    @doug music is a must! :); That's cool youtube videos on adventure motorcycle and repair. Is that a passion of yours? Definitely a good way to pass the time.

    As far as stratagies .. Keep myself mentally occupied with something else besides gambling, it was very hard at first. But I havent gambled in 5 or 6 years. I lost count . I have wanted to at times .. But if I forced myself to thini about something else, or do something. In a few minutes the desire would go away.

    That is such an incredible achievement @doug , great stuff! :);

    Thank you for sharing with us your strategies and how you manage to resist temptation for 5 - 6 years.

    Distracting ourselves is key and finding something to take our mind off it helps.
