FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS of people who gamble are often caught between a rock and a hard place, concerned about enabling the person who gambles, while also feeling anguished about standing back and seeing them go without. Seeing someone you love struggling with an addiction can be heartbreaking, at times you can feel helpless, frustrated, and angry and you simply can’t trust the word of the person you care about.

If you are lying awake at night worrying, if you are bankrupting yourself financially to help a person who gambles, or if you are sacrificing your own health and wellbeing, seek support from a counsellor who can help you to asset your boundaries and look after yourself. We provide free counselling to the family and friends of problem gamblers so please contact PM Counselling on 0408 679 351 or check us out at
