Dear (((Laura)))! I was reading some of your posts and you wrote that your urges to gamble come from relationship issues and not being happy with yourself. That’s exactly how I feel. I was looking for something to make me feel better about myself, and gambling filled that need for a short time, as it was exciting and fun. Gambling became anything but fun for me and for those around me. Recently I decided to stop wishing I would lose weight, and decided to make some lifestyle changes to make that happen. It too is a recovery process and it’s all about progress and not perfection. My relationship with Danny is complicated even though we are living separately. I struggle with urges to gamble especially when I am bored. One day at a time, and some days it’s moment by moment. Carole
