Hi Buckle.  I am Debbie and I am a compulsive gambler.  I just wanted to let you know that if not for the support I have received here, through GA and personal counselling I would not be in the solid recovery I am now.  Life has thrown me many curves over the past year, especially over the past few months and only that support has gotten me through.  Even thought I am not gambling now I will not let my guard down and will not stop my weekly counselling sessions or the posting here.  If I become complacent then it could be my downfall, addiction is not a curable disease, it is for a lifetime.   Please tell your husband to continue what has been working for him, it is worth it.  Debbie
