hi Martin,

Welcome to the GA forum...

If you've already read the site, you'll probably have an idea that GA has no opinions on outside issues....

I know I can only work on myself as a person and the GA recovery program is a great tool that I can use on a daily basis to help me with this task.

I received this gift the first time I entered the GA recovery room, but I need to put the work in daily... Like yourself i stopped attending for a period of time and surprise surprise....I returned to gambling..

Every time I've tried to stop on my own I've failed...but with GA and the recovery program in my life, I feel stronger, more supported and empowered...

Up to you Martin, but I don't regret going back to meetings....
Wish you the best
Smartie
