    Hey @Anita44,

    Your partner sounds like a very wise person, and a very positive influence in your life. That makes two of us working today, LOL. :D But yes, working is definitely a great way to keep your mind off other things. :cool:

    Hi @Anita44 ,

    Definitely planning trips is great, to try and focus on not spending the money on gambling.
    You’re very lucky you have support with your husband. I am on my own,!however I have called the hotline a bit and have booked in counselling sessions.

    I work a lot so keeping busy is good to distract the brain. However I got some time of coming soon, a little worried about that, not so much gambling as i have put things in place like Gamban and removal of cards. I am more worried about the mind, slipping me into a dark depression. But I’ll try and not let that happen.

    okay everyone! it's the time of the week where we share the 3 things we're looking forward to!

    I'm in Victoria so one thing I'm looking forward to is the end of lock down, so I can see my family who live regionally.

    I'm looking forward to a nice sunny day so I can go for a walk with my friend!

    I'm looking forward to buying some flowers for my room because they make me happy! I know that's a bit sappy, but plants make me really happy!

    @Jimap @Anita44 @Menz199 @Kevcollingwood @Ali1 @loraineie69 @KAG @Lovely Cat Lady @yep123

    What are you guys looking forward to at the moment? I'd love to hear anything, no matter how big or small :o

    @Printemps I look forward too:

    Next 24 hrs gamble free

    Everyone with the addiction to signup here and start 100 days gamble free

    A government to say enough is enough, no you can’t have any more pokies, TAB or keno licences
