Affected people share their story

Most Gamblers feel a relief, when they break the silence and talk to a person of trust. The burden of secrecy and lies breaks down and allows perspectives on solutions. Being scared of the reaction of their loved ones and feeling ashamed, often people don't dare sharing. In reality in most of the cases relatives and loved ones react in a positive way when asked for help.
