Decided to make this thread and have a little fun with it.
Post a picture that sums up how you're feeling or coping so we can SEE how you're doing.


Edit: Didn't give the explanation, did i?
Been paying off the debt regularly (parachute), but the gambling demons aren't letting go. I'm getting blown off course too easily and although i've not gambled, there's still a chance i'll get wet...

After falling off the gambling wagon (twice): £33,600 (24,000+ 9,600) - Original CC Debt: £7,885.91

Dad Gift 6k ¦ Savings & Inv Tst: £2,500
Loan 10k: £0 ¦ Dad 5.5k: £2,270 ¦ LTSB: £0 ¦ RBS: £0 ¦ Virgin £0 ¦ Egg £0

Total Owed: £2,270 (+6k) 11/08/2011

    Having a new girlfriend after the absolute rubbish 2008/2009 I had is GREAT.
    Her living 65 miles away is the only downside. But, we've got the whole weekend together so yay!

    Mostly I feel like thisstock-photo-hamster-wheel-runner-11989066.jpg
    - I've been on DFW for a year but haven't reduced my debt anywhere near as much as I would have liked

    But occasionally I turn more into this :o
