hi all,my name is red,went to a meeting last night,first in about six weeks,i started gambling again.the meeting was brilliant and i can now see a way forward..its so true meetings make it.thankyou to all those good people,who listen dont judge,and give you the strengh to carry on a normal life..looking forward to next week.
I went to my first meeting this week also. I agree it allowed me to see the way forward also and made me realise it is something i should have done years ago instead of kidding myself that it is somthing that i could deal with myself. I am looking forward to my nxt weeks meeting and will definately be attending.
Hi Red
Great to hear that you made it back to the meetings. And I agree with Big Dave, it does take a lot of guts to get back to a GA meeting having relapsed. However, those compulsive gamblers who have been a long time in the Fellowship without having slipped are few and far between. It's a baffling and insidious addiction. Moreover, there is no first amongst equals in GA. We are all addicts and never safe. All I keep doing, after having been off for a long time is to keep putting the bet off for another day. It seems to work. I think that seems to be the key: keep it in the day. I can do something for 12 hours that would appal me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime. So, I hope that you can get to the next meeting as soon as possible and put off the bet for another day.
thankyou for all your kind positive words, im living the life of one day at a time, meeting tomorrow , small steps big improvement. thanks everyone red <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
