I am exhausted and drained every day after long hours at work, but I am really thankful, happy and contented. I cannot do other things with my free time after work otherwise I am putting myself in danger. I cannot afford to replace my time for sleeping to do other things otherwise I risk making a big mistake. I need to rest and sleep to recharge my strength and energy otherwise I will become weaker in staying abstinence, I can become very stressed when I lose sleep, stress can trigger me to gamble.
Journaling helps me check my thought, feeling, and action today. It helps me to reflect on my unstable emotion and stress at this moment. Journaling helps me to see the picture and my choices very clearly. I was heading in the wrong direction. I decided to make a U-turn back. I repent today. I will not endure and tolerate gambling today. I will not compromise and gamble today. One day at a time.
I shall have a good rest and sleep now. I will stay away from danger!
I have switched from relapse to recovery, switched from danger to safety by a power greater than me.
