Hi .My adult son has been addicted to gambling for 7 years.It has been hell for us all.He lives with us and we have lived through huge debts and suicide threats .Today he gambled his savings of 5000 pounds and became angry with his step dad.He was screaming and crying and running round the house .It was so disturbing. He has had 2 lots of counselling and I dont know what to do next.We are 60 now and I cant see a happy life for us at all.We have bailed him out many times but was advised by gamcare that he should have his debts managed by gamcare which helped. He was debt free but now he has a credit card and I'm sick of it all.
