Welcome Scott,

Have you read the 'new to ga' link on the main ga page?........... explains about ga and how it can help?

Attending my first GA meeting was the first step...I hope you make that step when your ready..

Bet you have that real Eurphorea feeling too, I had a marriage breakup straight after going to GA for the first time, and was unsettled at work and I remember nothing that happened had any effect on me because I was so happy. I started filling the void by doing extra overtime at work and bought a blu-ray player and started buying films. I remember being so paronoid about my spare time and filling the void, I was going to buy a metal detector and go looking for places to explore in the rural area's lol, something I saw as passing any spare time I had, as it happened I got tons of extra hours at work. Its great getting gambling out of your life, sadly I have slipped a few times myself but that is through getting complacent and not putting enough effort into my recovery but getting there again. Really pleased you have gone 11 days and counting <!-- s:-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":-)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:-) -->

Be carefull. Don't bet on anything! Lol
