Hi

Just for today I will not gamble, over time as I abstain I am able to live a healthier life one day at a time.

By abstaining from gambling I am no longer hurting myself.

Hi

I am able to celebrate each day with out gambling today.

When a person lets me know there are free from their addiction and obsessions just for today I get pleasure from their success.

Once I put a lot of time and effort in to my recovery and handed over all of my finances and started to abstain my recovery was going to become much easier.

The money was just the fuel for my addiction.

It is called a spiritual recovery program, yet I am a non religious person.

If I am able to be gambling free for today then any one can do it.

If I not escaping in my fears today then any one can do it.

Each time I went back to my addictions I needed to understand what was my last emotional trigger was.

The recovery program helped me understand that I was like a rat in a wheel going faster and faster getting no where healthy.

The recovery program works like mountain climbers tied together with ropes who find safe and secure ways of learning and finding new skills in living a healthier life today.

Why do I stick with my recovery today because I am the beneficiary and my family are living a healthy secure life today.

My family do not fear me today.

Love and peace to every one.

Hi

Just for today I will not gamble, a boundary I set for myself so that I will not hurt myself or hurt other people.

Just for today means I stay focused on today, not to worry about tomorrow, understand that I am not able to change my past.

When I do not gamble I do not hurt myself, I do not hurt other people.

Once I have said or done some thing to hurt other people I can not take that pain back.

The recovery program helped me to things out before I reacted in unhealthy ways.

The recovery program helped me understand that my unhealthy reactions to people life and situations was very unhealthy to myself and very unhealthy to other people.

That my unhealthy reactions helped me understand that hurt inner child was not healed.

The recovery program helped me understand that my anger was an unhealthy reaction was due to my pains not healed, that my anger was an unhealthy reaction was due to my fears not being faced, that my anger was an unhealthy reaction was due to my unreasonable expectations of people life and situations, that by having unreasonable expectations I was in effect hurting myself.

Just for today only I will not gamble, just for today only I will not smoke, just for today only I will not escape to addictions or obsessions, just for today only I will not transfer or dump my pains fears frustrations on to other people, just for today only I will be patient and tolerant with myself, just for today only I will validate and compliment myself for being healthy.

Just for today only I will content with any kind of progress.

Love and peace to every one.

HI

Thank you for your honest and showing strength to us all.

Each time we go back to our addiction becomes a lesson we can learn from.

My emotional triggers were my pains not healed. My emotional triggers were my fears not faced.

My emotional triggers were my frustrations due to my unreasonable expectations of people life and situations. By me having unreasonable expectations of people life and situations I was effect causing myself pains time and time again.

My emotional triggers were my feelings of loneliness due to my fears of emotional intimacy. My emotional triggers were my feelings of being bored. I can be honest today with out being cruel or adversely affecting other people. I can embrace change towards healthy habits today.

My unhealthy reactions to people life and situations indicated that my hurt inner child was not healed.

Please keep going to meetings, you will benefit from it in so many ways.

Love and peace to every one.
