I need help
Hello John,

Today is Sunday. Please read all my reply and try to keep an open mind. Yes the bookies are open (they didn't use to be when I gambled but there you go, this is progress <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> ). Another institution opens its doors today and welcomes visitors and regulars alike. You can sing (dance even at some) meet people, have a coffee at most and there's no bandit/roulette/space invader in sight. Having filled in your morning with no gambling there is a meeting in Sheffield at 7.30 this very evening - look forward to going and make this your target for today. There is no substitute for meetings. If you don't get to read this until Monday, no problem, fill your day in as best you can - work, library, walk in the park whatever and then get to a meeting in the evening.

Within Yorkshire as a whole, there are meetings six nights a week. Sheffield has a daytime meeting on a Friday. West Yorkshire has meetings four nights a week Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. All are accessible by public transport if you have no "wheels". From the "Home" page click "Meetings" then "North East" then select from the drop down list the town or city you wish to visit the meeting in. Clicking on the blue writing gives you a map on how to get there and all from the comfort of your desk (is this progress <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) --> - I found GA through a poster displayed in the citizens advice bureau waiting area and telephoned the number given for directions).

Well hope this is helpful John. Get yourself to a meeting as soon as you can and see how GA can help you.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling. There are no dues or fees, we are self supporting through our own contributions. GA is not affiliated with any sect, demonination institution or politics, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stop our gambling and help other compulsive gamblers to do the same.

Also, I may go to church, but it doesn't mean that you have to.

Kind regards
