A Quick update...

Just checking in - it's always great to see what everyone has been up to.  I jumped back on track, staying GF since the last time and I'm back in the right mode again to continue staying away from gambling.  I'm on vacation right now and I've been reading (about half way through) the book Gripped by Gambling where Marilyn Lancelot embezzeled about $300k from the company she worked at.  I'm really enjoying reading about her journey and I would recommend it to others.  The innocent way it started and the disaster it all led to - very inspiring.  We have been enjoying the week, doing a little golfing, some eating out, some cooking in to save $$ and will visit family for the next few days.  I really needed the time away.  There are NO casinos even remotely close to this location and I'm very happy about that - no temptations.  The urges are not really there right now and I'm back to where I was mentally and emotionally when I was GF for the four months.  Thank goodness - there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Hope all is well with everyone - sending good wishes and hugs,
Smokeygirl

Hi girl, so nice of you to think of us while you are on vacation. I am glad you are not thinking of the monster and having a good time. My urges left me in my second month but everyone is different. hugs barb
