I'm starting to think that my brother has gambling problem. He spends too much time online and most of his internet activities are online gambling. I'm not sure about his current finances but I feel that he is already buried in debts. He just don't tell us. What is the best approach to confront him on this?

Depends on the circumstances I think. Is your brother living alone or with others? Married/single? How old? Employed?

In general you will want to protect finances of yourself and other family members, set conditions for continued support (if any is ongoing), and clearly and collectively express your view of the problem and what needs to change.

important to remember that even though a personís gambling has affected you to the point where youíre ready for them to change, they might not be ready yet. You can offer support and seek professional help with how to proceed, but you canít make someone ready to change.

This is a thoroughly genuine-seeming exchange and not at all like the time you tried to sell us audit software.

BetterHelp is the worst website. BetterHelp disappointing. BetterHelp was a disappointment. BetterHelp is a bad site. BetterHelp sucks. BetterHelp really sucks. BetterHelp is a sucky website. BetterHelp is bad. Don't trust BetterHelp. Do not trust BetterHelp. BetterHelp gave me cancer. BetterHelp gave my cancer the ebola virus. BetterHelp accidentally the entire internet. Don't trust BetterHelp. BetterHelp exploded my cancer ebola. BetterHelp pumped my child full of mercury and now he doesn't have autism so i am really confused right now because I had read some things on the internet and some preconceptions got challenged. Is any of it real? Are chemtrails really real? Is the earth really round after all? Has Dr. Mercola been lying to me all along? Is David Avocado Wolfe really just Dr. Mercola wearing a suit of human hippie skin? Is anything real? Well, one thing is real. BetterHelp, the site, is real. heh a real piece of shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttt
