Today more than ever I am thankful for this support group and all of those that truly understand the struggle of a gambling addiction. No matter what stage of recovery you are in your posts help me to keep perspective on where I am, where I want to be and where I will not go again! I am thankful for all the blessings in my life and the new found hope that I won't screw them up by gambling. I am thankful for 117 days gamble free and for everyone that has inspired me to keep moving forward at those times when it felt hopeless. Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving to all. Just for today, I will not gamble! Stay strong my friends.
I’ve been flying around in my head for the past couple of weeks. It’s like feeling a little bit crazy, I guess you could say. I’m okay, at least today I know I’m okay and grateful for that.Now I just feel old and silly for posting my craziness! But you know what? I’m not gambling, so I count all my crazy days in recovery as good ones.
A lot of false starts but I have to begin today. Stop shoplfting. It will unravel my life. I would risk arrest. The end of my career. A year of legal hassle as the courts are slow here. The end of my marriage. My luck will run out . I got away with begging stores for mercy a few times. I wont always be so lucky. Its a crazy form of gambling.I got to keep on top of the booze. Drink only...
