        I am a compulsive gambler
        Admitting that I am a CG – was very hard for me
        My life was a mess – but I couldn’t live gamble free
        At first there was despair and no hope – until I went to GA
        Connecting with other CG’s felt right – in a very special way
        One day at time programme – it sounded too good to be true
        Meetings helped a little – with cravings I had to get through
        Putting barriers in place – the simplicity of which I never got
        Unfortunately I wasn’t able to give up – and I felt like a clot
        Learning how to cope and letting go – was so difficult for me
        Slipping back into action – was stupid and not meant to be
        Itried in my life to be honest, open and willing to change
        Varying my day without gambling – for me was hard and strange
        Emotional, physical and financial stress – wasn’t at all right
        Gradually taking my recovery JFT – there was less of a fight
        Accepting that gambling had got me beat – I embraced GA
        My attitude changed – I felt I had more control each day
        Being in GA, helped me to make new friends and gain support
        Learning from others and my mistakes – my urges I fought
        Eventually I began to be responsible for actions – I made a new life
        Recovery for me ‘A Compulsive Gambler’ now causes less strife
