3. I have a friend in ACOA who began her recovery in GA - Gamblers Anonymous

ACOA is Adult Children of Alcoholics - and Dysfunctional Families. I don't know if there's a GA meeting near you - you can look online - but I know that my friend does a lot of phone meetings. She usually just listens. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

5. I gamble a shit-load.

I am in control as to paying bills on time and meeting all responsibilities. I estimate that I pissed away $600K over the years. I have a steady retirement income but no savings.

Depression is a factor.

8. Please get to Gambler's Anonymous. As soon as possible. PLEASE...

On line, On phone, or in person. The people at GA have been there, where you are, and can help. Make the call today. Here is a link to a key page in their program. Hit the link, and on that page there is a phone number that can help. If you read the page, you will know if you need to go to those meetings.
