I thought it would be a good idea to list things we like to do besides "gambling". I'll be adding a number of these to our "quit gambling" section for when members get a bit discouraged and want to find entertainment or activities elsewhere.

My Five things:


Playing bass guitar
Working in the yard
playing games with the kids
reading non-fiction
writing

These are just off the top of my head :p

Go to your local Hospital and see what they do.
Some places do not have a program in place but it's worth it if they do.
Thanks

playing/coaching hockey, watching boxing and jumping in the ring now and then, golf, fishing, watching football. those are the selfish things. charity work is in there somewhere but is a different kind of satisfaction....:)

1. Riding my Motorcycle/s

2. spending time and money with my kids. (all grown up now but still come round usually when they want something ... either money or tools from my garage ...which i never bloody get back.still it feels good when they do)

3. meeting up and partying with my brothers in the MC

4. meeting up and drinking then usually reminiscing with old Army pals.

5.going out and then having a good rump with my missus, although this one seems to be getting less nowdays... maybe its an age thing ...most of time we both agree to agree that a good sandwich and cup of tea is easier and less fuss before bedtime. (depends how much alchohol has been consumed).

I am finding more and more that I had rather do other things than spend my time and money gambling.

1. My grandkids/kids. I try to attend whatever they are doing or just have them for the weekend.

2. Needlework.

3. Read

4. Garden

5. Just sit and relax.
