    MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
    FOR COMPULSIVE GAMBLERS IT CREATES UPHEAVAL.
    NO MONEY/NO GAMBLE IS THE BEST WAY TO COPE,
    RESTRICTED ACCESS IS OUR ONLY HOPE!

    THE ATM – THE CG’S “QUICK FIX”
    WHEN URGES HIT AND WE NEED OUR KICKS,
    WITHOUT A QUIBBLE, WITHOUT A CARE
    A SECOND THOUGHT IS VERY RARE!

    READY CASH FROM AN EASY STATION
    ALLOWS US INSTANT GRATIFICATION
    WITHOUT EVER TAKING TIME TO THINK
    MONEY DISAPPEARS IN AN OCULAR BLINK

    IN THE AFTERMATH OF RECENT “REJECTION”
    IN A QUIET MOMENT OF THOUGHT AND REFLECTION
    I DECIDED ON A NEW STRATEGY,
    “NO ATM” IS THE WAY FORWARD FOR ME!

    SO MY LIMITED CASH HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED
    TO A PLACE WHERE A BET CAN BE DEFERRED
    THE POST OFFICE-IT HAS NO ATM
    MY FUNDS TODAY, I’VE TRANSFERRED TO THEM!

    SO IN FUTURE WHEN I NEED SOME CASH
    I MUST STAND IN A QUEUE TO ACCESS MY “STASH”
    AND IN THE TIME LEADING TO THE PREAMBLE
    I CAN ASK MYSELF—– “DO I PLAN TO GAMBLE?”

    Every time I gamble, I lose all my money.
    What starts out as fun, ends far from being funny!
    Every time I gamble I also lose control
    What starts out as one bet, sends me on a “roll”.
    Sometimes I tell myself I’m “normal”
    That everything is fine
    But deep down in my soul
    I know I’ve “crossed the CG line”.
    And when a gambler reaches
    This sad, pathetic place
    Alternative approaches
    Are all we have to face!
    Give up the thought of winning,
    Forget about the fun
    Wave goodbye to all the “sinning”
    Resolve that we are “done!”
