Day Eighty – Losing My Religion (REM) & Darren Brown

I’ve not been disciplined in writing this blog as for one reason I’ve been too busy living and thankfully managing to get my finances back in order since I gambled so much away before I started this blog. But in line with the 12 steps I must say my name is Michael Gamble (yes, a…

Day 35 – Not Perfect (Tim Minchin)

I guess today is Monday as it’s just followed Sunday and honestly, I’m at fault apologise as I haven’t written a blog for something like 20 days now (as if anyone is reading)  😉 But in the words, I am proud of it is now 35 days and I haven’t gambled once and it’s kind…

Day 14 – A Day for Resting

Well another very happy day without gambling 🙂 I’m feeling really good and have given myself a day off. However this is just for the record as a blog to indicate one more day getting free of my addiction. It’ll be good to keep Elvis Costello as the featured blog. He deserves it 🙂 Link

Day 13 – Oliver’s Amy (Elvis Costello – Declan MacManus)

Day 10 Working Class Hero (John Lennon)

Day Nine – Teenage Kicks

Actually this is not about the song, which is a classic in its own right, but simply a note to say that this is day 9 without gambling, the sun is shining and life is good. I won’t be writing anything as the next blog will be very important and I’m composing it now in…
