If I remember correctly there was about 570 members in our group when I joined now about 620. There are some members who are longtime gambling free but a lot of the few days to a few months...got to thinking about that and realized that when you first start out on this journey of stopping gambling that we need a lot of support and hand holding...Not that that is bad because without support it is beyond tough to walk this road. I am thankful for everyone who has held my hand and gave me support when I needed it most...still do...To all who post and share a big thank you...If you need a helping hand, hold it out by sharing your story and almost assuredly someone or many someone's will be there for you. Usually a gambling addiction is a lonely road and the further you walk that road the more self centered you become until it is just the bet and you...But when you realize how terrible that lonely path has become and choose to try to pull yourself out of the muck...we almost always need help, usually we find the only people who understand where we are and how to get out, are those who have also walked the lonely road and been helped themselves....So all that being said If you have succeded in beating this cruel addiction, don't leave us behind who are just getting our feet under us...We need and are thankful for all the insights you can share...REMEMBER when....Ain't going to gamble today and It is just one day at a time
Rock bottom is good solid ground, and a dead end street is just a place to turn around. ~Buddy Buie and J.R. CobbThis is today's Daily Strength affirmation, I found it quite inspiring and thought provoking.
felt like gambling today! Haven’t placed a bet in 7 months,instead of gambling which I know is a complete waste of time!! Even if I win I just gamble more and eventually lose it all and even more of own money!!So instead I post here and read other posts. Be strong people it can be over come,one day at a time
