        "A place to turn"  that has helped me reach Day 730, Year Two, and will continue with me on my journey — if I chose to allow it, and chose to stay gambling free.
        A Place To Turn
        I had no place to turn,
        I only know that the time was due.
        I Googled and found millions of hits,
        Millions of places where I could learn.
        Sites that offered something new,
        Places where after being alone, I would finally fit.
        One site stood out, its name was just right;
        Gambling Therapy was here for my case.
        I need therapy but was afraid to seek,
        For fear of reprisals and of doing what was right.
        But here it was safe and I entered the race,
        I worked on a program that I knew I could keep.
        The first surprise was that I was not alone,
        Others here had shared my grief;
        Others had gone before me on this journey.
        They welcomed me and I felt at home.
        They shared of ways that would bring relief,
        Of things to do to find the key.
        That was months ago, just two years today.
        I no longer need to search for places each hour,
        Through finding others here I found what worked for me.
        I still search and explore, but it is now for strength to stay.
        Here I also found Gamblers Anonymous and my Higher Power,
        I found the ways that will keep me gambling free.
         LarryThanks to my Higher Power, My 3G’s – God, GA, and GT,  "Day Two Is Another Day Behind" and with the help from all , I will continue to remain gambling free.
