    Hi @Chunkyquitter , something that helps you focus and connected with the nature may help? - I like cleaning or walking when my mind is wandering off to many directions. Have a peaceful weekend.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. The weekend was a breeze, filled with quality time and accompanied by those I love. Today is day 7, and while it’s an early post I have no hesitation making it as I have left my cards at home to rule out any temptation that may arise on my break. I hope everyone has a great week.

    Hi @LocalLad I am so glad you had such a quality time the last weekend.
    You are very determined that you have eliminated all possibilities of helping you go for gambling.
    Looking forward to hearing how the rest of this week goes for you!

    Thanks gzy3

    I definitely felt the urge today but managed to talk myself out of wasting another lunch break. Today is day 10 gamble-free.
