    What's happened to this place? I feel like i have walked into the state library. Either everyone is gambling or have stopped?
    I'm going to start day 1 from tomorrow.

    Hey and welcome back.

    I saw in another post that you've self excluded from everywhere and it's sounding like you have a lot of motivation - great to see. I especially like this line "its time to take my life back and not feel like crap anymore" - something I think a lot of people can relate to.

    I hope you find the community to be helpful and supportive to you at this time. And already seems like you have some great helpful tips to share. Looking forward to hearing more about your journey :)

    BrittV, community mgr

    Thanks Pamela looks like it's been years since you have gambled Congratulations!

    Thanks BrittV I plan to check in here and there, I don't know if I am motivated it's like I have no choice as if i cross over another line I think there would be no going back so I am trying to protect myself, won't be easy but have to try!

    Hahaha! Hey old Popeye.
    I remember seeing some old posts by you, all edited if I'm correct.
    Which btw, how stupid you can't actually delete a post in this forum but you can edit it to remove content.

    Anyway welcome back, I am just coming back today after 2 years on and off here!
