    Thanks @Maxy
    20 days today Whoo hoo!
    I bought some presents for people who’s birthdays are coming up, it’s a good feeling knowing that, that’s done instead of having the sick, stress feeling of, …….!!! What am I going to do, and then have to spend time lying and hiding to cover it up!!!
    Hope everyone is having a great weekend

    31 days today 💃
    @borisalexm22 it’s a great feeling to have reached this goal. I can see the difference in my life. I’m getting more things done around the house, have been able to pay my bills and have a bit of change, going to take me awhile to pay off gambling debts.
    It’s nice not to have that horrible feeling of working hours on end and spending it a couple of hours!
    Good luck with your journey, the stop gambling on my bank has been the best thing I’ve done.
    Have a great day everyone Thankyou for your support 😃😃
