You remind me of my boyfriend and what im dealing with right now with him. We been together for a year now and we are both 26 like you. he has lied to me continuously with the betting and as a girlfriend ive been trying my best to what i can to make sure he stays on the right path. It had gotten to be so bad i check his phone and i have his info for Venmo where hes been trading his money. Listen to me and get help because i know what your girlfriend is feeling and i know you dont mean to do the things that you do but you need to start owning up to what you did and start fixing it. Nothing is going to get better unless you start with YOURSELF. having my boyfriend doing the same thing your doing to her is seriously killing me. We are too young to be dealing with this, on both sides. We have our whole life ahead of us and you letting betting take your future away from you. I’m in the situation where im might be walking away from a man who i know loves me but chooses his addiction over me. Dont let this happen to you. Start going to group meetings before its too late.
