Gamblers Anonymous

Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women with the common goal to recover from their gambling problem. Membership is open to anyone with a desire to stop gambling.

Gamblers Anonymous groups are self-supporting through our own contributions.

Gamblers Anonymous is completely independent with the primary purpose to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers to do the same.

We are convinced that gamblers of our type are in the grip of a progressive illness. Over any considerable period of time we get worse, never better. 

  • We are, in most cases, unwilling to admit that we are real problem gamblers.
  • We often have a history of failed attempts to stop gambling.
  • We have learnt that the first step to recovery is to acknowledge the problem.
  • We have lost our ability to control our gambling. 
  • We also know that no real compulsive gambler ever regains control and needs the support of an organisation like ours.
