    JANUARY 3 Reflection for the Day

    My gambling compulsion is three-fold in that it affects me physically, mentally and spiritually. As a compulsive gambler, I was totally out of touch, not only with myself, but with reality. Day after miserable day, like a caged animal on a treadmill I repeated my self-destructive pattern of living.

    Have I begun to break away from my old ideas? Just for today can I adjust myself to what is, rather than try to adjust everything to my own desires?

    Today I Pray
    I pray that I may not be caught up again in the downward, destructive spiral that removed me from myself and from the realities of the world around me. I pray that I may adjust to people and situations as they are, instead of always trying, unsuccessfully and with endless frustration, to bend them to my own desires.

    Today I Will Remember
    I can change only myself.
