I was wondering if your questions are based from GA, Gamblers Anonymous 20 Questions?? I'm a recovering Addicted Compulsive gambler with 6+ yrs recover. I wrote my story with gambling addiction, but started my book as a Little girl to present.
I'm a survivor of sex abuse and childhood trauma, so I wanted to give insight on not only gambling, but how our past can come back to haunt us later in adulthood, and we can choose a wrong path to cope and escape those pains and hurt.
I would love to help here on Addictionland in this Area.
Thanks, Author, Catherine Townsend-Lyon "Addicted To Dimes"
