    Hi All. Good luck in the journey. The way I try to beat my urge is remembering my last relapse. I try to remember my last relapse and I say this to myself "it was the same urge last time that I couldn't beat and I ended up losing a lot of money and my partner's trust and did so much damage. Was it worth it? No. So why would I put myself into something like that? F it. And it goes away. Trust me. Try it. Stay strong. Good luck

    Hello @Icandoit

    Thank you for sharing your experiences.
    Remembering your last relapse and the consequence of it is such a powerful way to control your urge to gamble.
    I can feel your strong determination to stay gambling free.

    Keep it up everyone!
