Gambling, that’s an addiction? Why did they lie to me? How come they’re never home? How come they didn’t talk to me? Why don’t they just stop? How could they do this to themselves, and to us?
If you have a loved one with a gambling problem, you may have asked these questions – and a thousand others. You may be suffering through sleepless nights, held awake by the fear of more broken promises. You may be suffering through feelings of isolation, sadness or despair. You may be devastated by financial problems and the deterioration of relationships. You may feel alone, or as if nobody could understand what you’re going through.
