Congratulations Mona that is absolutely amazing, I'm really happy for you!
That slip up was a huge show of strength - you were able to walk away after that first note went in which is an absolute credit to how far you've come and how committed to yourself and your happiness that you are!!

Congratulations :) :)

And by the way, we are very thankful for having you on here for one year!

12 months today! since my first post and journey to free myself from the gambling demon!

I still feel uncomfortable about that minor slip... it's been tough at times! like today! so I'm not really in a cheerful mood!

But I do feel happy that I've survived the year without gambling! Every payday still has me on tenterhooks,.. but not as anxiously as those first months. l go into auto pilot now to protect myself and the money!

To everyone still struggling... you can do it! it is tough but it is worth to fight through those urgesl Give yourself a chance to enjoy life as it should be without those gambling hangovers and anxieties that come with it! Be strong & stay strong!

Thanks Cazza & Britt'

Yes I'm ok. a mix of emotions ... l had been questioning these emotions and not running away from them.

l saw the mention... thank you. l try to help as much as I can and hope people do get the help and get on that path to a gamble free life.

My grandmother used to make a mean rabbit stew!

I've had some devastating news Thursday afternoon... so I haven't gone to do the self exclusion but I had asked a friend to take me some time this week or the next as I want to get it done before my next counselling session.

I'm having a busy week with assignments and readings in this short weeks break! then there's exams to study for! Looking forward to the long summer break! And Christmas! ha ha.

Good to see you are staying strong Cazza. Take care and have a great week !
