"We ... hope that in this fellowship you will find the help and friendship we have been privileged to enjoy. We would like you to feel that we understand as perhaps few can. We, too, were lonely and frustrated, but here we have found that there is no situation too difficult to be bettered and no unhappiness to great to be lessened."

WHAT IS GAM-ANON?

    Gam-Anon is a fellowship of men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem. It is founded on spiritual principles.

WHY DO WE HAVE GAM-ANON?

    Men and women who have been affected by the gambling problem have found living with the gambling problem to be a devastating experience.

WHAT DO WE ACCOMPLISH IN GAM-ANON?

    We attempt to find the answers to such questions as:

    1. What is my role as the spouse (parent, loved one) of a compulsive gambler?
    2. How can I be of the greatest help to the person who joins Gamblers Anonymous?
    3. If my gambler continues to gamble, how can I live with this problem?
    4. How can I learn to accept and understand God's will for me?

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FINDING THE ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS SUCH AS THESE:

GAM-ANON IS FOR YOU!
