    Osher's Günsberg "One day at a time"

    Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:03 pm

    Just saw this piece about Osher Günsberg which I thought reflects what we often talk about on here - that for many, it can be best to take change one day at a time.

    While Osher is talking about his relationship with alcohol, this is easily correlated with gambling behaviour change.

    He says:
    “I remember at one point, one of the people helping me through it said all you have to do is just get to 10 o’clock tonight when your head hits the pillow without having a drink and you’ll be fine. So I got to 10 o’clock that night and put my head on the pillow and went, ‘well, there you go, I did it. It was hard, but I did it.’ The next day was just a tiny bit easier and the next day a tiny bit easier than that.”

    “Sometimes it got smaller and I made the decision not to drink that hour.”
