Nope , that was my misreading . I didn't see it as " gambling-clean " , I thought you meant to say " I am not gambling ...clean since etc. , etc . "

My mistake . Congratulations too on your gamble-free time !

I've found that the urges will always be lurking and honestly , in my first year of recovery , they came on quite suddenly and at unexpected times . I found it best to accept that the addiction will always keep trying to come back to life and I did start to feel a great deal of satisfaction in telling it " NO " .

Even after 5 years , I still sometimes get thoughts about gambling for no reason at all . I laugh at them now and they vanish . This will happen for you too . Keep going !

Hi All,

23 days free of gambling.
I feel good but had the urge to look up football and tennis results, something I did daily for the last 3 years.
Maybe 'urge' isn't the right word, it is/was a habit.

Also had some weird dreams in the first two weeks.
Can't recall them but had a strange feeling when I woke up.

Bitcoin Gambler, I also took out two personal loans. Not to gamble with but to use it for food, rent.. because I blew my whole pay.. month after month after month.
Also a credit card I maxed out but paying it down fast, so I am able tot close it down by the beginning of march.

Started to work out Again, keeps me focused. ✌

Have a Nice day!

151 days of not gambling.

Went back through my old posts. In 2015 I reached ~240 days of not gambling before relapsing after a heartbreak.

Luckily, I am 5 years older now, I've been in therapy for months. I've been through another heartbreak, I've had more ups and downs then I can count in 2019, but none of them made me want to relapse again. I'm confident now that I have the tools to cope whatever life throws my way.

Bravo Bitcoin !

You have fought this disease brilliantly and you should be so proud of yourself . I know that when I reached the point of clarity about my addiction and the mechanics of its compulsions , I truly felt that it had no power over me anymore . That feeling has become a certainty now and there is no going back .
May it be so for you too .

Great update Yahoo!

Only 3 more months before you hit a year. Just keep doing what you have been doing so far and those weeks and months will fly by.

Thanks Rising
The only strategy that worked for me is that I had to make myself believe that the money that I lost is gone and it can never come back. As soon as I accepted that I was sorted.
