You are not alone.
Compulsive gambling is recognised as an emotional illness. As wives, husbands, partners, siblings, children or friends of compulsive gamblers we know that living with this illness can prove a devastating experience. Family relationships can become unbearably strained and the home filled with bitterness, frustration and resentment. There seems to be no way to solve our insurmountable difficulties; so much so that we are unable to think rationally at times.
If you are affected by someone else’s gambling then Gam-Anon can help! Our meetings are for anyone who has been affected by a loved one’s gambling problem. We have been where you are now. By sharing in our rooms you will find that you are not alone!
GamAnon and GA meetings are usually held on the same nights but in separate rooms. What is said in each room is kept confidential so that members in both rooms don’t need to worry about sharing their problems or concerns
If you answer YES to at least six of these questions you may well be living with a Compulsive Gambler.
