May I join the circle in support? I take your hands as we get through today without gambling. Sherry2 March 2013 at 10:57 am #11121
Cat that is so sweet. I was really touched that you would do that. Thank you. No gambling today.
P2 March 2013 at 6:12 pm #11122
Sherry, of course we welcome all in our circle, and the reason that I put Ican and P on the month is that they have been having such a tough time, and we can all relate to fighting to get back on the recovery train. I though we could all support each other on a daily basis, or hourly or whatever it takes. I hope V joins us. Ican I am sorry I did not mean to put pressure on you, and don’t think about the Month of March, just think of today, that is all any of us can do. Just for today I do not plan on gambling. Wishing everyone a gamble free day!!!One day at a time my sweet lord…2 March 2013 at 9:04 pm #11123
Thanks for adding us into the monthly pact cat. I dont plan on gambling today even though i have some urges popping in, i will just wait them out.

No gambling for me today. Cat, I was kidding about the pressure, but I think I welcome and appreciate the extra accountability this month. I was hoping to end the year of 2012 with 3 gamble-free months, then I gambled in December. Thinking, then, that 2013 would be a new year…gambled one day in January and then one day in February. The day in February hit me hard. It has been hard to regroup and start over. I was hoping you would start a March pledge because I want to have an entire month free of gambling, and I was eager to leave February behind me. Then I saw you had started a March pledge and my name was on it. I know it is a gamble-free life we are going for, but that seems like an impossible dream to me…so I will focus on recovery and try with everything I have to keep this March monthly pact. I am glad that neva has joined in this circle of support and would love to see others join in as well.2 March 2013 at 9:40 pm #11125
Yes this pledge is not just for ican and myself it is for all, cat was just including us, please join in and thanks again cat

Hi Cat P Ican
I know the V mentioned isn’t me but please ***** me in the circle – I would like to support you all because I know you can do it and doing it together means you are aware that others are fighting with you. United you stand – together you stand.

I am so happy to see so many joining and taking each others hand and supporting and encouraging each other. I saw this quote… Life is like a book, every day is a new page, every month is a new chapter, and every year is a new series. Every day, God willing, we get a brand new day to chose what we want to do. I do not plan on gambling today!!! I do plan on going to Church though, and will say a prayer for all on GT, not just the compulsive gamblers, but the friends and families as well. Wishing everyone a gamble free day!!!!One day at a time my sweet lord…3 March 2013 at 8:17 pm #11130
No gambling today. I imagine us all at GT in a big circle holding hands. Joined and united by our desire for a better life. Love this place. It is a dose of sanity.

Hi Cat, ican, P, Ready2change, Neva, Maverick and anbody else joining your circle
Still willing you all on and anybody else who is doing the March march into recovery – at the end of the F&F group last night we held hands in cyber space and said the Serenity Prayer together and my thoughts were with you all as well.
When triggers srike think of the others in the circle, could they be struggling and how would you want them to react? Have a conversation with them in your head rather than the addiction. The bonding in this forum is terrific, you all want the others to succeed so know and trust that this is what they all want for you.
