San Diegans who ask Gamblers Anonymous to help them regain a financial footing after an opportunity to live a secure life was ruined by the cost of gambling choose to share a common problem with other gamblers. Members act their part giving support to a gambler who used craftiness to attempt to improve their financial position instead of work.
Members have to prove they are willing to do their own part finding relief from financial pressures. Stubborn settling for ruined finances, and covering up the problem, does not belong at a 12 Step Program meeting. "Compulsive gambling is an illness," the organization says. An illness a gambler has to overcome.
A normal life enjoying the success made possible by an earned income, kept safe from loss, gives San Diegans their reason to join San Diego Gamblers Anonymous.
Saving earned money is a member's triumph. Gambling, they all learn, is not just a distraction. Rolling the dice on take home pay at a casino does not fit in a normal life. Budgeting personal finances does.
New habits members learn going thro9ugh the 12 steps keeps them safe from financial failures. Members, this year, had an opportunity to join together at the 2014 Mini-Conference, hel in early March, and work on following Gamblers Anonymous in a Strive for Serenity.
Members get the help they need to lay a foundation for secure wealth.
The line continues next week. . . .
