    Wow Kerry.. you really have a lot on your plate at the moment and I really feel for you.This gambling addiction is crippling in more ways than one and I really hope you can help your son .Counselling is such a good thing even though it is really hard at first but together you will succeed. Makes me even more determined to beat the habit.Good luck Kerry and keep us posted on your progress

    Dear Kerry, your post has left a huge impact on me and I'm sure others who have read your latest post. Gambling has really had an intergenerational effect on so much of your family, it really is difficult to rationalise what has happened.

    That your son receives support for his gambling issues is of course crucial and please private message any of the forum moderators if you'd like information about what counselling services are available to you.

    Oh Kerry, there is often positivity to be found ☺️ I read your story with great envy. As sick and unkind as it is, I envy that you have 2 people very close to you that you can talk to in full about your addiction who will completely understand.
    You and your son can most definitely fight this together and what great support you will be for each other. Stay strong 💪🏼☺️
