Billy August 2, 2015

Hi my name is Billy and I am a compulsive gambler, this is just a little bit of my recovery.

I came back to GA 1 year and 5 weeks ago I could not take any more of my life of hell, I lost every thing due to gambling, my wife, my kids, my job my self respect.  I was a broken man, I went back to ga on the 17th of march last year as I could not take any more it was so bad I tried to kill myself.  I stood at my window just about to throw myself out of it but I could not do it I thought of my kids being without a father and said to myself this is it, I have to do somthing about this illness.

I went to a meeting with my best friend I was so happy when I got my feet in the door it was the best thing I ever did it saved my life.  1 year and 5 weeks on what a life I  have now it has completely changed, I've  got my kids back in my life, I met someone who I love very much, I never thought I would ever say this but I am really very very happy today and I owe this to GA.

Thanks to GA you really have saved my life......... Billy
