    Need guidance on how to support

    Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:46 am

    Hey everyone

    My partner has just told me he's struggling with gambling. I'm not hurt or anything , I'm just worried and I'm confused where to even start to help.

    Any advice?

    Read many of the stories in the forum to get an understanding of the struggleS of gamblers and partners, family and friends affected ... (apologises for this round of porn spam though... it is often quickly rectified ) .-.

    All the best for your and your partners journey

    Hi Pmgt,

    Its Sherpa09 here, well done on reaching out. It sounds as though you're going through a difficult time in trying to support your partner and can understand how concerning this must be for you . As Mona mentioned, the best place to start would be to have a read through other peoples stories to get a further understanding of how they have been able to navigate their own struggles. If you're in need of further resources you can find some here in the gamblers help website > https://gamblershelp.com.au/

    Apologies for the unwanted spam, our team is working strongly to rectify this and ensure ongoing safety on the forum.

    You've shown great strength in accessing the forum today and encourage you to continue to use this platform for ongoing support, take care :)

    Sherpa09.
