      Today I write here, a nervous man. I’m Tom, I’ve now been given a date to enter in to the Gordon Moody rehab centre. Which I will be going in on the 31st of January. I have all sorts of emotions running through my head but this time im definitely going to do it. My life is slowly on the decline so I have to try it. I understand that this is proberly going to be one of the hardest things in my life but im going to give it my all. And hopefully I can come out the other side with a different mindset. Just wondering if anyone has any advise for me thank you Tom

        Hello and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums. By posting to the forums you’re allowing the diverse and caring Gambling Therapy community to help support you through the difficulties you’re facing.

      This may well be a tough time for you – particularly if you’re new to recovery, so we encourage you to post here as often as you need to, as well as making use of the online groups and the live advice helpline if you’d like some one-to-one support. We’re all in this together! If you’re a new member, you are warmly invited to join Charles in one of the New Members Practical Advice groups (Mondays at 21:00 UK Time and Thursdays at 19:00 UK Time).

      The forum is a great place to share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. By writing it all down you can start to build a record of your progress that you can look back on – particularly useful if you’re ever feeling stuck. Share as much or as little as you like – but you’re encouraged to stick to keeping to just one thread in this forum – so people know where to find you to check in on your progress or to share something with you.

      The Gambling Therapy staff team don’t generally post to the forums as it is a peer support area of the site – so we’ll hand you over to the community from here.

      Take care,

      The Gambling Therapy Team

      Hi Tommy, well done on taking this step. My advice would be to just go in with an open mind and soak up everything they give you. You will gain a lot there, advice, strategies and more. It”l also be important though to use ongoing support afterwards – any outreach support that follows the residential, this forum, maybe GA meetings or whatever. If we need help to stop gambling then it is also wise to use ongoing support to help maintain recovery
