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.
