    Hi Brunotax

    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 Brunotax
    In my opinion you have turned to the right place but please tell us more about yourself and your partner.
    CGs (compulsive gamblers) do lie. They lie when their addiction takes hold of their lives to cover up the shame of their losses, losses which give them a deep sense of failure. Having lied and got away with it once it becomes a way of life. A CG’s memory is usually very poor as their minds are active with addiction 24 hours a day – lying becomes second nature so that when they try and remember anything, their memories are befuddled with untruths – their lies have become their truth.
    I would never suggest to you that you leave your partner or that you stay with him. – I do hope that you will give yourself some time with this forum until you know what it is that ‘you’ want to do. Your partner can change his life, if it wasn’t so I wouldn’t be writing to you.
    Please tell us more so that you can be supported in the way you deserve. Knowledge of his addiction will give you power over it.
    Well done writing your first post
