    Hi Hopeful,

    thanks for contributing to this thread, it's always helpful to hear of people's interactions with counselling services. As a gambling counselor and moderator I can only respond with surprise and outrage that you were told to just stop. I would feel hurt and invalidated and it's a comment that doesn't seem to respect your experience of battling this destructive issue. However, I'm also pleased to hear that you're finding this forum and Gamber's Annonymous helpful.
