I posted the other night at a moment when I was feeling very low..My husband of 35 years is a compulsive gambler and I am co-dependent ..I was feeling at the complete end of the rope..He {cg husband} had been gone for 2 days and nights gambling..with absolutely no concern about what could be happening at home..I didn't know exactally how to post and ran right over someone elses post..Maggalisa's that is..Bless her heart, she was just so sweet about it and gave me some very good advice and encouragement..Today I called around and found a coda group..There isn't one in the small town I live it..But I can drive to the nearby city..about 30 minutes away..I called and talked to contact person and I feel like this is a huge step I took toward finding some help for myself..I am so tired of being a doormap and letting someone who is supposed to be committed to me run over me and take advantage..Thank you everyone for everything you post..Last night I read tons of posts on here and you have no idea how much it helped knowing that I'm not the only one in the world and there is help..Thank God...

Welcome MaxineM:

It is truly a wonderful site.

You can also search older threads by using key words: addiction, gambling, etc.

I am sure that you will find wonderful support here.

(((Maxine))) Welcome...and congratulations for taking the first step. I'm glad you found this site...it will be a great source of support to you. Don't feel bad if you don't know the rules yet, we are all pretty supportive of one another, and we've all made mistakes along the way. No big deal. I'll keep you and your hubby in my prayers...may you find strength and peace.

((Maxine)) welcome, glad you like this site, it is great, huh!

I have been here for over 3 years and log in everyday, its my inspiration and my mentor! meeting and chatting with so many people who all have some type of codependency issues. Its a life saver for me.

Good luck with your Coda meeting, they are great too! and keep coming back!!
