I have been GF for 3 days now. The biggest issue i had gambling wise was putting bets on Football. I honestly could not remember the last time i watched a match without having a bet riding on it. I watched a game yesterday for the first time since a teenager (some 20 years ago) without a bet being placed. I found myself counting the corners, noting who had shots on targets etc etc. Basically the sort of things i used to bet on.
Has anyone else found themselves doing this and have they managed to fall back in love with the game without any gambling thoughts involved?
I use to do football bets every night and play roulette every few days
I can now watch football without wanting to bet I’m on day 3 also!!! So keep focus enjoy tonight’s match I’m actually enjoying watching without being on edge
I’ve lost so much money I just want months to pass so I can be where I want to be
block yourself on things maybe get someone looks after wages cause urges will come
Thanks mate. Good work yourself. Yeah its nice to think that regardless of the outcome or what happens in the match i have kept my money safe.
All the best.
Hi mate, I can’t fully relate on the football betting as it it never really appealed to me. But at one point I felt the same mainly on Sundays I’d always sit and watch the football and bet. So would lose a small amount. However, this is just an idea to keep you GF but enjoy the football. are you a part of a Fantasy Team with friends. We are in a league of 12 no money involved and it has really helped me steer away from betting on football and I actually enjoy picking my team for the week and seeing how it does. The thrill of having a good point week is great. I even watch games like WBA v Brighton which we all know are dull. I find occupying myself with this it helps me. BUT like I said this is just a thought and works for me. I wouldn’t want it to be a trigger to get you into the betting. But it’s a great deterrent for me and let’s me enjoy the football and still get a thrill for no risk.
i want to be a part of ur games i,m intersted sir
