Hi. I am wondering if there are any groups that meet on a regular basis to discuss and suuport each other as they struggle to give up gambling?
AA do it, and form buddy systems. I would consider it if I could count on confidentiality.

Hi Leo there are GA groups in NZ, you can call the gambling helpline 0800 654 655 to find the one nearest you.

Hello, I just did my first posting this morning. It sure helps to read about others that are going through the same thing. I really need a buddy system too! Yesterday I gambled, so today I am feeling all the remorse and total burnout.

Hello Leo, I live in Northern California, USA. Before I moved up here I didn't even know gambling was legal in this state. There are five casinos within a fifty mile radius of my home. Maybe, I need to move.
