I have contemplated posting for a while, but am at a point where I could really use some guidance from anyone who has been through a similar situation with a partner with GA. I am a 26 year old female. My boyfriend of a year has a gambling addiction, which I have known for the last 6 months. He has gambled for about 10 years, and although I have known for a while now I have only recently come to realise how much this addiction has taken over his life. Because of his gambling he has no savings, takes out fast money loans, has distanced himself from his family, and has never been able to love someone because of how gambling dulls his emotions.
I care for him deeply and want to support him, and as some of you will know when you are involved it is hard to remove yourself from your emotions despite logic. However is it naive and ignorant to stay?
