Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problem and help others do the same.
This site offers various aids for the compulsive gambler including a forum, a chat room, literature and most importantly a meeting finder.
Meetings are the core of Gamblers Anonymous and we have meetings every day of the week throughout England, Wales and Ulster.
Main Meetings – These meetings are where compulsive gamblers sit together and help each other through the difficulties of compulsive gambling. There are no counsellors or professionals, just compulsive gamblers.
Mixed Meetings – These meetings are the same as main meetings, but family members and friends are welcome.
Newcomers Meetings – These meetings are ideal if you are new to stopping gambling. They are the same as main meetings, but more focussed towards newcomers.
Steps Meetings – These meetings are better-suited for those who have abstained from gambling for some time. They are focussed on the Twelve Steps of Recovery.
Women-Preferred Meetings – Any compulsive gambler may attend these meetings, but they are more suitable for women.
Open Meetings – Most Groups hold at least one open meeting each year. These are where compulsive gamblers gather with their friends and families to receive recognition for abstaining from gambling for a number of years. These are fantastic, emotional meetings, not to be missed.
Gam-Anon Meetings – These meetings are specifically for the friends and families of compulsive gamblers. Not all Groups have a Gam-Anon meeting, but you can find out which ones do here: Gam-Anon UK & Ireland >>
