Hi Pamela,

Sherpa09 here (one of the facilitators on the forum). Well done on being gambling free over the past 3 years! It's fantastic to see the amount of good you are putting back into the community. Keep up the fantastic work :)
Also really inspired to see other people in this forum who are following in Pamela's footsteps and beyond, you're all awesome!

I was just recently interstate on holiday and we had a very early start one morning and it really saddened me to see on a cold wet morning.people lining up outside a pokie venue waiting for it to open at 0630..
I am so glad that these machines do not dictate my life anymore..
For all of you who are struggling,don't give up the strong and say no to gambling today

Well done Pam. I clicked over 9 weeks last Friday gamble free. This Friday will be 10 weeks. 10 weeks is the most I have been gamble free before, so I will surpass this after Friday. I finally feel after all the times I have fell off the wagon this will finally be that last time I give up. Life is so much better without gambling.

Hi everyone..I havent posted for awhile but thought I would share a poem I wrote..

Come with us and have some fun,
Look at all the coins we've won

I wouldnt mind to have a play
You cant get hooked I heard them say

I put my money in the slot
I didn't win, I lost the lot

I wouldn't mind to try again
I'll only play them now and then

It wasnt long and I was hooked
I didn't care how sad I looked

I gave them everything thing I had
Knowing they were really bad

But I had heard of all the riches
To be gotten from these bitches

So I'd sit and play and play
And for hours I would stay

Waiting for that great big win
For my luck to change within

But it never came you see
Coz they were f#####g playing me

But something made me see the light
And they put up a real good fight

Our friendship came to a timely end
My heart my soul began to mend

It wasn't easy I must admit
And I got into heaps of s##t

But from me you'll get no more
It's come to the end..mechanical hoar

Giving up gambling was the best thing I ever did so please don't give up if you are struggling..keep pushing on and become the victor
Good luck

pamby this is an amazing poem - thank you very much for sharing it with the community!
I'm sure many people can relate, and find your strength very inspiring!

I've just realised - is it possible that you used to have the username 'pamela'?
Let me know if you've lost access to that account - I can help you gain access, or perhaps if you'd like to change your username on this account to that name so people know it's still you and can read your journey.
No pressure, but if you do want help with anything let me know :)
