    Hi Elizabeth

    Hope you are abit ok now.

    It is very hard to break away from the habit, The machines have twisted our mind and we ''unconsciously" go back pay after pay. It takes a lot of energy to fight the worse of urges in the first few weeks. We need to be aware of what we are fighting.

    Maybe it will help to understand how the machines have psychologically got it's grip on our mind by watching Ka' Ching Pokie Nation.

    It is worth the fight for gamble free life and this takes getting used to. Re-learning to "enjoy" and "be happy" amid life's chaos without the added burden of gambling hangovers I can only describe as "normal" ... some days are good and others crappy in a sense much like the weather!

    stay Strong Elizabeth! You CAN do this.

    Keep posting and read as many posts as you can.

    You are not alone . what ever type of gambling you do , the end result is the same . remember that when you gamble you are not free. Choose freedom
