    Getting Serious

    Sun Nov 28, 2021 6:26 pm

    Hi

    I have been reading the forums for a while but never really committed to making a change. I thought it was a good idea and knew I should but I kept ignoring the problem.

    This weekend hasn’t been good , very bad in fact. It is time. I’m going to start the challenge. Day 1 tomorrow and a fresh start.

    Feels a bit strange posting this to fresh air and nobody in particular, but thanks to anyone who reads.

    Hi @Rm89!
    I'm really sorry to hear you had a bad weekend. This is definitely a process and it takes each person their own time.
    Well done for deciding to take on the 100 Day Challenge! It's will help you to keep track on our progress, focus on a quantifiable goal and reflect a long the way strategies and triggers. It's definitely been a great tool for many people. :);
    I would highly recommend going through the Making a Change section of our blog too. There's plenty of helpful resources such as Change strategies and self-exclusion.
    Keep us posted on how you're going. You're not alone, we're here to support you. :);

    Hi @Bink,
    This is such a wonderful idea, it's great to see you supporting each other! They say "a problem shared is a problem halved", and that's what the forums are all about: peer support. :D :D
    Let us know if you have any questions. :);
