He Doesnt Think He Has A Problem

I have been with my boyfriend for over 5 years.. I love him a lot and I know that will never change as much as ive tried to walk away I cant. We have broken up 5-6 times in the last 5 years and its always because I resent his gambling. I have a 6 year old son, my priorities are my son, cooking, cleaning, working full time, and being the best mother possible. His priorities is working nights (poker dealer), hanging out with friends, and gambling. He doesnt think its a problem because he has his bills paid, hasn't sold anything of his to pay for his gambling and isnt going into debt because of it.. He goes every day, if not every day it is at least 5 times a week. He can easily throw away $1500 a night and then say its ok cause he was up from the night before.. he says for example.. "I lost $1500, but I wont $1700 the night before so im still up". It just makes me so angry that he will pay $50 towards half our cable bill and then go gamble $100's away. Like you really cant pay the WHOLE cable bill one time? Or even offer to? Or say hey do we need groceries and fill the fridge with groceries before going to play? I mean I make a really good salary I can comfortably take care of my son and myself but what about getting ahead? What about the future, every time I leave he promises to change, says hes not even that bad, says he will only go once a week as its his 'hobby'. How do I get him to really change, relaize that other things are more important in life and if you want to marry me you have to quit gambling..
