    I would value advice on how to help a friend who spends a great deal of time in bed when going through low points when he can be quite aggressive in his manner

    Hello Kitch

    Thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy friends and family forum. This forum will provide you with warmth and understanding from your peers.

    Feel free to use the friends and family group, you’ll find the times for these if you click on the “Group times” box on our Home page. Now that you have introduced yourself you’ll find that many of the people you meet here have already read your initial introduction and they’ll welcome you in like an old friend 🙂

    If you’re the friend or family member of someone who is either in, or has been through, the GMA residential programme please take extra care to make sure that nothing you say in groups, or on our forums, inadvertently identifies that person. Even if your loved one isn’t connected with GMA, please don’t identify them either directly or indirectly just in case they decide to use the site themselves.

    You’ll find a lot of advice on this site, some of which you’ll follow, some you won’t…but that’s ok because only you fully understand your
    situation and what’s best for you and the people you love. So, take the support you need and leave the advice you don’t because it all comes from a caring, nurturing place 🙂

    We look forward to hearing all about you!

    Take care

    The Gambling Therapy Team

    Hi Kitch
    Your post doesn’t mention gambling and I am therefore not sure what support you are seeking – this is a forum is for friends and family who are seeking to support a loved one with a gambling addiction.
    There could be many reasons why your friend spends a lot of time in bed when going through low points and there could be many reasons why he could be aggressive. If you have reason to believe that these behaviours are as the result of gambling then please post again and let me know what leads you to this belief.
