I'M WILLING TO HELP GENUINE PEOPLE IN RECOVERY.
#1
Hello.

Well done on 10 years. It's quite an achievement. What aspect of the GA program would you say has had the most influencing effect on your recovery?

Hello Smiler

Brilliant...
In my group there are always jobs that need to be done from greeting new members to helping sponsor people....
At regional and national level too lots of help is needed...

Maybe check out when your next regional meeting is?

After 10 years in GA I am quite surprised you are not aware of the many ways you can give back in the Fellowship. Especially at the Havant meeting, as the current Trustee I believe goes to that meeting.

Either ask at your local meeting or at your Regional meeting.

Hello Smartie, if you are willing to post me some information via this site on how to apply to help others in a more meaningful way who are serious about quitting Gambling then I would be happy to follow that up. I would like to become a sponsor for someone who lives on the south coast so if any of you are interested then just send a reply.

Hello Smiler
Yes GA has a program of recovery...but its down to the people in the group to offer it to the next person who wants the help....and in my experience there's a lot more of those people who don't want the help GA offers....

So how does someone go about becoming a sponsor in GA? Normally they get asked or offer their help in a meeting? Have you tried that? What i do is offer them a copy of the be a sponsor booklet and then arrange to have a further chat with them once they've read it and we take it from there....

But what does a person do if no-one wants sponsoring in your GA group? Well i keep reminding them its on offer...make sure you have a stock of Be a sponsor booklets available and lead by example....Even if someone doesn't want your help formally they may learn from how your leading your life....I've certainly learnt that way from many a GA member and still do...

Hope this helps...but feel free to pm me smiler if you'd like to chat....
In unity

I have only been back out for the last 3 months. It doesn't matter where you do your Recovery because we con be faced with temptations to have a gamble no matter where we may find ourselves if there's a way then an Addict will find it that's for sure.

Hello Smiler...
Good for you...
In the past I've had this thought that I could move away from my problems / my addiction....but there's no where in the world I could go that would be safe from gambling...
The addiction is in my head...and as much as some may suggest chopping it off...i'm kind of partial to it <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->
So how have you found your return to GA Havant since your release? Has it helped?
