      Hello and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy friends & family forum. This forum will provide you with warmth and understanding from your peers.
      You are also encouraged to join one of the regular friends & family groups.
      Please check the Support Groups page to find out more about the groups and when they’re running.
      Now that you have introduced yourself we hope that you’ll feel welcomed to the forums 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 in the UK then please take extra care to make sure that nothing you say inadvertently identifies someone. 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

      PS: Let me just remind you to take a look at our privacy policy and terms and conditions so you know how it all works!

      Hi Sandra

      You ask ‘what did I do wrong’ but you have given me nothing else to work with and I want to support you.

      Nothing you have said or done will have made your loved one gamble. When a compulsive gambler places a bet, the consequences of the action are his responsibility.

      Please write again and talk to me and/or join an F&F group where we can communicate in real time.

      Don’t struggle on alone, everything you say will be understood.
