I made the decision to tell my fiance today. He is devastated and I can't even begin to explain how awful I feel about making him feel that way. I also feel a sense of relief, or maybe I am just in shock I don't have to do it anymore. No more desperately trying to break even having to lie about money so that I have enough for rent. It was killing me. I hated the gambling. I won't ever do it again.
Its one of the best decisions you ever made. Recovery starts now but there is work to do and you can never be complacent.
If you keep following the trusted advice and remain open and honest about your feelings, gambling can be consigned to the dustbin of history
Best wishes from everyone on the forum
I spoke to my partner face to face about this a couple of days ago and he has decided to give me another chance. No more lies! I had another dream about gambling last night but it was just really stressful so no desire to do it today. I went a the chatroom yesterday which was great and I left it feeling really motivated about my recovery.
I just spotted your diary on here today after our chatroom chat yesterday and I wanted to post on it to help keep you motivated. It is great to hear that you found the chatroom helpful yesterday and keep up the good work. Remember to be kind to yourself and I look forward to hearing about all the positive changes that you make in the coming days removed link There is certainly no space for gambling in your plan!
