Hi Guys,

I would like to thank you for all your kind comments and congrats after my last post.

So checking in once again, just hit 19 months today woohoo :cool: :cool:
Finally picked up my new golf clubs and new golf bag, haven't tried them yet, don't want to get them dirty :p :p hehe
Now that I've reached that goal, I have a new one. I've started picking out new flooring for my home, carpet for the bedrooms and lounge room and timber laminate for the entrance, so super excited about that :cool: :cool: .
Bad month for bills so focused on that at this stage, but once that is done, I can get stuck into the floors

So things are ticking along quite nicely at the moment, so keep your chins up everyone and keep up the fight to be free.

Well done Jinxy Wolf. I am at 12 weeks gamble free today, I agree. A life without gambling is great. I have had a difficult week. My 84 year old mother has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, so major stress this week. Gambling did enter my head, but I didnt follow through. Time to make my list of jobs for the weekend which doesnt include gambling.

Well done Jinky! And Catherine!

So good to see your posts!

It's 11 months tomorrow since l joined the forum and started my gamble free journey! It's had its moments... still filling in those gambling gaps. l could be doing something and think I used to be at the pokies at a time like this ... I'm still limiting cash and I'm amazed at how many books I've brought from Op shops with little cash! ha ha! I'm going to have to save for another book shelf now!

I even got a couple in a different language .-I've no idea what yet! It should be fun trying to translate them when I get some time over the summer break!

Stay Strong!

Mona
