Ok here I am again trying to get the value of money sorted out. I have been saving a little bit of money ever since I stopped gambling. I have been keeping it in my house and haven’t been tempted to spend it. I need a special laser and massage and because of no money I haven had it for a few years or my partner has paid. I need the treatment badly because my legs are swelling but I don’t want to spend my money. I have been more than happy to feed it in the machines and more than happy to spend my partners money BUT I DO NOT want to spend my own 😥 I think I will book my appt today but instead of being proud of having the money I feel very sad about having to use it. Perhaps even annoyed. My poor partner never once complained about helping me. I guess this is all part of the long road to recovery. (All this worry over a measly $140.00, hahaha). You know my partner would still pay for it, probably my brother would pay for it if he knew but that won’t teach me any thing. Stopping playing is not necessarily the hardest part it’s what comes after as well..

Congratulations on 67 days Jeddie,

Although u cant show your brother today you can tell all of us. We are particularly excited as WE know how hard it is to quit and stay quit. As your signature reads.

Maybe you can show him on day 70 or 75..

Stay positive and be proud of yourself !

Hugs Jeddie!

Well done on 67 days!

I'm having a bit of sook today too! Troubles with phone and internet ... feel like grabbing one of those NBN fellas by the ear and dragging him to my place to fix the phone!

Hi everyone, day 67 GF for me. I am feeling ridiculous annoyed this morning. Today is the long awaited day when my big brother was going to check all my bank accounts, receipts and purse so he would know and I can prove that I haven’t gambled for SIXTY SEVEN days. I am so proud of myself. Any way he has a chest infection and can’t come.. the old me would have had a sook and perhaps gone to the pokies (that would teach him, NOT,) Anyway I won’t go but gee I am disappointed.. what a funny lot we are..
Have a great gf day today wherever you are. 24 beautiful degrees here in Adelaide today

The movie is called “going for broke� great to watch how the young Mum became addicted.

I’m not sure about the Casino but I think in the general area there it is only coins with the lovely plastic pokie cups.

I watched a pokie movie and the woman cashed in $500 in America and they gave her the coins in a beautiful silver bowl. She still lost it just as quickly 😥

l have not been to the Crown casino for years. l did not feel comfortable in there that last time I was in there over 5 years ago! l usually went to local D-dens early in morning 8 am because it was quieter -Or when I had car late at night. Gawd damn places! Am so over them! Just the very thought of them hits a nerve now!

Hi Jeddie

I couldn't believe when you said you can only put coins into the machines in SA. I would feed $50 after $50 into the machines but now you dont even get money out you get a ticket! You have to then take the ticket to a machine to get your money if its under $5 they give you another ticket to poy off your credits! You can cash it at cashier but thats normal to much hassle! They want you to lose your last few dollars especially CROWN.

In relation to the pokie players 1st thing in the morning! CROWN is 24/7 i am ashamed to say but I have often gone in at Midnight when my pay hits my account and would still be there at 5,6,7,8 am SAD i know! There are also venues around me that are open to 4am, 6am or 8am! They close for 2 hours and then open again! Its so bad and they wonder why so many people in Victoria have gambling problems!

I dont ever want to go back to my old life controlled by my pokie addiction!
