    Something has happened today …….
    Something has happened
    for me it came as a shock
    It felt like my whole body
    had taken a major knock
    Deep inside of me I knew
    what had happened was s**t
    I asked myself if I had
    the strength to cope with it?
    Normally to cope
    I would go and gamble
    As a way to escape
    from things I can’t handle
    Running away and
    placing that first bet
    Would help me to cope
    but I know I’d have regret
    I know that I am in recovery
    and I am now a lot stronger
    I know without gambling
    my life is so much better
    But what happened today
    I didn’t at all expect
    I know in my mind
    there’s 2 choices I can select
    I can go and gamble
    to helpwith the **** of today
    Or I can face the issue
    and cope in a gamble free way
    I’ve learnt to talk about it now
    which helps me to get through
    And choosing to not go and gamble
    I’ve decided not to go and do
    I can’t change what’s happened
    but I can try to cope with it within
    I try to accept it because
    gambling I don’t want to begin
    But for me it is so feking hard
    because I feel I’ve lost something
    That has given me a lot of support
    to help me cope with my gambling
    I could use what’s happened today
    as an excuse to return for a bet
    But instead thankfully the issue
    I have faced head on and met
