    They say if you want to get over your hurt and grief, it is through love

     

    So, here’s to you, my addiction to gambling:

     

     

     

    I love that you showed me that there is more to life

     

    than this pain, self-loathing and strife

     

    I love that you even took me down,

     

    So now I can get back up without a frown

     

    I love that you showed me the light above

     

    I love that you showed me there is More to love,

     

    I even love that you are always going to be with me

     

    As you will help me, and show me, what is important to see

     

     

     

    And although I love you, I will not let it be,

     

    You will not have the ultimate control of me.

     

    And so, although I love you, I will now set you free,

     

    I am going to be the best I can be!

    Great poem Sara.
    Gambling is like an abuse lover .
    It doesn’t want to let us go but it doesn’t want us to be happy either – it just wants to control us and our suffering isn’t important.

    I have looked at gambling in that way myself, in the past. And although I seen it that way, and would have never have went back if it was an abusing lover, I went back to gambling. Crazy how our minds work, isn’t it?
