Hi @Saz75,

Weclome to the GamCare forum!

It's great to hear that you had the courage to attend your first GA meeting last night.  I hope things went well for you?

It can be daunting at first, but you haven taken the hardest step of all.

The GamCare forum is a great place to discuss anything that is on your mind and can offer lots of help and support.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you are looking for anything in particular on the forums.

Thanks

@ltr9h2umg0 - Hi Sineadx83,

I just thought that I would check-in with you as I have just seen your post from yesterday.

Are you OK at the moment?

It's very common to go through periods of very difficult days.  Ironically, these are the days that we may not want to speak with anyone, but it's when we take that active step of seeking support that helps us the most.

Please let me know if you want to chat further.

Thanks

Cabe

Hi @lrw50,

I remember thinking that I couldn't do it either.  We are not in the right mindset when struggling with gambling harms.

All I can say is that although I have a different recovery pathway these days, GA definitely helps and can be a great opportunity to meet and connect with like minded individuals who have similar stories to ourselves.

Don't rule it out as it could be the best decision you have ever made.

I hope you are well.

Thanks
