    Well done @LocalLad! You should feel proud, two weeks is a massive effort and I cant wait to hear of more success.

    For those on here just starting there journey, is there anything that you have found particularly useful or might recommend?

    Hi LocalLad,

    Sherpa09 here, (one of the moderators on the forum). Well done on 2 weeks gambling free!! (PurpleP), I would become familiar with the Gamblers Help website https://gamblershelp.com.au/get-help/ where you can find some useful resources on your journey to become gambling free :) Great effort again LocalLad and look forward to both of your future posts!

    Sherpa09.

    Hey Shattered WELL DONE! Did you know you could self exclude from every venue? Also another good trick is CITI Bank is cashless. Open an account and cut up the card then deposit your wages into a normal account and transfer into the citibank account and guess what? You cannot withdraw from this account! HEY PRESTO no money no temptation! Want to pay bill? Transfer from your citibank account and pay them!

    Thank you. I officially crossed the one-month mark on Monday. Little temptations creep in but I’ve managed to stay away.
