Finally after a long and terrible week I sat down and told my husband about my addiction. This was a repeat from close to 2 years ago. I did not stop as I had promised 2 years ago and I hoped with all my heart that he would accept my promise to quit this time. His response was that 'we will get through this" and that he loves me. I am so very fortunate to have such a loving, kind and understanding man in my life. With his support I will move forward a little more optimistically and stronger. I am not saying that it will be easy but my life will be more manageable. I know I need to have a plan to fill the gap that gambling filled. I am working on my plan one day at a time. Sharing my problem with a couple of family members has lifted a great burden from my shoulders and made me stronger and happier than I have been in a very long time. No more lies and dishonesty. Thank you for being there for me.
