Boyfriend Who Has A Gambling Addiction

I have been dating my boyfriend for the past 9 years. We started living together about 2 years ago. We have had some trust issues in the past where he has cheated and lied. This past year we haven't been communicating, only having sex once every 3 months, and he falls asleep on the couch every night.
A few days ago I told him that I wasn't happy and thought he should move out for awhile and we take a break. He said that he wanted to talk to me because he recently got fired and he has a gambling addiction. I'm mostly furious because 1. He was pretending to go to work, and 2. I had no idea he was gambling.
After talking with friends, they told me he has borrowed thousands of dollars in the past and his checks keep bouncing when he pays money back.
Not sure what to do. I still want to break up but he's making me feel bad because he's hitting rock bottom and has no where to go. I will always love him but I don't want to have to babysit him and watch his every move. I tried that after he cheated and we were both miserable.
