I’m pleased that you got to a good GA meeting, and that your 300th consecutive gambling free day was amazing.

It’s fairly obvious by your comments that you don’t welcome my input on your journal, I respect that decision.

I also respect the 12 step programme that is set out in GA. I like to think that I’ve incorporated all twelve steps into the way I lead my life, it’s not something I make a conscious decision to do each and every day, it’s just a way of life to me now. All 12 steps, maybe I was aggressive in the way I presented myself in reply to you, I was just demonstrating step 12; “Having made an effort to practice these principles in all our affairs, (the previous 11 steps), we tried to carry this message to other compulsive gamblers”.

It is true Jonny, that you get to make your rules, and you get to decide how you heel. Neither I, nor anybody else, has the right to tell you what to do, or how to conduct yourself. I am really sorry if I antagonised or upset you that is never ever my intention with anybody. As I said in my previous post I am not going to get in to a tit for tat back and forth argument.

I wish you well, and hope that you can continue to live in abstinence from gambling for the rest of your life.
