Hi, I'm new here

Hi, I am my daughter’s carer. She is struggling with cannabis and gambling addiction, and has 2 children under the age of 6. I was advised to contact this website to find some support. I would appreciate some advise from anyone in a similar position.
She has had CBT but finds her addiction difficult to fight. It is heartbreaking.

Hi Helen,

Rly sorry to hear about your daughters addiction, and the circumstance youre in. But I am glad you joined the forum! I dont have advice as such but i did want to give you some potentially useful links.

Carers UK are running online weekly meet ups for carers to take some time for themselves and chat to other carers. Feel free to join if you’d like to and there’s no pressure to share anything you don’t want to. I’m sure you’ll find others in a similar position to yourself.
