    Hey Britt,

    Things are going really well now. Things have settled back into their normal routines and life is good.

    One of the many thing that I have learnt during my journey is that bad days pass and good ones are right around the corner.

    Thanks

    HI All,

    Been quit a while since I've been on this forum so I thought with all the craziness that is going around at the moment it would be a good time to check in.

    I've noticed that the forum seems pretty quit at the moment which is understandable with everything that's going on but I must say I hoped that there would be some new faces on here trying to kick the habit. With all gaming venues shut I thought it's the perfect time to try and beat this terrible addiction. I just hope that online gambling hasn't sucked to many into it's vortex.

    If you are a new member here I would like to welcome you and congratulate you on your first step toward a gamble free future.

    So since I last posted I have reached my 3 year anniversary which is fantastic :cool: :cool: .
    Gambling is no longer a part of my life or my thought processes. My Kitchen reno is almost done, had a few delays but hey that's life right.

    I'm trying to come up with a new goal but at times like this that can be hard. Like all of us at the moment I'm struggling to come to terms with the world we are living in at the moment. I believe the shock of the situation has passed and now it's all about trying to deal with uncertainty of what's next. It sill doesn't seem real but I am one of the lucky ones. I still have a job and luckily live in the country so we haven't had any cases in our area, yet. Much like dealing with gambling addiction it's a matter of just taking it one day at a time. Not looking to far ahead and turning to those we love for support.

    I would like to thank this forum for all the tools and support that have been provided to me through what was a difficult journey but one well worth it. These tools have not only helped in my gambling journey but also in everyday life. New ways to deal with my emotions and stress has helped me stay on the gamble free wagon.

    I hope you are all well. Stay strong and remember there is light at the end of this tunnel and it is beautiful :); :);

    Hi Jinky

    Good of you pop in.

    These are strange times,

    I 'd not taken much notice until all the toilet paper was gone! l ended up habitially going to the supermarket every day coming home in despair! Till one day there was a pallet of toilet paper. I'd grabbed one... come home...go back and grab another even hiding from the check out chick l brought the first one from. Oh dear!

    Hi Jinxy,
    Great to hear that your going so well! I haven't been on here for a while but I'm still Gamble Free nonetheless.
    I'm lucky too in still having a job. I cut back to three days a week for a few weeks so I could stay home with the kids but back on full-time now.
    I can imagine I would have been in big financial trouble if this covid 19 happened in those dark years of my life.
    Now...
    Money in the bank, no debt, no worries!
    Just no toilet paper..
    Just kidding....

    Take care all,
    Cheers, Lee
