Robert grew up with an alcoholic mum and his parents separated when he was quite young. Rejected by his mum in his early teens Robert went on to become a compulsive gambler and eventually found help in Gamblers Anonymous.
To deal with effects of the family disease of alcoholism he joined Al-Anon Family Groups and began working on his resentments, which he discovered, were initiated by his fear and guilt. He began developing trust and honesty and managed to reconnect with his family and friends.
If someone else's drinking is causing you a problem then you can phone the Al-Anon Family Groups helpline in Australia on 1300 252 666 or go online at al-anon.org.au.
