Hi Jen , Vera and Monica
Group ended but I feel I need to clarify .

Avoiding a situation/ person which always triggers a gambling relapse for me is not blaming that person- it is me taking a positive step to avoid a trigger and hopefully sustain a decent length of recovery .

I did say I wasn’t going when they both asked – I just felt guilty when my mum couldn’t go alone – and I went – that’s not blame – that’s a trigger and a major one for me !

The selfishness I talk about is so much other stuff but I guess it is all part of addiction. It is not just with me but with my siblings also.

I can’t blame others for this addiction but I’m not sure my mum should have been sneaking me into over 18 casinos at 13! I do blame her for that !
