    Day 3 - craving hard

    Sun Jan 06, 2019 5:48 am

    Its day 3 and the cravings are hitting me. Spend yesterday eating packets of Tim Tams. Searched hard and found the doco Ka-Ching Pokie Nation what an eye opener, shared it with my brother who is also a problem gambler. Helped us both getting some true awareness I think. Watching videos online of problem gambling which is also helping :-)

    Hi @kez

    Ka-Ching is sch a great doco to watch, I'm glad you got something from it! It really helps you to understand and put things into perspective.
    Have you got a list of things you can do to distract yourself when those urges come?
    It will get easier with time- the more times you don't give in to those urges, the strong you will become and the less the urges will appear.

    Hey Kez,

    How are you going? Hope you are pushing hard and 2019 is going your way.

    I saw some snipers of pokie nation online, but it only directed me to where you can pay to watch it, is there somewhere it can be watched for free?
