My bf is a compulsive gambler that led to compulsive lying. We've been together for a very long time. We have twin 5 yr. Aug 12 he admitted to me he has a problem with gambling. Along with that came the truth of many lies. For the last year he lied about a job, had stolen a lot of money from me and my sister and he has also stolen money from our children's piggy banks. I understand the disease of addiction I have been around it my whole life worth my father. I want to be there for him, but my heart is breaking knowing he not only stole from me but our kids.
He has moved out and moved to his mother's a few hours away. We talk every day and he says he's getting help and that he's doing everything he could so he can get his family back. But how can I go by trusting him? He cries to me how sorry he is and he wants this help. He came clean by himself and I had no idea this was going on.
Can compulsive gamblers really get better? Thank you. After he signs the form, he is not allowed to go to the casino anymore for lifetime. If the catch him, then he will be in jail and pay money I did it and I did not gamble anymore. I guess I have but don't want to admit I have a gambling addiction.
I have banned myself from the casino and still went. When my year was up I continued to go. I play lottery almost every day that I have money. I have not stolen lied or cheated for money. I make decent money and I live by myself.
I now have found some internet cafes which are my latest thing. I love the high when I hit but I have missed a couple bill payments on items. I have a new car but my credit absolutely stinks. I have filed bankruptcy 3 times and still continue. I have put myself into GA. But it makes me. Want to gamble even more.

I was in Al-Anon for 10 years and then he quit drinking. I don't know if I can handle another addiction.
He doesn't touch me anymore, but has thrown things and broken the glass in the oven door. I want to leave, but I am disabled and can't work. I know he would not give me any money it's happened before. Don't think I can do this. I may get a lawyer. Hi, My sister and I have known for a few years now that my 75 year old mother had an addiction to the penny slot machines at the casino.
We had no idea till two years ago how bad it was. My father passed away in and he left her pretty well off. They both worked. She gets enough to live comfortably and put money away in savings. My sister has confronted her about her gambling and mom lies about it. It is her treat, her night out, and she always wins, so she says.
My sister helps her handle her affairs and she started monitoring my mother's accounts online without my mother knowing about it. My mother started badgering us for money. My husband and I make mortgage payments on her secondary home on a rent-to-own basis.
We also pay the house insurance and property taxes, to her. We both are not rich, we both work and it takes much of our income to make those payments. I found out from my sister that she is thinking of selling the house we are paying on. She didn't tell us about it. She is desperate for money to pay the upcoming property taxes. That is when my sister found out she had almost no money in the bank, but my sister found out that my mother had gone to the casino and spent over three hundred dollars there because there was an ATM withdrawal she made at the casino.
Then the next day she deposits hundreds of dollars into her checking account. We think she is taking cash advances out of her credit cards. My husband went over to mother's house and found about 10 credit cards spread out on the kitchen counter. My mother also had taken to spending all nighters at the casino. And she never misses senior Wednesday. My mother went to the casino Friday, deposited a lot of money into her checking account Saturday morning and when my sister checked her account activity yesterday Sunday , there was only twenty seven dollars.
My mother called her Sunday evening and demanded the money she claims my sister owed her. My sister owes her nothing. She threatened to sue my sister. My sister wanted to her to admit she had a gambling problem. My mother denies it and stated that she would have to mortgage her house and sell her stocks to have money to pay the upcoming property taxes. My sister called the casino my mother goes to and they told her that barring getting power of attorney over my mother's affairs, the only way to get her to stop spending her money on the slots was for mother to go over to the casino, admit she had a problem and have them ban her voluntarily from the casino.
That only made my mother angrier and she threatened to disown all of us. I am glad my husband and I don't have a written contract on the house we were supposed to be making mortgage payments to her. We decided we don't want the house.
There is nothing to stop her from taking out a mortgage on our? As soon as we can afford to, we're cutting our losses and moving. I was advised by my sister to get out of there as soon as possible. My mother will not sell our house from under us, but she can borrow on it. When she called my sister, there was real panic in her voice. She needed money, fast. I am beginning to wonder if either the casino or loan sharks are after her for money.
My mother went from a careful manager of her money to someone who couldn't account for why she had no money left over after she got her pensions and social security. She lied about her finances, her gambling and now she has nothing left but the houses, some stocks and her monthly income. She changed her passwords to her online access on one bank and my sister can't monitor that, but she did it to hide the fact she spent her savings. When confronted, she claims she has money in the bank. I have no real advice to add except to watch for changes in behavior and spending habits, and then do a little investigating into where your aged parent is spending their time all of a sudden.
I would check the casinos on Wednesdays, Fridays when they have their all you can eat specials, and of course on the weekends. I would also get access to their account information to check their spending. My sister will not try to get power of attorney. My mother has all her faculties and she is fiercely independent. Right now, we're trying to tell her that if she has some gambling issues, she can talk to us; perhaps we can come up with some solutions.
But she has to admit she has a problem. As far as she is concerned, we are the prob. Hello my friend, I am a survivor as well.. Went through everything as you did.. Now I am searching and looking for inpatients treatment, unfortunately they all costly.. I am done I spent everything I am depressed and wanted to die.. I live here in the sin city u know what that means.. What about my job? That is the only thing I have. Where do I begin? I want so much to stop going to the casino and I can't.
In fact, the main thing that puts teens at risk for gambling problems is influence from family members and friends. Some people gamble simply because they're bored or lonely. Some teens who develop a gambling problem say they gamble as a way to escape or to avoid problems at home. The trouble is, gambling may start out as a casual distraction.
But because it works on the risk and reward part of our brains, people can end up addicted. Some people have a higher chance of becoming addicted to gambling. Those who have trouble controlling impulses, like people with ADHD, can be at greater risk for developing an addiction.
So can people whose personalities mean they enjoy taking risks. This doesn't mean people who have these issues will automatically get addicted to gambling, of course. Most don't.
