Just so you know

When I read back on these posts I can see how ridiculous they can be, I am aware of it but I'm trying to demonstrate the thought process of an addict as he tries to rationalise, blame others and abdicate responsibility. I want to put it in writing so, when I read back I will spot the warning signs as I start to try to find excuses to gamble again, as demonstrated in previous posts.

Nadir to Summit

Yesterday was crap, today was one of the best days of my life, my eldest achieved her dream. So happy for her.

My name is Paddy, I'm a compulsive gambler, I have not had a bet today or since my last post and today, I'm the proudest man in Ireland.

  1. This is a great blog Paddy, love reading your updates and how you are moving into a new era.

    I have a strange betting addiction, i bet in the winter and lose every year. In the summer i have a hobby which means i never think about gambling.

    It seems like when I do somehting i must give it my everything and totally immerse myself in it.

    Fortunately it hasnt caused any debt problems although i have lost a few thousand.

    This winter will be the first time i dont switch back to the gamlbing. I have turned my summer passion, cricket, into a full time passion by starting up my own small scale business. It gives me a real buzz that replaces the gambling.
