I recently stopped talking to my mother all together because of her gambling addiction. She has three kids and a great job but surprising has never really been able to provide for us. She has taken money from me via accounts stole and pawned my things took my scholarship money and etc. It makes me feel unworthy, unloved, and empty because she's the only parent that i have. Over the christmas break she went to jail for writing alot of bad checks and on christmas as i talk to her over the phoned vowed that she would seek help. Well that never happened she came home and continued to gamble and spend all her money to the point that she didnt get my two brothers anything for christmas. I found out that she was lying about not having any money and was fed up. i told her that i was never going to speak to her again until she sought help. My question is: Is there another alternative to this situation? Was I wrong? How can I get through to her? Have you ever been in this situation with your family? I just need to understand why this happens so i wont be so hard on her. Thank you

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
