Some of us might be highly indignant if it were suggested that we had quit the Gamblers Anonymous Fellowship. Once, a member who had not attended a meeting in some time, was questioned about this by the Group Secretary. He replied that he had never even considered quitting the fellowship of Gamblers Anonymous. Perhaps now is the time for all of us to ask ourselves those same questions:
Have I quit the fellowship without meaning to?
Have I stopped attending meetings? stopped caring? stopped giving?
What else must I do to quit Gamblers Anonymous?
Have you ever asked yourself these questions:
If every member of G.A. performed as I do, where would G.A. be?
What if every member were as lax in attendance as I am What if all of us worked so little at spreading the word?
What if every member gave as little moral, spiritual and financial support as I do? Would Gamblers Anonymous cease to exist?
If those who came before me acted as I do, would there have been a room for me to come to when I so desperately needed one?
Am I part of the problem instead of part of solution?
I have often said that I owe my life to this fellowship, but do I really mean it?
Have I made any real attempt to pay back what I have been given?
Do I give as well as take?
There are thousands of compulsive gamblers who will some day ask for our help. Will you be there when they do?
