Lost, desperate without hope.
#1
Yes...Yes...and No...

As you're discovering still gambling addiction can be very devious...
My addiction also challenges me daily and I need to keep working many of the strategies that keep me away...
Yes its tiring...annoyingly so but the alternative is me continuing to get worse...

that's my reality...

In your therapy I see you are trying to be honest and that's positive...GA offers so much help and what I find frustrating is when I hear people say 'I've tried GA and it didn't work' when your quite open and admit you haven't managed to work it all fully yet...

I wish I could say every group in GA is as good as the next....but in my experience that's not the case...BUT there is help out there when you keep looking...

Couple of useful strategies from my experience....
Get involved within the fellowship....It really does make a difference...Group roles, regional activities, helping out, etc...
Working the steps....Firstly get a sponsor...perhaps there isn't anyone suitable in your home meeting - getting to other meetings will help with that...
Anything sound useful there??
