@Mongoose you have taken the first step, you are here with all of us because we all cannot control our gambling, I believe talking about it and giving your commitment to the 100 days challenge is a step in the right direction, 1 day, 1 hour at a time, be proud to mark those days off, pull that other person out of yourself, that person whom wants to save and lead a happier life, come onboard and start counting days mate, you can do it.

Hey @Mongoose, sorry to hear that. Time to realign and take stock. Do you need to add some extra barriers? Is it time to try something you haven't already? I recently took the next step to exclude myself from gambling venues - a step i avoided for ages but decided I had to because that was the next level barrier for me. The forum is good but I slipped a couple of times during the challenge so amped it up. Since doing it my mind has been much more at rest - for me if its unavailable the urges are manageable.

Self exclusion is a good place to start.
