Between a rock and a hard place
My sister has been a compulsive gambler for many years. In the past various family members have bailed her out of her financial difficulties, and it seems this time it is my turn.

Things are different though, for the first time - that we know of - she has stolen to support her addiction. My instinct is to refuse her money and even call the police myself, as I see no end to this cycle. On the other hand she is already beating herself up over this and I worry that I may be the catalyst that tips her over the edge?

She has been seeing a therapist, but last week he said he didn't think he could help her (?)...two days later she lost her whole salary.

We have encouraged her to attend meetings, but short of dragging her there it does not look like it is going to happen.

Maybe I just have to take the risk and cast her out....but she is my sister and we all love her very much
