    I have just told my loved ones that I have a gambling addiction in the last 48 hours.
    I feel like crawling under a rock and hiding forever

    Thank you for trusting me with these feelings. They are some very strong feelings.
    You are very brave to tell them about this, it is such a big step you've taken.
    Now that they know about this, there is one less thing you have to carry alone.
    Are you looking for any support for yourself?

    I am looking for support. I work on a remote mine site, so when I am on site I don't think about gambling. I have started this journey as it's destroying my life, and my relationship with my partner. She is a Dr in Phycology and is standing by me 1 month at a time. We have been together for 17 months now and I have destroyed all the trust she had in me and our relationship.
