Please help! I am debating whether to tell my husband about my gambling addiction. Timely must be considered because he just lost his mother and I don't want to put anything else on him right now. I have been married for almost 28 years. Two years ago, I started casually playing the slots. I would go to the casino no more than twice a month. I would win and leave. Then, started going on my day off, which is every Friday. I used cash advanced on two credit cards. Eventually, I ran out of money. Then, I took money out of our house account. I put it back when I got paid. Sometime around June of 2017, I realized I have a gambling problem. I tried to stop but was unsuccessful. Fast forward to last night. I went to the casino and lost $1700 from our house account. Now, I am worried/scared my husband will notice the money missing before I can put it back. I want to stop gambling. I am tired of living this secret life. I have been living pay check to pay check for the last 6 months. Every time I get extra cash, I go to the casino. Enough is enough. I want to stop. I want to tell my husband. HELP!!! HELP!!! HELP!!!

I have not had a lot of response to my add, also I announced it on face book. But I...
well, I banned myself from the online gambling site that was taking over my life. It feels so freeing!!! I am not a slave to chasing the next “big win” after so many big losses and than losing it all again. Here’s to a gambling free life
