I've been an on and off user of this site for several months now. It's always been difficult for me to stay. And I'd convinced myself before that I didn't need what this site provided and that it was of no use. Then, last week, I took a close friend of mine to a Gambler's Anonymous meeeting. After sitting through this meeting, I realized that recovery doesn't just happen by going to meetings; you have to make it happen. And, if you have a group supportive of your actions, that makes it so much easier. It isn't just "take" either, you have to give back to the community.
I think I'm going to try and stay this time. At GA, they have weekly meetings for members which show up in person to talk about thier problems. If they can do that, why can't I post something everyday on this site? That's going to be my new goal. I think I'll be back :)
