Hi @Jamus, firstly I'd like to say hello and secondly well done for going the 188 days gamble free. Most of us have slipped up on our way to quitting. I lasted 6 months GF on my first attempt, then continued gambling again for 2 or 3 years....Doh..
Just remember how crap it makes you feel and aim not to do it to yourself again. You have shown that you have great willpower, treat it as a lesson in letting your guard down and re-arm yourself with your tools of distraction :cool:

Cheers, Lee

Hi guys
I'm still around, just thought I would check in, I haven't gambled again, just the one slip up, which I'm still ashamed of. I've wanted to go gambling plenty if times but luckily have had the will power not to.

All the best
Jamus

Good on you @Jamus
Great to hear you are still doing well, you should be really proud of yourself!
Well done, thanks a bunch for the inspiration.
