    100 days starting today

    Mon Oct 25, 2021 11:55 pm

    I can't seem to get a handle on my online slot games. It's too convenient to stop. I have now deleted all apps that are involved and have done self exclusion to help my want to stop.
    I feel it taking control of me and I just dont like that feeling.
    I've lost way to much money on there and it's not helping my stress levels.
    I cant seem to stop depositing money on it.
    Hoping trying this 100 day challenge will help me in the right direction and help my problem.
    I'm not sure what is my next step but hoping to work it out soon.
    Let's see how I go.

    heya @Nemo55

    It sounds like things have been really difficult lately. It's really great that you've come back to the forums and you're putting self-exclusion in place. You're taking all the right steps right now.

    Do you have some strategies in place to help when cravings or urges hit?

    do others in the forum have some words of advice @Anita44 @Paris196563* @BrisbaneLad @Chandyyy99 ?

    I'm just trying to keep myself busy. Working and trying not to think about gambling.
    Deleted everything that reminds me off it helps.
    So far so good.
    I'm happy
