      I need help, after about a year of being clean I slipped and had a bet, not a big one a 10p correct score yankee. The problem is not so much the bet but the fact I lied to my wife about it, she has been nothing but supportive about my addiction and has always had one rule and one rule only… if I ever want a bet to to tell her first and then have the bet anyway.
      I was working away and we had a discussion about whether or not I was feeling the need to gamble, I told her if I did it would be a correct score yankee, she said if I wanted to do it it was OK, I had the bet and didn’t say anything, in my mind I had the green light to go ahead and do it and I thought it was ok to do so but the reality is I never actually told her I was going to. It was the only bet I had and I neither did it again or felt the need to do it again but the lie has hurt her deeply and shattered any trust she had left for me. I feel dirty and ashamed and I’ve probably lost my marriage over a £1.10 bet.
      I have used this site before and found it very helpfull and I’m basically just reaching out for some help again.
      Any feedback orcadvice would be very much appreciated
