My Gamblers Anonymous Toolkit (GAT) Mobile App

Get Your Daily Reprieve from Gambling Addiction while on the go with the My Gamblers Anonymous Toolkit (GAT) App!

It’s like having Your Sponsor in Your Pocket!

My Gamblers Anonymous Toolkit (GAT) is an exciting new recovery tool for members of GA. It has a Journal that makes it easy to find time to write in your journal. Just have access to an internet connection at home (computer) or on the go (mobile devices and tablets) and journal via typing.

It also has a Spot Check Inventory that allows you to quickly get rid of resentments when on the go and you can later add more detail via your computer because all data is securely synced to the cloud using the same security as banks!

Just because you’re in recovery doesn’t mean life will slow down. Instead it will move forward, and so must you. Often times moving forward means being on the constant go. In effect, this means that if you’re using journaling as part of your recovery, then you don’t have time to sit down and write your feelings out.

There’s another problem that arises with paper journaling: privacy. If you mistakenly leave your journal out, someone might “accidentally” read it. Although a journal is a private matter and it’s likely closed, people nowadays will still somehow invite themselves to opening your journal; thus, reading your private thoughts.

Oh, what scandals can occur from private information!
It’s so good to know that both of these situations are avoidable – thanks to this GAT App!

It also has an GA Birthday Calculator that will help you track how long you’ve abstained from gambling by total hours, days, months, and years.

Recovery Journal

In addition to writing our inventories and the list of people we have harmed, most of us have found that writing has been an indispensable tool for working the Steps. Further, putting our thoughts and feelings down on paper, or describing a troubling incident, helps us to better understand our actions and reactions in a way that is often not revealed to us by simply thinking or talking about them. In the past, gambling was our most common reaction to life. When we put our difficulties down on paper, it becomes easier to see situations more clearly and perhaps better discern any necessary action.

With the journal, you simply type in an entry. Whatever you want to express – anger, sadness, joy, etc. – do so with the assurance that your thoughts will remain private. This is because all data is encrypted; you’re the only person who will have access to it. If you want to add an extra sense of security for your own peace of mind, create a fictitious name.

Remember, however, that you’re the only writer and reader in GAT’s journal. In addition, you can edit and delete entries at any time.

If you create a Gratitude List using My GA Toolkit on a daily or weekly basis it will help you abstain from Gambling!
It’s been proven that if you put aside a minute or two every day to express gratitude for your life you will feel happier, more determined, more energetic, and more optimistic. — This was proven by a series of studies conducted by Psychologists Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough.
“What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.” — Oprah Winfrey

– With Spot Check Inventories, this is an opportunity to quickly express your resentment. When you’re angry, you need to dispose this emotion fast so that it won’t eat at your soul throughout the remainder of the day.

– View the amount of time you’ve been abstinent from Gambling each time the app is opened.

– To protect anonymity, the actual app icon does not show references to Gamblers Anonymous.

• Available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad!

  1. I’m so happy to see an app like this. I believe we need more of it and more GA literature made available in the same way. I’ll be sharing about this app and promoting it at all the meetings I go to.

    Thank you very much for making this available to us to help us in our recovery.

  2. Thank You for this APP!! Any additional material GA members can get ahold of for recovery is fabulous!!
    At times we need to get things off of our chest and we may not be at a meeting at that time. With this tool, we are able to express what we are feeling by writing it down. I belive this will help with recovery.

  3. I’m so grateful for this app. I’ve started a GA mtg. So far I’m the only member. Closest mtg is 186 miles. Waiting for ads to bring people in.
    I’m female 63 yrs, I’m needing a sponsor ! Any one willing?

  4. I have no ga meetings even remotely close and I do not have a reliable support system I can rely on despite asking often for family support. I am desperately hoping this app will be the support I so desperately need.

    • Sorry there’s no close by meetings. Hopefully the GA website can help get in touch at least online with support. Also, consider going to Open AA Meetings and substituting Gambling for Alcohol if not in your head. I know the affect of winning at Gambling can be described as the same short term high from Cocaine. Anyway, open AA meetings might be the route to go… Hope this helps, Nathan

  5. Thank you for this app. I also have a serious problem with gambling and need all the help I can get. I live 3 hours from the nearest meeting. I also need a sponsor and want to start GA meetings in Hot Springs Arkansas.

    • Tony,I just found out my husband has a serious problem wanting to know if you ever started those meetings in hot springs ar?
