January 13 Reflection for the Day
The Gamblers Anonymous Program and my friends in the Fellowship have provided me with a whole new set of tools for living. If I use all of these tools regularly and well, they’ll also help rid me of such negative feelings as guilt, anxiety, rebellion, and pride.
When I’m feeling depressed, do I use the tools that have proved effective? Or do I grit my teeth and suffer in painful silence?
Today I Pray
I praise my wonder-working Higher Power for giving me the tools for recovery, once I admitted I was powerless over gambling and gave myself over to the will of God as I understand Him. I give thanks for the Twelve Steps, and for the fellowship of the group, which can help me see myself honestly. I gave thanks for those words and phrases which become, as we understand them more completely, banners in our celebration of life free from gambling.
Today I Will Remember
Pass on the passwords to recovery.
