      Its great to see so many people on here at the same time i thought there are still so many who need help. I just finished my therapy at gordon moody but still finding it hard to be motivated and move on although gambling is the last thing i would do. When does it get easier? I was reading alot of peoples post toady and its very uplifting to see so many doing well also very happy for them even though i dont know them.

      Hi Azeus, I assume you just finished ur therapy in Dudley. I finished at Beckenham on the 5th Sept. Well done for getting on here so soon. Feels strange being out eh? I had a great therapy process at Beckenham and felt super positive when I got out. Reality hits hard though and I’ve been brought back down to earth. Only a couple of urges my first week out on the back of very few in my three months of therapy. It’s great to stay away from the gambling now that you are out but be wary of other bad influences, ie alcohol, dangerous friends. I thought I was invincible coming out of therapy but have been reminded just how fragile my recovery is and nearly slipped. The therapy continues though use this forum and stay in contact with the positive people u met during your recovery if you can. I post every week just a kind of diary to keep myself focused on my recovery. Take it easy friend and be careful, early days and all that.
