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.

I was in the same boat about 6 months ago. I would watch my phone all day, betting on sporting events I knew nothing about(just to have a bet out there). It gave me a rush, but my life was crumbling I racked up a lot of debt. It wasn’t the life I wanted but I just couldn’t stop. My first step was to see a therapist to help me understand what triggers led me to gambling and reasons from my childhood among other things started this addiction.For a while it was difficult, I would think about going back to it when I was stressed or depressed. I understand the darkness that gambling can have on you and your relationship. I don’t know if you have access to a therapist but if it is an option for you I definitely recommend it as a good way to start the process of overcoming the addiction. Peace and Love.
