You really have come to grips with you addiction in one foul swoop Gov. I’m very happy for you. Some of us are slow learners! Personally, I kept on and on trying to get the better of the slot machines until I ended up exhausted and I now admit defeat.
Sadly, it cost me more than I ever bargained for.
When we inflict pain on ourselves it becomes like torture . When the suffering becomes too much, we eventually call a halt.
I am glad you stopped before you reached that point.
Best wishes in recovery
One day at a time!
