hello all.  I called Gamcare  this morning.  Better late than never. I would like to add that I called in July last year as I realized I had a problem with gambling. I just wished I put in place what we spoke about the first time. I didn't and now pay the price of gambling more than ever the last few months. Like many of you  My wellbeing has taken a severe battering along with my negative bank balance. Time after time I say that's it no more, buy then I get paid and here we go again.  Pain, hurt, suffering, so much debt and self destruction a, depression, anxiety caused by  me. No more please. This is it. I don't want the pain no more too many people are being hurt by me. Thank you Violot at Gamcare for listening to me and helping me today.  I am going to beat this addiction with help from you all. Dean

Hi Dana. My partner is in a similar situation to yourself. I loose control and blame my partner many times. Like my partner you are in a no win situation for sure. Your son will take his frustration out on the closest person to him as I do with my partner. I hate myself because of this. No doubt he his hating himself also. I'm at a very early stage of trying to frese myself of this horrible detrimental addiction. The pain I feel when I gamble is no doubt the same as your son's.  Have you put him touch with this site . Or have you called the contact number. It may help. I feel your pain as I do my partner's.

Hi Dean @redcan

Thank you for sharing how you are feeling. Problem gambling leaves us experiencing a wealth of emotions, and it is positive you are acknowledging this in relation to your partner. We can advise on where to go for more support with this if you would like to give us another call. You sound very determined to overcome this which is really positive. Be kind to yourself and let us know if there is anything more we can do to support you.

Warmest wishes
