    Hey guys, thanks for the support and encouragement.. ill check out the 100 day challenge..
    Today is day 4 and I self excluded from my local for 12 months.. ive had the forms filled out for 2 days but it took me a bit to work up the courage to go and do it.. im hoping it will help a little bit - especially when I'm not feeling strong..

    Hi @RMac,

    Welcome to the forums! Wow, congratulations on the self-exclusion! That's a huge step, how are you feeling?

    Some of the things you can do is plan activities in advance to when you would usually go to the venues. What sort of activities can you think of to do instead?
