    I know I’m a bit late to the thread, but I could have written much of your post 5 years ago. Where are we now? Going around in circles. My biggest regret? Ever giving him money and supporting his family bailing him out. A smaller rock bottom back then may have meant we aren’t still racking up debt now, and with a baby in tow.
    I really think it could be worth setting aside some savings of your own that he doesn’t know about and never giving him money, ever. It’s so hard supporting a problem gambler, it can destroy your own mental health. Hoping your journey is shorter than mine.
