the first day on a long road
#1
Welcome m,

Great honest post...

You say you've read some of the other posts...have you checked out any of the posts on the main GA page - the New to GA or the meetings list?

Keep in touch M...
The good thing about GA for me is there is always so much hope in meetings and the recovery program...
Hope you can get there...
In recovery...

Thanks for the update...

Management of the problem is useful for me, but its no substitute to dealing with the issue - and that's compulsive gambling...

The good thing about GA meetings Matt is they are so supportive as well as being non judgmental..after all we've all been in the gambling situation ourselves...

Keep being positive though...6 days is fabulous....Keep appreciating the day Matt...

Let us know how ur GA meetings as going?

In unity

I found it by looking online... address is accurate...

Maybe have a look for it how I did...search for the Friends Meeting House in Ipswich online... ?

Maybe give yourself plenty of time to find the place next week or do a dry run before then?

Up to you M, but i'd stick with plan a...

All the best

Welcome back Matt,

This chat room was set up by GA to help new members get to the help they need. GA meetings and more specifically the GA recovery program offered me hope of a new life....

Ultimately though I ask myself the same question each day...To what lengths am I willing to go to recover from this addiction?

I wish you the best in your decision Matt...

Keep in touch...

Smartie
