Robert, you should meet Nathan.

Oh crap! I think you just missed her when you signed up, she's on vacation.

Well, that was easier than I thought it was going to be.

I'm not sure if I have a lot of takeaways from this past month. I didn't have a big revelation. I found other things to do with my time, and it was fine.

Sorry for such a boring end to the thread.



more importantly what did it do for your relationship?

We definitely didn't fight about money. I didn't spend any money for a month, so there was nothing for her to be mad at me about.

But when I mentioned that no gamble January was over, she was not happy.

It really was more about me doing it for myself more than anything. I think it's important to know that you have control over your own actions.

It's how God made them ... related to the "yes dear, you were right dear" syndrome. They want to change you, it's what happens when given two X chromosomes. You are not to leave the toilet seat up and in fact if you give in to everything as you are instructed you will be sitting on that seat to pee too one day.

Somewhere deep inside they do also know if they get complete control they will be miserable with it. That is, the ones you can stay married to anyway realize it... the ones that will keep going till they lord over you completely, you gotta say goodbye.
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Do you mean live stream the birth?

Please, for the love of God, please, just don't.


But if you don't give a frick (excuse my profanity), then sign up for a twitch.tv account and stream it on IRL streams, about as real as it gets.

Make a monthly budget which includes an amount for you for gambling. Then do as you wish with the bankroll. Don't bother telling her you won or lost.

My opinion is why give up an addiction if it isn't hurting you or anybody else? In other words, addictions are not necessarily bad. I'm somewhat of a fitness buff but have met people I think are addicted to it. Goes to show you can be addicted to good things.

My layman's opinion is I don't see a problem with the gambling. If the question is can you make it 30 days, my answer is who cares as long as you are gambling in moderation.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

The last baby, I stayed up all night posting on here because there was nothing else to do. That's what I mean by live blog.

I work with some fitness people. They can hurt themselves by working out too much.

I agree about your addiction point. I just think the hard part is defining "moderation"
