I just wanted to thankyou for posting about this and I’m glad to see that there’s the opportunity to break that silence. My own gambling therapist always says be careful who you tell you had a gambling problem to. This always bothers me as I’ve been in recovery from drugs and alcohol for 10 years and nobody gets bent or judgemental for trying to change those behaviors. But as soon as you say anything about gambling addiction you get treated like crap from others. There is so much stigma about it people don’t no what they dont understand but it’s frustrating having to hide something when your trying to be honest and heal. I definitely hope more people in the world will learn that it works the same way substances do it alters your brain chemistry and messes you up so your not rational or healthy conciously.
