Ten years clean
A letter from a grateful program client
Dear Lisa (Vig),
It’s this time of year we all truly appreciate what we have and what we are grateful for. I look back to July 2005, when my life was a mess, and it was controlled by gambling. Then I met you and Dawn (Cronin) and began my recovery.
Seems like yesterday, but clean almost ten years, I realize I could not be where I am today without the help of your organization, those troubled by gambling, and GA as well. It took a serious look in the mirror to understand how bad my addiction had become, and those looks in the mirror still continue today. One day at a time.
But like most things, if you have a balance in life, the problems aren't as bad and the addictions aren't as controlling. I just know that if I hadn't met you and Dawn, things might not be so good at this point in my life. I believe we all have a purpose/destiny in life, and yours is to help people like me.
Please share with anyone who can benefit.
Thank you with all my heart,
Recovering gambling addict
