This is to all the partners/loved ones of an addict.

I have just found out my husband has relapsed and I have no idea what to do or where to go with this. He has been gambling for around a year again (I know, I'm so stupid for trusting him that I haven't checked) we now have a daughter which we didn't have the 1st time I found out he had an addiction so find it so hard to imagine family life without him. I also know that trust is a huge thing to me and can't see how I'm ever going to trust him again. I can't get the lies out of my head and how good of an actor he is. I have kicked him out tonight because I can't play happy families in front of my daughter today and don't want her to pick up on anything. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated x

I have never joined a forum or chat room before so not sure I have done this right. Can someone please tell me that they can see my above post? 

Devastated wife/mum needing some advice!
