    I can tell you that I do not and never have had daily urges. It just hits me out of the blue every 3 weeks or so - so please be eternally vigilant. Treat every day as if it is Day 1. Be careful.Having said that you are going very well! Good luck

    Good point Loui, I could go weeks before and then suddenly go on a real binge, but back then I always figured I'd go back one day, now I am determined to stay away.

    Have been near pokies a few times now, lots of opportunities with cash in my wallet, and so far have been easily able to walk away, hope it keeps up!

    hi all.

    about 4 days before i fly back to visit family in america.

    as for gambling over there, actually never did anything but bingo there and that was over 25 years ago.

    as for the current over there i would have to drive over 4 hours . stuff that.

    to much other stuff to do anyway.

    i currently have over 7100 visits to this forum/site lol...i think it adds around 50 every time i log in.

    think i am around 105 days or so.

    say no to the gambling monkey friends.....:crazy:
