Hi kpat. Thanks for your post. None of us are cured. We get the urges and if we have enough barriers in place and support we can ride it out. I think it is a ongoing process. But after a while the urges lessen and the gambling ceases. I think that you could have tons of money and be unhappy. Look at all of these stars and paid athletes. They have so many addictions. I think we have forgotten the things that are important: family and friendships. Kpat, I think it is the little things in life that bring happiness I think that you are doing amazingly well in your recovery journey. It’s hard! You must have good kids. They want to spend time with you and treat you respectfully. That says a lot about you as a parent. My best accomplishments are my children and my Grandson, who my Husband and I raised the first 3 years of his life. They are my joy. I think you are doing great. Keep going. PS. credit isn’t all that it cracked up to be. I think that paying in cash is probably better for us.
