Hi Dr. Wood.
I will work on that for people to see. I’ve written it before as part of my first book but will do a version for here. I can also share my videos if that’s OK. One shows my decent into Gambling and the other shows my Recovery path. Both are put to music.
Many thanks for your story! It is now published in the “Stories of Hope” section. We look forward to hearing more from you on Gamtalk.
All the best
Hello everyone. My name is Bernie and I am a recovering compulsive gambler. My last bet was November 21, 2007. I’ve put my story out there on my website and in video. Since starting recovery I have focused on helping others because of step 12 and my memories of pain. I also do video meetings (therapy portion only) and am always open to talk with someone through any number of ways. Ask me anything about where I’ve been with the addiction and where I am at with my recovery. I’ll answered them all as best I can. My first 3 years of recovery involved me selling my addiction to customers in a convenience store so I had to find a way to stay clean in that environment.
reach out and ask me anything. Here is a link to my website.
