January 28 Reflection for the Day
Now that I am in Gamblers Anonymous, I am no longer enslaved by the compulsion to place the next bet. Free, free at last from fabricating the elaborate alibis – and hoping they wont unravel. Free from the guilt and shame. Free from the worry about bookies and loan companies. Free from the ever-burgeoning mountain of debt.
Do I treasure my freedom from compulsive gambling?
Today I Pray
Praise God that I am free from the urge to gamble. This is my first freedom, from which other freedoms will develop – freedom to appraise my behavior sanely and constructively, freedom to maintain relationships with others on a sound basis. I will never cease to thank my Higher Power for leading me away from my enslavement.
Today I Will Remember
Praise God for my freedom.
