    JULY 10 Reflection for the Day

    The Gamblers Anonymous Program is a road, not a resting place. Before we came to this Program – and, for some of us, many times afterward – most of us looked for answers to our living problems in religion, philosophy, psychology, in theories of self-control and personal growth. Often these explorations of ours aimed at goals that were precisely what we wanted: freedom, calm, confidence, and joy. But they seldom provided any workable methods for getting there – for how to get from the doldrums of despair we found ourselves in to where we wanted to be.

    Do I truly believe that I can find everything that I need and really want through the Twelve Steps?

    Today I Pray

    May I know that, once through the Twelve Steps, I am not on a plane surface. For life is not a flat field, but a slope upward. And those flights of Steps must be taken over and over and remembered. May I be sure that, once I have made them totally familiar to me, they will take me anywhere I want to go.

    Today I Will Remember

    The Steps are a road, not a resting place.
