Glad to read you can’t act immediately on urges, I-did-it.
Sometimes I used to get a thought of gambling in my head , and before I knew it I would be on the way to hell.
Other days I would be more sneaky. I would plan in advance. Have all the “essentials” lined up and head off in cold blood.
The consequences were always the same.
Loss.
Regret.
Tears.
Torture.
Grief.
“Why Oh why”.
I never once said “I’m really happy that I submitted to that urge” but I did say, a thousand time, “I really regret that I wasn’t strong enough to say ‘no’!”
Good to meet you in the Group earlier.
Take care.
