One Year

I have not played computer games for one year. Today. :)

I am a recovering computer game and gambling addict. My recovery birthday: On May 6, 2012 I quit games and began working a program of recovery through OLGA No computer games or slot games for me since December 12, 2012. No solitaire games with real cards since June 2013.

Congrats! You've been an awesome source of inspiration for me this past year. Would it be too much if I present you a chit as well?

I thank God every day for you, mister! I totally believe providence had our paths cross here. Oh, and congratulations!!!!!!

Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.  Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!

Thanks, all, for your kind

Thanks, all, for your kind words.

I didn't think this would be a big deal for me, because I don't generally go for celebrations and symbols and flags and such. But it turned out it is a big deal, and it's nice to have it celebrated. Thanks for the chits and the good wishes.

It takes a village to save an addict. So many people have helped me, it's impossible to thank them all. Every one of you is important. Big hugs.
