks for the note mate.

    Well today is Day 40 for me. Do i feel any better? Not really to be honest, im waiting for that to come, but i suspect there are issues far deeper than this which is preventing me from feeling better.

    Am i financially better off? Absolutely, so thats something. Feeling really determined, just rather black.

    Hope you all have a great weekend everyone.

    Much love x

    @BrisbaneLad 33 days is still great, you've smashed a month.

    I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling great though. It sounds like you have an idea of what might be influencing how you're feeling at the moment. Do you have any approach of how to manage it or work through it?

    It's also important to remember that changing such ingrained patterns of behaviour, like gambling takes a lot of energy. Even though you know whole heatedly that you're on the right path, change can be draining. So be kind with yourself, and as you say, that good feeling will come to you.
