Morning Mikey,

Day Two today.

Not gambling on day one is a very good start.

Attendance at Gamblers Anonymous (GA) meetings would be another step forward. Click on the "home" page, then click "meetings". GA meetings take place across the United Kingdom at various times and places, over the full seven days in a week.

Take the time to find your nearest meeting and then make it a priority in your life to attend. Stay away from the first bet one day at a time.

Yours in GA unity

First step admission...Today is a better day and you will not solve all your life problems in one Go.

It takes diligence day by day, resistence to cast urges aside and I hope through GA you see the light and take the path i took.

The choice is albeit yours.
