On entering GA, I was given a book to read with twenty questions in Would, I be able to answer them honestly? And where would I begin? For answers I knew I had to search inside my compulsive liar’s head ‘Most CG’s would answer yes to at least seven of the questions’ – I read
I knew I could definitely answer all the questions with the answer ‘yes’ But to another person, I found it difficult to honestly and openly confess ‘Bloody hell – being a compulsive gambler’ was really hard for me to admit, Even though I knew deep down – ‘I was a CG and I needed help to quit’
I started to attend regular GA meetings and I shared all my addiction sh*t Soon I felt with other CG’s help – I didn’t need gambling one little bit And with other CG’s understanding support I felt I was learning to cope From the GA room I have gained so much strength, experience and hope
The 20 questions are asked in relation to different aspects of my CG life Over time the areas of concern – are causing me less problems and strife It is good for me to ask the questions occasionally and regularly reassess Thankfully with the help of CG’s and GA – the answer ‘yes’ – is now far less
