    Happy Chatty Tuesday all!

    So how is everyone this week? You may like to talk about gambling problems, or something off topic. Jump in any time :) Everyone's welcome, the more the merrier.

    Simply say hey, and you may like to
    1 - Tell us about your week, and
    2 - Perhaps bring a question or topic you'd like to chat about
    .

    If you play App Store pokies not for money is this a trigger or can you use it as a substitute ????

    Well my week is pretty good so far. But considering it's only Tuesday.......

    I don't know after my stint on the weekend I was sure I'd have no urges again, but here we are 2 days later and the urge is strong and Im a bit down so the challenge will be tomorrow when I actually am in a position to gamble.

    I'm really good at giving others advice and encouraging them, but I guess all that goes out the window when it comes to myself.

    Tbh I have no real enjoyment in my life (except my daughter) which even then I don't know now anymore.

    I'm not the person I was before I broke after 5 years gamble free, don't even know who I am anymore. I don't even recognize myself in the mirror, nor do I recognize the sound of my voice.
    Lost, lost soul. Wish I could just be better!
