216 Days free of gambling
has it been easy .... absolutely not! 16 years of mess isn’t easy to sweep under the carpet but for once I feel like I’m getting somewhere ...slowly! The thought of losing everything has really driven me to keep going , it’s been sleepless nights of worry , reading books and counselling and self help podcasts and blocking software but I couldn’t have done it without GamCare
all the best guys it can be done one day at a time
When we heal our hurt inner child we come our of our self in so mamny ways.
We understand that living in fear is not healthy.
In time I would identify that gambling was a way of me escaping how I felt people life and situtions.
By attending meets I would relate to other people experences both healthy and unhealthy.
I use to say that I wanted to be normal, yet over time I would understand that the refence normal is not very healthy.
I am a non religious and understand that any one can heal if they put lots of time and effort in to their reecovery.
My addictions and my obsessions indicated that I was emotionally vulnerable.
Over time I would heal my hurt inner child.
Over time I would no longer want to escape my feeelings and my emotions people life and situations.
I am more stable than ever before.
Who I am in the meetings today is the same peron who faces all situations in my life today.
I no longer want to go against my own conscience and against spirtual values.
I no longer want people to fear or mistrust me any more.
Love and peace to evey one.

Thanks guys !! Just hit the 250 day mark ! Thoughts sometimes go through my head but the power I feel I have to overcome these thoughts is now greater than than the problem itself ... well that’s how I like to think of it , I’m praying that I can keep this going and doing everything I can to stay focused and on track , Good luck to everyone and don’t ever think you are completely free from this evil habit it’s always just around the corner ready to dig its claws in ... but only if you let it , believe me I’ve let it happen countless times but now I have some belief that I can overcome it
