Gratitude List

Time for a new Gratitude List thread.

It's helpful in recovery to make a gratitude list from time to time.   Feel free to post your gratitude list here.  Some people make a gratitude list at the end of the day.  Or when we aren't feeling good.  Or when we are feeling good.  Or....

The archived gratitude list is here:


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.

I am grateful for: 1.

I am grateful for:

1. living. This sounds trite, but over the last ten years I experienced major cancer, caregiving a very ill husband, 8 years of excessive gaming, depression (suicidal), and now widowhood. It certainly has not been an easy trip, but I am gateful to still be alive and fairly happy.

2. Finding OLGA and quitting excessive gaming

3. OLGA recovery friends

4. for knowing my husband; he made me a better person.

5. for being able to help others. I get more joy out of this than anything else, except maybe my garden. :)

I am grateful for being sorber even though at times it is hard to see the value of sobriety.

I'm grateful for OLGA!

I'm grateful for OLGA!

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!

I am grateful

I'm grateful to my wife, she never give up on me. My 3 kids always cheer me up. They are my strengths for my recovery.

addiction isn't a disease
addiction is an adaptation
it's not you
it's the cage you live in

I am grateful for

1. God, because HE always surprises me anew and puts me back on the right track.

2. My Wife, because she loves me so much and accepts me even in my errors.

3. My newborn daughter, who makes me smile so much.

4. Me, because even if I have my mistakes and my bad days, I am awesome. Ask God, HE made me and HE makes no mistakes. :D

5. The Olga-Forum and its members. You are awesome, you have interesting stories, you are a help. You are not here by chance.

Denial is not a river in egypt.

I'm an online game addict

im grateful to have found this site... I am an addict and for today I will acknowledge my nervousness, acknowledge the fear of letting go of my online chess game. There's so much more to my life... Husband, adult children, grandchildren, my employees, my society, my community and my animal... My jogging, my books, all the things I want to do!
