New to here but not gambling
#2
Hello Heather, I feel that there are two scenarios that need addressing here. The first is the situation between you and your husband. There has to be a place where you can sit down together, maybe with a moderator, and discuss calmly what's happened. Regardless of what you have done and the fact that you have an addiction, there's a good chance he doesn't understand. To him you've just taken his money. If it ends up that you can't work it out together then either you'll go to the police on him for the abuse or he'll go to the police for taking his money. It's obviously better for both of you if a peaceful resolution can be found.
The second is what help are you getting with your problem? Gamcare and Gamblers anonymous are not the same thing and preach a different approach towards recovery. Can I suggest that you attend a GA meeting, if you are not already doing so, and get help in arresting this problem. First step is putting it down and then you can start to recover.
If you are already doing this that's great, maybe ask him, when things are calm again, to go with you to an open meeting, so that he can see he's not alone and to get a real world view of compulsive gambling.
How do I stop gambling?

Honesty.
Open-minded.
Willingness.


Chris.
