Hi Trulyshi, Just wanted to give a belated thanks for posting on my thread. Sirena said something about being in the How-a-CG-Got-Her-Groove-Back Program. I really liked that. Kind of lightens up the work of recovery. Also, it made me think of you. If there was a How-a-CG-Got-Her-Groove-Back Award, you would be this year’s recipient! And, you definitely would have my vote!
It’s been a little heavy around here with my daughter’s broken heart and all. But, I have taken your suggestion and have been listening to music while I cook. Tonight, we have company coming for dinner, so I am going to crank it up!14 November 2013 at 8:13 pm #12117
Dear (((Debbie)))! I can so relate to staying in an abusive relationship while in the throes of being a compulsive gambler. It’s only when we get into recovery that we start seeing the trees and not the forest. As hurtful as it was that Barry made the decision to not allow you to continue living in his residence, it was the best thing for you, as it mobilized you to move forward in your life. Now you are present in life, with its ups and downs, and you have the coping skills to handle life’s adversities. I have never regretted my decision to move to the city and live alone. It’s taken some getting used to many things, and getting back in the workforce at age 58 is daunting, but I’m doing it. Those of us in recovery are doing things we never thought possible, one day at a time! Carole19 November 2013 at 11:20 am #12118

Dear (((Debbie)))! I was wondering how you were doing. I know that you are out there living your life. I am looking forward to finding a job to go to so that I have structure in my life and a purpose. I like the socialization aspect of working as well. Hopefully we can meet in the not too distant future. Carole5 February 2014 at 8:08 pm #12124

(((Debbie))) It would be so nice if you shared some of your life with us at GT here, as I for one am always wondering what and how you’re doing. You’re missed here! Carole14 October 2014 at 5:00 pm #12126trulyshiParticipant
Hi everyone. I am very guilty of not posting for a very very long time. Life has gotten in the way, but in a very good way. I moved in with Bill back in July and am very happy. I spend a lot of time with my granddaughter, Sarah, and my daughter informed me last week that I have a new grandchild on the way. I have slipped and fallen a few times over the past year with gambling but for the most part I consider myself still in recovery, my focus is the same – to abstain from gambling and stay on track. Work is going well, I am being transferred to a new branch next week which is essentially a lateral move, but could also be considered a promotion since it involves more duties and a chance to prove myself for a management position. It is also closer to home and further away from the casino, which is a definite bonus. Hope you all are well and I am going to spend some time catching up reading posts. Love you all, Debbie14 October 2014 at 6:57 pm #12127velvetModerator
I am so very pleased to hear you are happy with Bill, your daughter, your granddaughter and your work – life sounds really good and you deserve it to be so but it could all fall away if you keep testing your addiction – you are a CG and the risk is too great. I am glad the work move is taking you further from the casino but surely it would be better to self-ban.
I always want to read when I see your posts that everything is going great – please take care of yourself – I have missed you.
