Great job on your recovery by not gambling today!

Don’t be sorry – posting your thoughts and feelings as many times as you need to is exactly what this space is for – a safe place for you to get anything you feel off your chest and whatever you think off your mind.

This is a very difficult time for you, and you are right, not many people will understand unless they have been through or touched by this terrible addiction. But if we keep the addiction hidden and stay quiet, then it continues to have power over us and our choices. Fear also keeps us from the truth and getting support. I know it’s also difficult to imagine now, but most people will want to help you and understand what you are going through once you tell them what’s happened. I’m sure your family loves you. There will be help when you are ready. You are brave enough and strong enough to do it.
