      I am a compulsive gambler
       
      Admitting that I am a CG – was very hard for me
      My life was a mess – but I couldn’t live gamble free
       
      At first there was despair and no hope – until I went to GA
       
      Connecting with other CG’s felt right – in a very special way
      One day at time programme – it sounded too good to be true
      Meetings helped a little – with cravings I had to get through
      Putting barriers in place – the simplicity of which I never got
      Unfortunately I wasn’t able to give up – and I felt like a clot
      Learning how to cope and letting go – was so difficult for me
      Slipping back into action – was stupid and not meant to be
      Itried in my life to be honest, open and willing to change
      Varying my day without gambling – for me was hard and strange
      Emotional, physical and financial stress – wasn’t at all right
       
      Gradually taking my recovery JFT – there was less of a fight
      Accepting that gambling had got me beat – I embraced GA
      My attitude changed – I felt I had more control each day
      Being in GA, helped me to make new friends and gain support
      Learning from others and my mistakes – my urges I fought
      Eventually I began to be responsible for actions – I made a new life
      Recovery for me ‘A Compulsive Gambler’ now causes less strife
