It's certainly not part of the recovery progress I wish to learn about.

The most natural thing for a compulsive gambler to do is gamble, so when someone has a 'lapse' I wouldn't exactly call it failure. Abstaining from gambling for any period is a difficult task for most if they have been in action for a long time.

The fact is that the majority of people in GA have 'lapsed' at least once. Very few get it the first time round.

After being in recovery for such a long period I am sure you know all this already.
