Kudos Kathryn for reigning in those thoughts and redirecting them to something constructive! I get the thoughts all the time, my answer to them is always, "Shut up, devil!" It works for me.
Angel, like Kathryn, there are some gambling activities that I have never been interested in. I dare not even contemplate them as an alternative activity, because with my addiction, I know very well I could get interested pretty fast. Betting is betting even if it’s betting on an activity out of my scope of interest. It will certainly lead to disaster.Keep on keepin’ on…and keep the pledge.
