first time I have posted on here but maybe speaking with like minded people might get me over this bump in the road.

i am 58 days gamble free today and i would say just over the last week i have become what I would describe as flat and distant, I am always the life and soul of the party but I have a real lack of energy and feeling a lot more tired than normal.

i know i have heard people say this before but i have been an addict for 12 years and it feels like i have been in prison with a set regime for that period and now i have been released and don’t know how to cope with the freedom. 

just wondering if anyone else went through this around this 60 day mark i have joined the gym this week i feel great at work but when i come home on an evening or on a weekend i am so irratated and distant i hate the free time and i end up arguing with my partner almost everyday for nothing. I really feel for her having to put up with this but i can’t seem to shift this way i am feeling. She has control of my finances which I am so thankful for but I feel if I still had access to my money would have relapsed this week just so I could feel something.
