A New start

Well, it has been a long time since I've been on DS and right now I thought I'd put an Avitar on instead of my kitties - just for a change - - -and a new start!I've been on a roller coaster ride in the last 6 months or so and I'd like to make a fresh start. I miss my friends on here and realize yet AGAIN that I have to get back on a positive track.  You can't straddle the fence with this addiction and I think that is what I was trying to do - it's a total commitment and I guess for a while I thought I was ready, but I wasn't; I was kidding myself.  Anyway, I'm back.  One day at a time... I'm pretty distressed with myself right now and it's hard to say I like the me I have been. Time for CHANGE.Hello to everyone & hope you're all doing well - - - Smokeygirl

Welcome Back!!!!!! You can do this. I know how hard this addiction is to stop, I\'ve been a it for a while. I do know the difference in my life stopping gambling has made. It\'s so much better. I\'ve been gamble free for three months. I also tried to straddle the fence for a while but it doesn\'t work, I learned the hard way. You can do it!!!!!!!

Welcome back from me as well!!! I had to make a lot of attempts at \"controlled gambling\" before I gave and realized I just can\'t do that.....you are not alone with trying the old fence straddling routine!

Glad you\'re back, my sistah.....Love ya, Dianne
