I really was a product of an upbringing where betting was attached to horse racing. A genuine interest became a little bit of a brunt on the finances but luckily has never been dire.
This 100 Day Challenge was tricky for the first couple weeks but then once weekends were reclaimed quite easy. I still watched the races and had slight urges at times but I feel this helped normalise watching races without having to bet.
This was so good for me to see what life on a Saturday is like. It truly was living!
