First I am happy to say that all is going well in my life and that I am living gambling free. I continually work toward this goal and do everything possible to keep me on track. This include sharing advice and information from all the visit here and at my GA meetings, as well as with some outside our community.
A recent event I was involved with has given cause for me to look deeper in to my recovery and the GA program that I have associated myself with and has been a tremendous help to me. As I mentioned above, I put a lot of effort into "working the steps" as they say in my GA meetings, at least as far as I can understand of this process.
In having a closer look as some of my past dealings with others, especially while I am coming across as a member of the CG community, I am reminded of of the GA Unity Program and one of it’s principles, i.e., "Gamblers Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the Gamblers Anonymous name ought never be drawn into public controversy." While working on my own problems I crossed this line and have unintentionally and regrettably caused harm to others with some ill formed remarks. Sometimes words as they are perceived by others can be cutting and just as harmful as any direct actions.  For this I am sorry I am wrong.
And where these may be construed as vague words and not direct actions, I can only hope they come across as sincere; they come from the heart and are a result of deep thought and concern guided by some of the other principles of GA: "Continued to take personal inventory and when we are wrong, promptly admitted it." and "Make direct amends …., except when to do so would injure them or others".
These words may never reach the ones that they are intended for, but they reach me and will help be in becoming the better person that being gambling free is guiding me toward.
God’s speed.
Larry"Day Two Is Another Day Behind" – With the help of a Higher Power, My 3G’s – God, GA, and GT, I will continue to be  gambling free.
