My husband has a gambling problem. He is ready to stop and I believe that he can, but he has fallen off the wagon a few times. It breaks my heart to watch him struggle and I know he's trying but it's so difficult. I try to be supportive, but his actions hurt not just him, or our finances, but they hurt me too. I guess the thing I'm really scared of is loosing him to this addiction. I dont know how to help, or how to get control over our life together. I'm so scared all the time, and the worst part is that I feel like the trust is gone. I love him so much, and I just dont know how I can help or how I can let him know that he's loved and that I believe and support him. I tell him every day that I know he can do this, that he can make the difficult choices that are part of recovery, that he's loved and that I am always here for him, but I still feel so helpless. Does it get easier? Am I always going to live in fear of his gambling and the possibility of it destroying the only person in my life that means anything at all to me?
