Got stressed and angry on Wednesday night and instead of handling it like a non-gambler, I reacted by gambling. Just had to lose all the money, even when up; had to keep on going till it had all gone. Feel guilty how I handled my emotions, but the release felt good in the very short term only. Now need to get my head back in the game and start again. The addiction of gambling will grab onto any weakness to mentally make you feel like gambling; the Loss of money I suffered didn’t help with the stress and anger, just made feel worse.

There’s life out there! … nice one Trevor, realise it’s not easy to put blocks/self exclusions in place for you guys that go to the arcades/casinos.

Just popped in to wish everyone a Happy Easter weekend!

Until Sunday ….

Still gambling on and off, but just now going through a good patch. Cant undo the rubbish ive shoved onto the family due to the addiction, but can try and change the future.

It’s not easy, only yesterday I found myself lookin’ at the runners in Saturday’s Scottish Grand National. Nearly signed up to a telephone betting company so I could place a couple of bets. Just managed to stop myself although it’s been playing on my mind.

Endless battle ….

I sometimes pay an occasional visit to Gamcare, it dont know if its me but it feels like that place is fast loosing it’s way.

Rethink on the other hand works on three principles ..

1. Honesty.

2. A genuine desire to become gamble free

And

3. A good work ethic to achieving that goal.

No half heartened measures here!

Driving on to success ……

So if you have a genuine desire to become gamble free, jump on board, all welcome!

It would be great to hear from you.

In the meantime, all the very best.

100 days from now and I would have been celebrating one year gf. However I did have one small blip around day 200.

That’s no big deal, 9 and a half weeks from now and it will be a whole year when I haven’t lost a single penny to gambling so fingers crossed I can hold out! (I stopped gambling in mid July to protect my June pay)

Just writing this to spurn me on.

No point in wishing anyone well, nobody worth bothering about. Far better things to do with my time.

Until Sunday night check in …

Seriously I hope you’re all doing well.

I’m not going to lie, without Gamstop I would still be in the mire . I would urge anyone who is struggling with an online gambling addiction to sign up, I’ve never regretted it, not once.

I still struggle with trying to stay away from lotto kiosks. Maybe folk think you can’t do too much financial damage buying scratchcards/lotto tickets but believe me you can. It doesn’t take long to find 10 lotto terminals in an average sized town and spend 100 pounds at each one. 10 ten pound scratchcards and thats 100 pounds gone in the blink of an eye.

Anyway, so far so good but it’s a constant battle.

I hope the new rules in place with regard to the fobts have made things more bearable for those of you who have struggled.

I do think about the guys who have had trouble staying away from the arcades /casinos, I hope you’ve found something that works for you.

I dont know if I should be mentioning this but I still find myself playing the ‘fun’ (pretend) slots. I dont know why but for some bizzare reason I find it enjoyable and relaxing. I’m inclined to play the games I used to play for real. WTF is that all about?!!!

Life isn’t very exciting .. feels like work … chores … work … . I haven’t treated myself in such a long time (bar the bargain pair of boots!) Christmas was non-existent, Easter will be the same but I’m hoping if I can hang in there for the next 10 weeks , make it to the year, it will have been worth the sacrifice.

All the very best, wishing you all a good weekend.

Until Sunday check- in …..

Joanne
