    Hi @Rocky1969,
    Welcome to the forums! Apologies, Chatty Tuesday wasn't run yesterday due to personal leave but you have definitely come to the right place to have a chat with other people going through the same as you in relation to gambling. I wonder if you have tried any software to block gambling on your phone and computer such as Gamban or if you have heard or would be interested in trying out self-exclusion from venues?
    Another thing you can try out in the forums is the 100 Day Challenge.
    Hope some of the above is helpful and please keep reaching out, this is a wonderfully supportive and non-judgemental community. :);

    Hi everyone,

    It's time for Chatty Tuesday, so I will be live until 10 pm AEST.

    I apologise for having been absent the last two previous weeks due to personal reasons. I would also like to let the community know that next week will be my last here as I am moving onto a new role. So do please check-in either tonight or during the week as I would love to get a final update on you all. :D

    How are you all? How's your week going? As usual, I'll tag a few of you to see who is around: @Menz199 @Jimap @Anita44 @Rm89 @Damaged_Armour @Kevcollingwood @JinxyWolf @Jamaica26 @JackRussel @massivegamblor @Bink @Rocky1969

    Hello @Lovely Cat Lady
    I’m doing ok, I have a bit of a rough time the past few weeks, but I’m soldiering on ok.

    Thank you so much for always being there for me while I completed my journey, it’s been very much appreciated.

    I don’t come on here too often nowadays, aside from chatty Tuesday’s, but I will say, I will miss our conversations.

    Hope all is going well with you.

    Hey @Menz199,

    Sorry to hear you've had a rough time the past few weeks.

    It's been my absolute pleasure and I will also miss our conversations. :o I really appreciate having been able to cross paths with people like you here. :D
    I will still be here for one more Chatty Tuesday next week if you're able too swing by. :cool:

    Thank you! All is fortunately going well, many new exciting things happening at a personal and professional level.
