I am off for the weekend to a family gathering,  the first time we have all been together since my CG committed his life to being gamble free and I am looking forward to it with immense pleasure.  I have learned so much.  I  believe that with masks lifted we will enjoy each others company in a new and better way.  I realise it will have memories for him but I know he will cope with them as he has coped with his adversity.  He never seeks praise but today my thought is that I want to say how proud I am of him and all those CGs who change their lives.  To all those who still struggle I would add that the rewards are immeasurable and please never stop trying – there really is a better life.
