    I just found this site this evening. I was looking for more support and diversion. Just a little about myself -I am a 49 year old woman who began gambling about 8 years ago. I had gambled a very little bit  before that, but a new casino came in less than 10 minutes from my house 9 years ago in July. I quit drinking about 8 years and 8 months ago. I did not know that switching addictions was so common. I am in AA and now GA. My last gamble date is July 31st. I have known I had a problem for a long time, but was always determined that "this time it would be different" of course it never was. I am gradually beginning to fill in the hole I created. I have to remind myself, whenever I get impatient, I didn’t get here overnight, and I will not be able to fix it overnight. I am in a number of web based support groups as well as going to GA. Just recently [last couple weeks], I have been having difficulty reading and posting in DS the primary group I went to for help. I really love DS and the virtual family I have found there, but I have to have options for when I am unable to get on/in there. I hope it is all okay to say this. Although I am abstaining my partner and my sister [all of us share a home] still go. I do not want to take that away from them, but it does make it more difficult sometimes. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks again ~atticus“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together… there is something you must always remember.
