I am regularly attend GA meetings, and i get fed up with the attitude of people focusing on what you can't do rather than what you can do. All i tend to hear is don't buy newspapers, don,t carry money don,t pass bookies take an alternative route, i sometimes wonder what type of recovery program some of these GA members are on and how sad they are, as members of GA are we exoected to build a nuclear bunker and go and hide away, living without electricity incase we switch on tthe internet, surely recovery is about growing strong , and coping with the real world, gambling ain't going away simply because i have stopped. I carry money, read newspapers go on the internet got ( Gambloc) on i might add, i don,t bye pass a shop simply because they sell lottery tickets. I get up in the morning and think of the good things i have got going for me, and not what i have not going for me and if i can stay focused on the positives i can live my life One Day at a Time without fear and insecurity. Remember this is just my opinion. Peace Serenity and Love
