    Hello everybody,
    Coming here and support each others is a big step that can help you realize that you are not alone. That you can trust and talk about how you feel. How things are going? Are you joining groups and/or talking to a friend about your recovery?

    Hello Bill and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums.
    You’re right. We’re talking about a vicious cycle, an addiction. And it’s so common to lose interests, hobbies and also to put relationships at risk. You’re in the right place.

    Hello Kayxo and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums.

    I’m glad to see the steps you’ve made: you came here, you found the courage to talk a little about your difficulties and you started self-excluding yourself. These are all practical and crucial steps that can support you during recovery. And your son can be a big motivation during the process.
