I’ve been living with a compulsive gambler for thirty years. I could write a book about the things he has done to me over the years, but that's just predictable. We have both been to Gamblers Anonymou
I have a son who is now 21 years old, I cannot express how much his habit has affected us, he has actually lost grands, I have tried various things including sending him overseas for a change of scene
First off, I want to say that I have an amazing father, and hate to question anything he says/does, even if I know he's making a mistake.
