My name is Simmo

This journal is inspirational. A lot of what you write makes perfect sense to me, and whilst new to these forums and early in my journey of sobriety I will take a lot of strength from your achievements.

Thanks for sharing, I hope oneday that I am able to help others in the way the the GA fellowship has already started to help me.

I'm also very lucky in the bank of mum & dad are coming to my rescue and will allow me to clear my credit card debts. That small act alone means I can re-assess my job, lower my wage demands and live a far simpler and happier life.

I've not yet started steps in any formal capacity, and I look forward to beginning as through your writing it seems almost as powerful a tool in helping understanding and aiding recovery as going to the meetings themselves.

Cheers again, keep posting.
Well done, keen inspiring the rest of us Smile

Thanks StrengthToStop, 

It gives me a great feeling that by sharing my recovery is inspiring others.  It really does make such a difference to help others, I still have thoughts about gambling, and where I would used to seek help for myself to get over these thoughts, I now reach out to newcomers to see how I can be of service to them.  Ringing another member to ask how they are doing takes me out of my own head, and the thoughts of gambling soon dissipate.  

I've very soon to go though step 5 with my sponsor, and I'm looking forward to moving forward.  It's been nearly 2 years in recovery and lots of procrastination to get to this point, but I've had someone ask me to sponsor them, and I can't do it properly until I have been through all 12, so it's given me a well needed kick up the backside to get them finished. 

Living this day as this day alone, one day at a time.

Simmo
One day at a time.  My last bet was 15/03/2016 and I hope and pray each day that it stays that way.
