    Hi Lovely cat lady sorry I missed your note lastnight. I am doing well and have not been online for a while but thought I’d check in for some motivation.

    Currently around the 175 day mark for me and back to work post lock down which I am happy about. Minimal urges but they do still occur.

    I’ve been noticing a lot lately the advertisements for sports betting - not only on the sporting channels either, they have them every 3rd add during the 6 pm news which is amazing. Reminding me of the old smoking advertisements during sports viewing. I sent a complaint to foxtel yesterday about it. Hopefully one more voice helps, probably not.

    Hope everyone enjoys the end of the lockdowns and some healthy hobby’s and friendships.

    Thanks

    Hi @Welito,

    I just saw your post, sorry for the late reply.

    Thanks for checking-in and massive congratulations on reaching the 180 days mark now! Good job! So good to hear you're back to work post lockdown and having minimal urges.

    And well done on sending the complaint to Foxtel. Although change might not happen immediately, the more voices, the greater the chances of something occurring.

    And thank you!
    Keep us posted on how you're going with life post lockdown. :);

    Hi @Menz199,

    Really good, thanks. Yes, it's been nice being able to reconnect with friends and socialise.

    How's freedom been treating you?
