    Hey Lee,

    That's fantastic news. How quickly our thought processes change once we have some distance from our gambling past. The fact you were able to stop, think and see the consequences of your actions just goes to show how far you have come.

    Enjoy the beer. :D :D :D :D

    Hi All,

    Today is the 25th week in a row that I have started my weekend by not gambling.

    I used to throw away most if not all of my hard earned cash, mindlessly pressing buttons and feeding note after note in until I ran out or ran out of time...
    NO MORE!!!

    If I had unrestricted access to my money I dare say I'd still be a zombie living week to week craving to lose my money at the first possible chance.
    As I STILL crave to gamble deep down, but I know that I can't enjoy just a flutter from time to time. I need to play to extinction as that is how the pokies programmed me to function.
    ONCE I START I CAN'T STOP....EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE ELSE TAKES A BACK SEAT.

    If you are like me and can't gamble responsibly, wise up and steer clear of gambling for good.

    Try and give yourself the reward of a great gamble free weekend instead.
    Take care all and keep strong.
    Cheers, Lee
