28 days gambling free today, another day put to bed....I have been really busy working this weekend and not finished yet. I'm really exhausted...I have no urge to gamble at all. Tomorrow is another pay day, so that will be my fourth pay with no gambling.....Wow my next bank statement will have no withdrawals for gambling. I am so happy....The longer I stay away, the more resilient I get and do not wish to gamble and have to start over again.

Aaagghh a curve ball.....not gambling! I went to town yesterday in the bosses Landcruiser which I always drive. I have to drive on tracks for 40 k's and don't have any trouble with that. I got back home and was reversing and damaged the car on the edge of the fence that I did not see. I felt terrible, then had to tell my boss when she got back from town. I know it is only a car, but I'm normally so careful! So now my budget has taken a hit because I will have to pay for the damage!! Anyway she took it quite well and knew I was pretty upset about it. I will not gamble to make up that loss, I will just take the hit! I don't know if she'll let me drive the car again though!

Hey Renee....Good on you for that! It is so hard when they hound you like that! I am doing really well, no urges at all, although I only have enough in the bank for supplies when I go to town tomorrow. I haven't been to town for about 4 weeks. I am keeping my funds really low by paying bills as soon as I get paid so I am not tempted "to try a little bit!!" I am living like a mouse! I get food and board where I live and I buy "treats" for myself when I go to town so I don't really need to keep much in my account! I am really pleased where I am at. I keep e-mail contact with my psychologist and she is very supportive as well. I'll see her when I go to the city in April for my holidays. What's great is I will have enough money to enjoy my holday because I will not be gambling ANY of it!! Cheers!

How are you going? I am at day 11 and feeling good. No major urges. A couple of online casinos I had forgotten about came out of the woodwork and emailed me out of the blue with bonus offers etc. have now self excluded from them too. It's never ending though.... You self exclude and they then tel sister sites who then start with the random mail outs and it's not only email I get them in the post also. All the way from Malta. Has been happening for years. Sites I have never even played at.

Hope you're doing ok

Good job 😊
It's so hard that the urges of online gambling are 24-7 and you can fxck it all up at any hour of the day. Well I gambled at all hours anyway. Have been really busy with work and kids today and not a risk tonight. Surprisingly very tired. I'm going with that feeling completely and going to go to bed. I'm an insomniac from way back. It is a serious health concern of mine I have ignored for over 10 years but when I do get tired I sleep and I'm tired tonight. Getting these kids in bed and tapping out myself 😊
Let's see tomorrow through together too

So happy.....just cleared all the bills on my budget for this weeks pay. I had strong urges to gamble. Those voices in my head that say "Just try a little bit and it may help with some of the debt and you can get ahead" I was really tempted but thankfully the 100 day challenge and all the support I am getting on this forum helped me see sense. Also looking at the amount of debt I have cleared in three weeks without gambling is amazing. Please let it continue!!!
