MY BOYFRIEND HAS A *MAJOR* GAMBLING ADDICTION!!!!
Hi HL, Just thought I would update you on my situation. If a guy is urinating in a casino floor because he doesnt want to lose his seat at the blackjack table, is that a micro or macro agression? I love him but he thinks it's not a problem. As I said before, you need to help him break the pattern. These activities also mean I have goals, meet new people, and feel connected to others.

We live in California and his dad lives in Las Vegas. His dad and stepmom have had money problems unrelated to gambling as far as I know for quite some time. My boyfriend sends them money to help them. We plan to get We plan to get married in the future, but I can't stand that he wants to go to the casino to make extra money. He has a stable job, but wants to gamble to make money to help them when they are in need while planning our future together. I've been with him a little over a year but I can't handle this.
I love him but he thinks it's not a problem. He wants to convince me that he can bring money in this way because he's good at Poker. He watches Poker on TV and he's all into it. When I met him he had a subscription to gambling magazines. He stopped doing it, but lately it keeps coming up and now he resents me because I'm not supporting it.
He says I don't understand that he doesn't go to gamble. That he goes to make money - He makes it sound like a job. He also says it's his way of "distressing. I'm 30 years old so I'm in "nesting" mode.

My boyfriend has been an "on" "off" gambler for as long as ive known him. He has never admitted that he has a gambling problem, but over the past year he has finally accepted that he is a gambler and its getting worse and I don't know what to do next.
I knew straight away he had gambled it. I came home from the bank and went mental at him. He didn't try to deny it tears just filled his eyes and he started shaking, and he told me how he had been gambling for years and he couldn't stop. After hours of talking we decided that I would handle the finances, id have all the money, bank cards etc I changed the pin number and he promised that he wouldn't gamble or go into the bookies.
That was 2 months ago, I got paid today after a tight Xmas That feeling came back again So here I am, at my wittsend not knowing what to do now So any advice would be fantastic I already called Gamcare and they have put me in contact with NECA and I am going to councelling sessions once a week.
But I cant help but feeling why do I need the councelling? Hi,im a gambler and i know how you can help him,his the one who needs to be in here ,talking ,speaking the truth,be open mind with his sickness,cause thats what we got,a stupid disease,i stoppped for a year,and then in christmas i gave my family a surprise,a disgusting surprise,ive robbed from them,my own daughter,my own nethew,my wife,my sister,and in that moment all you think as an addict ,i want my money back,i can do it,i can do it Thank you for replying to me, It has eased slightly just by talking about it.
There is no one I can really speak to about this so it has helped massively. So I believe he wants to but he gives me the impression that he cant no matter what he does. We have a joint bank account, but I have access to the bank card but he is still gambling online. Is there anyway I can get the card changed or remove him off the account? I make sure all bills are paid and on a sunday when he gets paid he gives his wages to me but im putting them in the bank and hes gambling it.
Gambling is legally restricted in the United States, but its availability and participation is increasing. Critics of gambling [ who? Others argue [ who? According to the American Gaming Association , legal gambling revenues for were as follows: Games of chance came to the British American colonies with the first settlers. Early on, the British colonies used lotteries from time to time to help raise revenue.
For example, lotteries were used to establish or improve dozens of universities and hundreds of secondary schools during the 18th and 19th centuries. Lotteries continued to be used at the state and federal level in the early United States. Gambling businesses slowly developed in various communities. The lower Mississippi River valley became a hotbed of gambling activity with New Orleans emerging as the nation's leading gambling center. A wave of hostility against gambling in the mid 19th century pushed gambling activity onto boats in the Mississippi River and toward younger territories in the West.
Anti-gambling forces in the northeast put an end to lotteries in those locations and this trend spread to some other parts of the country. The rise of railroads caused passenger travel on the Mississippi to decline, heavily damaging the riverboat casinos' revenue. The increasing legal pressures on gambling gradually created opportunities for illegal operations. During the California Gold Rush , San Francisco became a populous town flush with aspiring prospectors.
By the s, the new city had overtaken New Orleans as the gambling capital of the U. As California gradually strengthened its laws and its policing of gambling, the practice went underground. Lotteries and other forms of gambling would be revived temporarily in the South and in other areas during Reconstruction.
Gambling was extremely popular on the frontier during the settlement of the West ; nearly everyone participated in games of chance. Citizens of the West viewed gamblers as respected members of society who worked at an honest trade. By the early 20th century, gambling was almost uniformly outlawed throughout the U. Gambling became a largely illegal activity, helping to spur the growth of the mafia and other organized crime.
