I so admire your upbeat attitude and never-give-up approach. I also have several addictions besides gambling – overeating and smoking, to name a few. I decided that it was better to tackle one at a time and the since the most harmful one was gambling I did that one first and gave it my all. I feel I am in a good place with that one now and my next thing to tackle is the smoking. Bill quit yesterday and since I don’t want to smoke in front of him I know it will help me to begin at least cutting back which I hope will eventually lead to a full quit. I hope you didn’t take offense to my post on Carole’s thread, it wasn’t meant to be offensive or an attack. You are right, it is up to us to choose which methods to use in our recovery, I simply wanted to point out that I hope everyone continues to give advice and suggestions, even if they are not the right ones for us individually. If current things aren’t working then sometimes it’s good to try something different. I fought all suggestions on banning myself but that was what everyone was suggesting for me and guess what? It was the right one for me and I’m so glad I finally gave in and did it. You are a very warm and caring person, Cat, and your posts helped me through some very dark times. Yes, I have rediscovered my love of dancing in the kitchen and have a radio and CD player on my counter just for that purpose. I plan to continue dancing till I drop, lol. Luv ya girl, hang in there, you are doing great. Deb
