Just caught up with your thread. I’ve not posted much lately since getting out of GMA (long story which you can read on my thread) but to say your posts moved me would be understating it. I only wanted to add that I have an appointment with the NPGC (CNWL) on June 22nd. i did the CBT course in Dec 2012 but i wanted to be a ‘part time’ gambler and have a gambling contract. I didn;t believe I had a problem, and I did not know how bad it would get. This time I am going to do the psycho-dynamic treatment they had. GMA wasn’t right for me, but I believe this will be as it will dal with my underlying predeliction for addiction. I hope.
I am 69 days clean today, and go to GA between 2 and 4 times a week. Works for me. It;s like anything – it’ll work if you want it to.
Be strong mate, you have written some astounding posts over the time I have been here and I love reading what you have to say. I look forward to the day when the posts are positive and it will happen. Trust in CNWL I know them there as I go to the post-support groups once a week. It’s like Harry said, you get out of it what you put in.
Take care mate, all my love to you and yours.
