I have to admit that I'm still a bit rocky,but I have kept 'knocking it on the head 'so I'm thrilled that from being continually broke I've managed to save £1,000 pounds.Yeah! It's not a lot of money but it's quite an achievement for me.I don't even have a lot of money each week to save anything from! Giving up my bank cards has been a blessing and gave me a breathing space.

I wish more people kept in touch with the site.It helps to keep you focussed.I haven't been on for a while,but I do check it out now and then.

Hope you're well Prokopton :-)

Keep living the good, simple

New problem!

Pretty disgusted with myself at the moment.

I did really well for a while and got my card back,but slowly allowed myself to get too confident,so it's back to the drawing board again.I have given my credit card back to my husband,for 2 months initially, and because it helped before I've come back to this site.

I'm under a lot of pressure at the moment because my husband has become very ill and I still have the threat of my cancer coming back,but although they're probably triggers,I know I can't keep using them as an excuse.It's just that when you're trying to focus on getting back on track these sort of worries get in the way.

I was always a very strong,together sort of person so getting sucked into this addiction again is humiliating and frustrating.
