I agree, Steven. Non CGs don’t understand . How could they possibly get inside the mind of a CG with all the distorted thinking, all the irrational plans and the plethora of mixed emotions.
That’s why this Site has a Family and Friends Forum. And GA has the «sister» group called Gamanon, to support and inform non CGs (our «victims») about strategies they can use to protect themselves from the fall out of gambling.
Maybe your parents/girlfriend would benefit from checking out these groups.
You rightly pointed out Steven, that we can fool ourselves.
We also become expert at fooling others!
