I fought hard against Gamanon.  It ‘wasn’t for me’, I saw it as it wasn’t my issue and to be brutally honest, at the time just the mention of anything gambling related- even GA or Gamanon – made my blood boil, I was so angry.  My partner had been in GA for 5 years when I realised, I was still angry, bitter, unreasonable and I was miserable.

Nearly 4 years ago, I decided I was fed up of being miserable.  My gambler stopping gambling wasn’t making me happy or back to the person I once was so I decided Gamanon was the last resort.  It was the best decision I ever made.  I get to focus on myself and not my gambler and through working the 12 step programme, my life is much happier, calmer and my mind clearer.
