Hi, I am Velvet and I am the mother of a compulsive gambler who now lives in control of his addiction.   After far too many years of unwittingly enabling my son and the total breakdown of our relationship, I changed my life.   Thanks to one woman, who carried on giving time and support in my Gamanon group, 15 years after her husband had taken control of his addiction, I found my salvation.  I have chosen to take the miserable experience of living with the addiction and turn it, hopefully, into something good and useful.   Supporting Friends and Family (F&F), passing on coping mechanisms and offering non-judgemental support has become my passion.  I welcome all those who love compulsive gamblers to join me in F&F only groups and/or to join our forum :)
