Envious of your achievement! I was a member here before you took the step to becoming clean.

I however have not been as successful. I am not going to say hopefully this time or maybe this time because that leaves the option wide open.

No more gambling ever again. Nothing more nothing less.

Congratulations Pamela 👍

Thanks Andy..I know it's a hard thing to do and I guess I was lucky as I never put another dollar in a machine once I made the call to the helpline..It wasn't always easy but I never gave in or up..be strong and determined and focus on getting through one day at a time..
You can do this

Today I gave another performance with my Drama Group for a group of counsellors..it makes me very proud to be able to tell our stories in such a powerful form..As I fast approach my 4 years of being gamble free..I realise how lucky I am to have gotten off that merrygoround.I say it often to those that struggle..don't give up don't be discouraged..keep trying ..life is good
One day at a time ..

Even though it has been awhile since I stopped gambling..I still find delight in being able to put petrol in my car when I want to..to go shopping and be able to buy what I want without scrimping..to be able to go out for a meal or to go to the movies..such simple pleasures but things I missed out on for many many years.I appreciate the small things in life but most of all I appreciate the freedom of being gamble free..I have found a different playground...
So for all of you who are struggling..don't give up the good fight..life is good being gamble free
