Just checkin in 61 days GF!

Things have been up and down. I have been still sick which is definitely getting me down and struggling day to day!

Also dealing with banks/creditors!

I have an amazing counsellor she really has helped me alot and I am getting alot out of our sessions!

I am trying really hard to be positive but I am still struggling with urges, and my past actions that have put me in this position! How could I have been so stupid!

Today marks 50 days GF!

I am happy I made the effort to quit after my last relapse! Last time I made it to 128 days GF this time I want to make it more permanent. My relapse proved to me that once I gamble again even just once i lose control. Chasing my losses or chasing more wins! Getting into more debt, losing more time, telling more lies its mentally and physically exhausting.

I am more committed then ever to clear my debt and finally be free! I feel like once my debt is cleared then I can finally start to move on without the constant reminder of how close I was/still am to losing everything! Realistically it will be probably 2 years until my debt is gone. But each one that I clear feels like a small victory!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Hi @Springhope17 how are you going, i note that your last post was about getting some counselling. That is a good positive step in the right direction. I am glad it provided the support you needed. Have you had any further sessions and how have you been faring?.

44 days GF!

I had a few urges over the weekend i think it was because I know I have $500 sitting in my account waiting to next pay to pay out a pay day loan!
My head started to say If you could just double that $500 it would help pay a few bills!
Then the other half of my head saying NO i don't do that anymore! Thats not me! Its never worked in the past! If it you wouldn't be in a mountain load of debt! You are stronger then these urges!
So i guess I am beating the urges so far! Hope everyone had a good weekend!

40 days GF today!

I have been struggling with a nasty cold the last few days which has been really physically draining me! So that has meant my mood has been down and low. But i am still trying to remain positive! Nearly at the half way point in the 100 day challenge 10 days to go.
