I don’t know if you’re aware, but we have an online group specifically for friends and family and it takes place every Tuesday at 20.00 (UK time). The group lasts for an hour and it’s your chance to talk, in confidence, about the difficulties you face as a result of the gambling of someone close to you. This group has been a little quiet of late so I really just wanted to remind ALL of our members, old and new, that it’s still there and we’d love to see people taking advantage of the time set aside just for them!
Talking about something as painful as an addiction can feel really daunting and if you’re reluctant to come and chat to us for this reason I completely understand. However, I assure you, if you do choose to come and talk to us in one of our online groups, forums or on our one to one helpline, you’ll be met with the warmest of welcomes and you’ll be talking to someone who has either been in a similar situation to you, or is trained on the specific issues you face.
I really hope we have the chance to get to know you all soon 🙂
