    Wahoo 57 days - 3 days shy of two months WAHOO!

    Dinner was great, ended up going somewhere else for dessert, it was good.

    Another crazy week of work, tell myself that although crazy and tiring it gives me the opportunity to pay for my uni books as well as feel really good, knowing my money is going towards normal things and not gambling.
    How I ever survived financially living a life of gambling I will never understand.

    Temptation city!! I overspent my money and it's given me guilty feelings, same feelings l feel when l am stressed about $$$ and end up gambling. On my way to the hairdressers l talked myself into going gambling, l was round the corner of venue and had already decided how much l was going to play etc.. the feelings were so strong and l knew l couldn't beat them..... yet somehow l did, l did not stop l made it to the hairdressers and after l pay l wont have much money left.

    Going out tonight & will be parking at crown, l have no $$ to gamble & l am taking my friend home so l am all good.

    MADE it through...tomorrow is pay day, will be careful & make sure l do not give in to urges. So glad lived to be clean for another day.

    Hey,

    Quick update, still clean yeah yeah and so proud of myself for not giving into temptation. Today is day 64, made it to another small milestone (two months).

    Over halfway to my first 100 days and given that I have had two massive days of temptation, feeling so much strong and the possibility of hitting the 100 day mark is possible.

    Hi Izzy,

    Congrats on being able to resist the temptation.

    I love how the longer you have been without gambling, the stronger you are starting to feel. Imagine how good you will feel when you reach 100 days :)

    Hi everyone,

    Uni is back on and it is week two and I am drowning in coursework. If I am not posting, it is because I am just super busy with uni and focusing primarily on that.

    Stay clean and keep strong.
