Without freedom from compulsive gambling, we have nothing. Yet we can’t be free of our obsession to gamble until we become willing to deal with the character defects that brought us to our knees. If we refuse to work on our glaring defects, we’ll almost certainly return to our addiction. If we stay clean with a minimum of self-improvement, perhaps we’ll settle into a comfortable but dangerous sort of limbo for a while. Best of all, if we continuously work the Steps, we’ll assuredly find true and lasting freedom under God.

Am I walking with confidence that I’m at last on the right path ?

Today I Pray

May God show me that freedom from gambling addiction is an insecure state unless I can be freed also of my compulsions. May God keep me from a half-hearted approach to the Program, and make me know that I cannot be spiritually whole if I am still torn apart by my own dishonesty and selfishness.

Today I Will Remember

Half-hearted, I cannot be whole.
