Planning to start 100 day challenge

Hello everyone how are we! Today I lost $2k on sports betting. I have been gambling on/off since last 12years. Lost count of total amount I gambled away during this period. I don’t smoke, don’t drink alcohol so apart from regular living expenses I barely waste money on anything. Wife tries hard to save me money wherever she can to help me out so I couldn’t tell her about my gambling habits. I tried transferring her money every month as savings just to keep money away from me but I am still lying to her to get money back from her to fund my gambling habit.she trusts me but I break her trust just because of my gambling addiction. I know all this money I am wasting today would comeback to hunt me when I needed it most. There needs to be an end to my self imposed punishment and want to get my life back. Every day I go to bed I think today is the last day and tomorrow is a new beginning. Tonight I am going to bed with the same hope, I will start my 100 day challenge from tomorrow onwards. Good luck to everyone who is thinking of starting the challenge / already started the challenge. Good night
