    KEvening guys,

    I am new here but to cut a long story short. My ex has a very bad a gambling addiction he lies in debt late payments which has caused me charges and last week he didn’t come home. His mum was worried sick.

    I have stopped access am I wrong?

    I don’t think he is stable and a few years ago he tried to kill himself. He is making me like rubbish.

    Any advice would be great xx

    sorry if I haven’t understood properly, but have you stopped access because of your concerns about his mental health or is it because of the money situation? I think you would be justified in stopping access if you have concerns about your child’s safety (physical and emotional) while they are with him but you’d struggle to justify stopping access if it’s just because you don’t get any money from him (even if it is really annoying!). Don’t want to teach you to suck eggs, just trying to clarify. Either way I think you need professional advice – are your children at school and if so, do they have a family support worker? How about speaking to social services for advice?

    Sorry I was very nervous whilst writing it.

    My heads a mess. Yes I’m worried he isn’t thinking right as this addiction just takes over his life. When he didn’t come last week the police were involved and he just said I’m a grown man and don’t have to tell people where I am or if I’m coming home.

    He just changes and turns nasty.

    I dong want my children to see that side of him. It took me long enough to leave him and I do feel it’s had a massive impact on my oldest girl.

    Thank you for getting back to me x
