Yes, TF, bad memories haunt us but as you say, the human brain has a mechanism to obliterate those events. I did terrible things to my sons when they were teenagers but still managed to justify gambling, saying “We all make mistakes rearing kids ” or some such BS. There is a passage in the GA literature that says “don’t tempt or test yourself”. Keep it in mind when parking near the bookies. One false move can set us back big time. Never allow complacency to catch you off guard. This disease has taken a lot from every CG I ever met. Gambling always end in tears for a CG. You are doing brilliantly. Stay focused.
