Can I Ever Trust Him Again?

Iv only been with my boyfriend a year but in that year we totally fell for each other, we moved into a rented house and everything was perfect. However he has a gambling problem, which he now admits, however I dont think he realises just how bad. He has spent thousands of my savings and we have a few loans- which we are now paying back. People who know about it think he has conned me and doesnt actually care about me. I dont know if this is right or are they just trying to be protective of me..Its all come out now all the things he has lied about how do I trust him again. I cant decide if hes just a liar and will never change or if he deals with his addiction that will take that side of him away? He is getting help now with his gambling. any advice would be appreciated

Hi omg I know 100% how your feeling I am ten millions % in the same shoes as you!!! Apart from I threw my bf out and made him get his own place hasn't gambled for 3 months then started again to get out of trouble now hooked again! You need to be strong assertive and calm with him! He needs help!
