    6 months I made it !!!

    Tue Mar 26, 2019 6:57 pm

    Well today it is 6 months since I have gambled and it all started here , so if anyone is reading this post and thinking about giving up gambling this is the right place to come !! So much support from everyone along the way you actually feel like you can overcome this terrible demon . I can’t say it has been easy and still have my best friend holding on to my bank cards and getting regular counselling but it’s starting to get a little better , the urges come and go and I can control myself even if it means staying home for the day but you do what you need to do to stay away but life is a lot less stressful now that I don’t have the heavy weight of gambling on me .
    So good luck all and keep reading you will certainly pick up some tips from everyone along the way .
