Hello Shanky and rest of friends,

I must say, that this thread was/is probably the one that gets more atention from me. Your story was so powerful, and the way you write, makes really feel what you feel.

While in the beggining, everybody who could read it, would feel anguish, for you escalating problems, and tough decisions you would have to make...and sometimes reading you had relapsed, or increased your debt was really hard on everyone here.
But now, we can actually see you smile! And, speaking for myself, I smile too! I am very happy with for you. I am very pleased to see you achieving really cool milestones.

Congrats Shanky! Keep up the good work!

Thank you NSR, Timehealsall and lookforward for the appreciation and motivating me!!!

As promised, I have still not disappointed you!!! I have successfully completed 6 months and few days already and enjoying normal life. Last week I bought my brand new BMW X1 8) 8) 8) :lol: :lol: Now in winters my son will not walk in cold :) :) This feeling is so relaxing!!!

Life is good and normal!!! No thoughts about the stupidity ... I will keep you updated.

All those who are still struggling or are in a situation where I was earlier, please please please quit today... everything will be ok.. Just quit and by time you will see everything will start falling in place.

6 months earlier if someone would have told me that you will not have anyone calling you for money and you will have your own new BMW... I would have laughed on this face... but it happened!!! Trust me ... Time is very powerful, give it a chance to show its power.

I wish you good health during this tough time... All the best!

Hi Shanky,

Reading your postings here from start till present has inspired me in my current recovery.
It is Day 6 of GF for me.

I was into online betting recently...sport casino.I did make before, save some of my winning, payouff some debt, but then the losing cycle came, and you all know the story.

I didn't hit rock bottom, but my sober senses came and I know my disease is always there, the addiction disease in my mind.

I have seen for myself the transformation in your life, and it motivates me to quit for good forever. Thank you very much for posting here, for sharing your life story with others.
And also many thanks to the admin and regulars here that keep motivating us to quit.
