It is a shame that you have been at it again. I had noticed that you hadn't been posting on here so assumed you were going to meetings and things were getting better.

The thing about GA meetings is they are not a cure, going to meetings does not safeguard from anyone having a bet. They do however, give you a better chance, but only if you have an open mind and are willing to put the effort in and do what is being suggested.

On the last two pages of the GA orange book there are suggestions for members. There is an old saying "actions speak louder than words". I would you suggest to anyone that is struggling to read those two pages and put the suggestions into place in their own recovery. If anyone wants to stop gambling for good then the bare minimum is not going to cut it. The suggestions made in GA are not just for a chosen few they are for everyone.
