Anymore why I don’t have money are we’re i am , I couldn’t go in a grocery store had to play number and buy tickets are go to gas station had to play the lottery and everyweek end went to the casino, did al this for twenty years, so it is hope too stop gambling. Pray and trust god you can do it, I even went as for of banning by self off the consino, still would go on there and went after five years unbanned my self didn’t realize I was sick, but now I feel positive .

    • Did you get a sponsor from here? I need one. How did you do that?

      • Hi Jbear
        Most folks find a sponsor by attending GA meetings

      • If your room does not offer you a sponsor, walk up to someone in the room with a lot of recovery who impresses you and ask them to be your sponsor. Worst they can say is no. If that happens ask someone else until they say yes. The sponsor/sponsee relationship benefits both parties. Its considered an honor to sponsor somebody. Its a way of giving back to program.

    • If the room doesn’t offer you a sponsor, go up to someone with a lot of recovery who impresses you and ask them directly to be your sponsor. Worst they can say is no. If that happens, ask someone else until someone says yes. Easy enough.
