    just wondering how anyone dealt with breaking up from an ex boyfriend who is a gambling addict, we have a 15 month old together, he still thinks he can try and control me.

    I think the way I dealt with the controlling behaviour (regardless of addiction) is to establish in my head what’s acceptable and what’s not. Have clear boundaries. It’s likely he will push those boundaries and at times the boundaries in your head might appear a little grey but avoid facilitating behaviours you don’t like. The moment you excuse negative behaviour and ‘give in’ then he’ll expect the same the next time. Consistency is key. When you have a better relationship, with a little mutual respect then you can accommodate some give and take.
