    It's so lovely to see other people opening up on this forum. I feel less alone. Good luck, everyone, on your fight! We must contain this beast within each of us, otherwise it can consume us and hurt our loved ones.

    Hi @Gooldyfish76 good on you for reaching out here, it sounds like your relationship is a major factor in your desire to change you gambling habits.

    What strategies do you have in place currently?

    You might like to check out the 100 Day Challenge threads, a lot of people find it useful to track their gamble free days, and journal in their threads as a way to keep themselves accountable.

    @JinxyWolf @pamela @Kevcollingwood @Damaged_Armour @Squeaky do you have any advice you can give?
