    Hey @Anita44,

    Your partner sounds like a very wise person, and a very positive influence in your life. That makes two of us working today, LOL. :D But yes, working is definitely a great way to keep your mind off other things. :cool:

    Hi @Anita44 ,

    Definitely planning trips is great, to try and focus on not spending the money on gambling.
    You’re very lucky you have support with your husband. I am on my own,!however I have called the hotline a bit and have booked in counselling sessions.

    I work a lot so keeping busy is good to distract the brain. However I got some time of coming soon, a little worried about that, not so much gambling as i have put things in place like Gamban and removal of cards. I am more worried about the mind, slipping me into a dark depression. But I’ll try and not let that happen.

    okay everyone! it's the time of the week where we share the 3 things we're looking forward to!

    I'm in Victoria so one thing I'm looking forward to is the end of lock down, so I can see my family who live regionally.

    I'm looking forward to a nice sunny day so I can go for a walk with my friend!

    I'm looking forward to buying some flowers for my room because they make me happy! I know that's a bit sappy, but plants make me really happy!

    @Jimap @Anita44 @Menz199 @Kevcollingwood @Ali1 @loraineie69 @KAG @Lovely Cat Lady @yep123

    What are you guys looking forward to at the moment? I'd love to hear anything, no matter how big or small :o

    hello everyone! It's saturday, so we're back thinking of 3 things to look forward ro!

    Remember these can be short term or long term goals, occasions, catch ups! Anything that you're looking forward to

    I'm looking forward to starting back at uni this week and meeting new people in classes

    I'm excited to have some good weather and be able to go for some runs! I really need to get back into exercise, a good routine is so important

    Seeing my dad for his birthday. We weren't able to see each other last year so I'm really looking forward to being able to spend some quality time with him!
