Getting Past Gambling

A place to come and share experiences, to find support and strength, for those of us who are putting gambling behind us and finding new exciting and happier ways to live our lives.

Reflection for the Day

Since I came to GA, I've become increasingly aware of the Serenity Prayer. I see it on literature covers, the walls of meeting rooms, and in the home of new found friends. "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Do I understand the Serenity Prayer? Do I believe in its power and repeat it often? Is it becoming easier for me to accept the things I cannot change?

Today I Pray: Grant me that the words of the Serenity Prayer never become mechanical for me or lose their meaning in the lulling rhythms of repetition. I pray that these words will continue to take on new depths of significance as I fit life's realities to them. I trust I may find the solutions, I need in this prayer, which, in its simplicity, encompasses all of life's solutions.

Today I Will Remember: Share the Prayer.

Hi,
My name's Tony and it's been eight-years and three months since my last bet.

I came upon this site and it was rather like discovering a safe harbour between meetings.

I enjoyed reading your comments Linda, and would endorse every one of them - there is a life after gambling.

I stumbled upon this site whilst searching for a free 'gambling site blocker' for one of our newer members.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us.

Often in our quest to win stakes we forget that we are actually playing a game. This is what Linda has made me realize with her with her beautiful thoughts.
