Thank you for taking the time to write. I really appreciate the support and encouragement.  For the first time in a long time I feel hope.  My husband has admitted he’s a compulsive gambler.  I’m not feeling confident that he will completely quit gambling. I think he still thinks he has control over it.  I can see the cycle that we both go thru.  Mine is HURT–ANGER—Disappointment—then Hope.  I think his cycle is remorseful–then rationalizing his behavior.   I will keep trying to find ways to cope and heal.
