Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who have joined together to do something about their own gambling problem and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.

MEETINGS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS. No appointment is needed to attend a meeting, just turn up. The most common meetings for compulsive gamblers are main meetings. 

  • 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.
  • Online Meetings
  • 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 >>
