    Hi; I am here because I need opinions on an issue that has been plaguing me for a while now, and just need help from other folks living with gamblers. I think my partner is starting to show signs of CG. She used to go to the casino once in a while, and spend maybe $20. In the last few months, she has started going to the casino two to three times a week and easily spends $60 each trip. The problem is, she doesn’t see any issue in this. I on the other hand, am fed up with it.
    I should say right here that I hate casinos. I am totally anti-gambling; I dislike tables, slots and making bets on anything. I was raised this way, so I know I may be a bit biased. But am I right to fear my girlfriend is on the tracks to CG? I am willing to compromise with her on how often she goes to the casino and how much she spends, but she won’t hear of it. She has been abusive in the past, so I am a bit wary how and what I say.
    Another issue I have with her gambling is the fact that we both barely make any money thanks to the economy. We can’t even afford a home so we rent off her parents. So I feel the money she has been spending at the slots should be helping pay off debts and saving up for our own place. I am the only one doing that at the moment, and it’s starting to make me feel like it’s pointless.
    Anyway, do I legitimately have an issue here, or am I jumping the gun? I just need someone to help steer me in the right direction. Thanks.
