Do Gamblers Anonymous members go into gambling
places to help former members who are still gambling?
No. Families and friends of these people have asked us to
intercede but we have never been able to be of any real help.
Actually, sometimes we felt we retarded a member's eventual
recovery by giving them this unsolicited attention. It all goes back
to the basic principle that a gambler ought to want help before
he or she is approached by us.
