It is not September 1 in Canada, but it is in Ireland so Dear Vera this is for you when you check in while I am still sleeping LOL. You are 6 hours ahead of us, it’s only 7:50 p.m. here, but 1:50 a.m. so hopefully you are having a good sleep right now.One day at a time my sweet lord…1 September 2013 at 12:52 am #9082kathrynParticipant

Good morning Cat, Vera, and Kathryn – plus the others that may read and wish to join in on a pact to not gamble during the 30 days of September, a pledge to not gamble One Day At A Time.
Today I join this pact and renew my Daily Pledge to not gamble, not one bet, not one cent or token. I am looking forward to celebrating another birthday during this month (Sep 7) not being controlled by this addiction. Too many birthdays were wasted away at the casino, too many excuses and lies told to loved ones and friends as to why I was leaving a normal celebration early.
Seeing the words "edited by" reminded me that while we cannot edit our past as we can our post, we can still edit the negative thoughts the may cause us to make future mistakes, changing them to positive actions. When urges or temptations tell us to give gambling a try, we can "Take The Time To Think Things Through" (the 7 Ts of recovery), or as some say "play the tape through to the end" where we again end up facing the same old consequences and heart aches, we can do this before we venture back out into the gambling world.
God’s speed. Stay Strong. Keep aware.
LarryThanks to my Higher Power, My 3G's – God, GA, and GT, "Day Two Is Another Day Behind" and with the help from all I hope to continue to remain gambling free.1 September 2013 at 9:35 pm #9084
I did not gamble yesterday and do not plan on gambling today.
Kathryn, I had to look up the time difference for Australia from Canada and depending what part of Australia it can be 15, 16 or 17 hours ahead of us!!!
Larry, as always it is wonderful to see you posting. You really have a way of making me think about this addiction and I thank you for that.One day at a time my sweet lord…2 September 2013 at 1:50 am #9085nevaParticipant
I was signing in to update on the August pact and here it is September. I’ve had a happy houseful of granddaughter’s this weekend. It’s a 3-day weekend for me and I was a little worried about it but the family showed up and no time to even think of gambling! Happy September to everyone. I agree, it’s nice to see Larry posting again.4 September 2013 at 12:26 pm #9086

Today I am adding another day to my *****. It is my bellybutton Birthday, and one that I would not be celebrating if not for the gambling free anniversaries that I have celebrated here and at my GA meeting. Today my Daily Pledge to not gamble was not made in vain.
God’s speed. Stay strong. Keep checking off the days of September.LarryThanks to my Higher Power, My 3G's – God, GA, and GT, "Day Two Is Another Day Behind" and with the help from all I hope to continue to remain gambling free.8 September 2013 at 9:02 pm #9089pParticipant
