    Hi @pamela

    That's so fantastic to hear what you have gotten out of the forums and what a huge achievement in giving up gambling. AMAZING!!! :);

    Yes I think there is a lot of concern about when the machines get turned back on.

    What strategies have you got in place to look after yourself during that time?

    Hi everyone,

    Welcome to tonight's Chatty Tuesday session we'll be running until 10pm AEST :);

    The last few months has been an interesting time with venues being closed during Covid19. It's been really positive for many who have been able to take a break and get on top of their gambling. There's been concern about what to do when venues start to reopen around the country.

    Our recent blog focussed on "Keep your gambling on lockdown - 7 tips to stay in control as venues reopen".

    Would love to know how you are going during this time and what tips you may have to stay in control of your gambling that you could share with others?

    I'm going to tag some members, everyone is welcome to join in, it would be great to hear from you @Springhope17 @Jc @doug @TimTam @Budrok @Kevcollingwood
