    Mindset shift :)

    Wed May 01, 2019 12:18 pm

    Hi all :)

    I’m 1 week free of gambling and so far shifting my mindset has set me up to be strong and beat the urge. I have so much belief that I can overcome this addiction. I think about the negatives of gambling and what positives I will be getting out of stopping this filthy habit.

    I have deleted online accounts, suspended credit cards and when it’s pay day (like today), I have transferred bulk money into my debt. I would rather my money goto debt than gambling to help get me out of this cycle. Of course I leave myself enough money to go out and do things which is transferred into a joint account with my partner. This is so we both know it’s for entertainment purposes on weekends.

    I have also kept myself accountable by sharing my story and replying to all of you wonderful people on this site. It has been a real eye opener reading people go through the same things as me, if not they’re a lot worse off than me. I’ve just realised I am finished digging a deep hole for myself and it’s time to get out.

    Keep doing what y’all are doing! You are so amazing! 😀😀
