Well done on 6 gamble free days, October is your G Free Month!!
I heard a man in GA ( who had learned the hard way) say, that there is no middle ground with a Gambling Addiction. We either starve it or feed it. Take your pick!!
In my early days here , I used two analogies. One referred to stomping on the bug before it climbed up our leg. The other advised us not to leave out a saucer of milk for a stray cat!
Thank God I have never met any member in GT who tried to sabatoge my recovery by acting under false pretenses.
However, I heard lots of things I did not want to hear at the time –usually the very things I needed to hear. It is the same in GA. Nobody strokes our ego. When we are in the throes of gambling, our perception can become flawed.
