Hi Logic, it is great to see you posting but please, please do it for you. This is the place you should be able to come to be honest about how you feel and get support for yourself. Yes we can advise on patterns, likely behavior and treatment for a partner or family member who is a compulsive gambler (CG) but primarily it is to help you through your journey.

I am not sure what you mean by I know it is CG? is it a typo? Did you mean I know it isn’t me? This addiction has a way of not only filling up the one suffering from it but the ones who come into contact with that person to. This is why we always say take care of you first and foremost.

It seems he is moving slowly forward, he wants to get help and he is right that is something he has to do for himself. A hey well done or I’m proud of you for seeing/doing that will go a long way, don’t get to involved listen rather than question when you can.

I am pleased you are going on with this interview and seeing your family at the weekend, thesse are good healthy signs for you. Don’t let the addiction fill you up make space for the joy and pleasure in life and that will keep you strong and ultimately be the best thing for you both.
