    Gonna go a week without gambling....maybe..

    So some of you guys may remember that I got married over the winter. Well due to family obligations and scheduling, we decided to have our honeymoon and wedding reception at the end of May. The reception is May 28th and honeymoon in the carribean starts the 29th.

    Gonna try and go the entire week without placing a bet. So much stuff to do, and I want to prove to myself that I dont need my cellphone in my hand or laptop on me at all times. (of course I am going to take it all with me, in case I break down.) I feel like I have a 32% chance of success....

    Whats the longest you shmoe's have gone without gambling? This would potentially be my longest streakin about 5 years.

    Day three is my big concern too. Day one will be spent flying, checking in, excitement, drinking, porking. Day two will probably be a lot of the same. Day 3 will be the first day where we will be comfortable down there and have time to kind of relax. That's when things could get dicey.

    I am not trying to fight it, I am just not sure I will have time. Like I said, I expect failure though.

    Good luck man. I made it two full days last week, but I pretty much had the cold sweats by the time I got back to my keyboard.

    On day 3 the vacation frigging will slow down, the wifey will want to go shopping and you will get bored. you will be placing bets at dinner.

    Whats the longest you shmoe's have gone without gambling? This would potentially be my longest streakin about 5 years.

    Betting on your honeymoon definitely makes you a full blown compulsive gambler
    Plenty of time to gamble in your life
    WV for once in your life go 7 days without gambling
    Common now
