Dear Gemma,

Thankyou for visiting the Gamblers Anonymous forum.

Compulsive gambling is a very expensive pastime. In your case you document it taking not only your money but your partners heart, trust and your relationship. You have learned the hard way that gambling, for you, is not just "harmless fun" as a prominent member of parliament once described it.

It is encouraging to hear that you have already attended Gamblers Anonymous (GA) meetings. It is also encouraging that despite being the only female in the room you were warmly welcomed and positively encouraged in your quest to tread the road to recovery. The collective wisdom of the meetings is that attendance helps members. Seeing other people with a common problem (and a common goal) seems to help individuals to gain a better life. GA is a 'twelve step' fellowship and attendance at meetings helps members to 'work the program'.

Welcome to Gamblers Anonymous. I hope it will work for you, like it has worked for me.

Yours in GA unity

'Poster' David (Barnsley)
