Moving along!

Back to journaling - - I am feeling pretty good right now and keeping my mind on a positive track.  I've wandered all over mentally in the last few days (let's face it - there's a lot more time on your hands) and am able to think about details from the past when I was gambling (38 days ago). :] :] and NOT have an urge to go to the casino.  That's kind of big for me, because before when I even thought about the winning times (if you will) when I optimistically thought I could walk away with a lot of cash - I would be down the road in my car with my heart racing. So - progress. I just went to the Women helping Women site and read a lot of comments and reviews of the book Gripped by Gambling.  I can't wait to buy it - I'm going on line to Amazon. com tomorrow to see if I can get it.  The author sounds like she has quite an interesting story to tell and has helped many women with this addiction, so I'm excited about getting into it. That's all for right now - going to AZ this weekend so may not be writing too much but ya never know.Hugs to everyone,Smokeygirl

I see Gripped by Gambling is on sale at Amazon and for a used copy for 7.49 that\'s pretty good. I always buy used because I end up giving them away after I read them. hugs barb

Hi there...when i first started trying to stop the madness of gambling, I read Gripped by Gambling. I loved the story. It was one of the few books about gambling that struck a chord with me. I think you\'ll enjoy it (if we can use that term about a book about gambling) lol. I was catching up on posts; I always like your entries; I always identify with your words. I\'ve been all over mentally too. Still trying to adjust to my move and struggle with wanting to gamble and the numerous issues that go along with the struggle. Glad you\'re here, have a good week..
hugs, Brigette
