Welcome here and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums.
Thank you for reaching out; taking this first step is incredibly brave. Starting your journey to recovery can feel overwhelming, but it’s a positive and vital decision.
When you’re ready, talking to your husband openly and honestly about your struggle is a crucial step. Together, you can create a support system to help you through this journey.
Remember, you’re not alone in this, and there are people who care about your well-being. Recovery is possible, and taking these initial steps is a significant stride toward a healthier and happier life for you and your family.
Here at Gambling Therapy, we pride ourselves on being a caring and diverse online community who can help and support you with the difficulties you’re currently facing. We understand that this might be a tough time for you, particularly if you’re new to recovery, so come here as often as you need to and participate in the forums, access online groups and connect to the live advice helpline if you need one to one support. We’re in this together!
Here on the forum, you can share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. The beauty of writing it all down is that you can take your time and you will be creating a record of your progress that you can look back on if it ever feels like you’re not moving forward. So, share as much or as little as you like but do try to stick to keeping just one thread in this forum, so people know where to find you if they want to be updated on your progress or share something with you.
As well as the forums New Members are invited to join Charles in the New Members Practical Advice Group on Mondays at 21:00 (UK) and Thursday at 19:00(UK)
And on that note….
I’m going to hand you over to our community because I’m sure they will have some words of wisdom for you 🙂
