    MAY 27 Reflection for the Day

    When I have only myself to talk to, the conversation gets sort of one-sided. Trying to talk myself out of a “small wager” or “just one hand” is like trying self-hypnosis. It simply doesn’t work; most of the time, it’s about as effective as trying to talk myself out of a case of flu. When my heart is heavy and my resistance low, I can always find some comfort in sharing with a true and understanding friend in the Gamblers Anonymous Program.

    Do I know who my friends are?

    Today I Pray
    May I be convinced that, as part of God’s master plan, we were put here to help each other. May I be as open about asking for help as I am ready to give it, no matter how long I have been in the Program. May the experiences of countless others be enough to prove to me that “talking myself out of it” seldom works, that the mutual bolstering that comes from sharing with a friend usually does.

    Today I Will Remember
    When I ask for help, I am helping.
