Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for reading the article and for sharing your personal experience.

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend and I send my condolences.

Please know that there are resources that can help in dealing with grief, including this article published by the American Psychological Association: https://www.apa.org/topics/grief.

There are also many resources available to help people who are dealing with gambling problems, including this page from the Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/compulsive-gambling/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355184

In addition, our "Addiction Resources" link on the right side of this page provides information and tools to help people who might be concerned about their own gambling or gambling among loved ones.

Best Regards,
