    Feeling a little proud

    Mon Dec 10, 2018 10:31 pm

    So usually when I come on here its to post bad news, you know the type that I've once again for the 50th time screwed up and gambled all my money away. However this time its different, Usually id come on here and say how I need to change etc yet a few days later start gambling again. I can no proudly say im 2 weeks gamble free and i'm loving it. I feel like the control is starting to come back. I know its only 2 weeks but for me that's a huge deal.
    Here to another 2 weeks and then more and more and more.

    Hey Redman,

    Fantastic you got to 2 weeks!! Hoping you have now made it 7 ish weeks!
    If not keep pushing and never give up trying to give up. Yes you may have come back here 50 times, if it takes 150 times, just don't give up, keep pushing!!
    All the best.
