        Something has happened today …….
        Something has happened
        for me it came as a shock
        It felt like my whole body
        had taken a major knock
        Deep inside of me I knew
        what had happened was s**t
        I asked myself if I had
        the strength to cope with it?
        Normally to cope
        I would go and gamble
        As a way to escape
        from things I can’t handle
        Running away and
        placing that first bet
        Would help me to cope
        but I know I’d have regret
        I know that I am in recovery
        and I am now a lot stronger
        I know without gambling
        my life is so much better
        But what happened today
        I didn’t at all expect
        I know in my mind
        there’s 2 choices I can select
        I can go and gamble
        to helpwith the **** of today
        Or I can face the issue
        and cope in a gamble free way
        I’ve learnt to talk about it now
        which helps me to get through
        And choosing to not go and gamble
        I’ve decided not to go and do
        I can’t change what’s happened
        but I can try to cope with it within
        I try to accept it because
        gambling I don’t want to begin
        But for me it is so feking hard
        because I feel I’ve lost something
        That has given me a lot of support
        to help me cope with my gambling
        I could use what’s happened today
        as an excuse to return for a bet
        But instead thankfully the issue
        I have faced head on and met
