The only requirement for gamblers anonymous membership is a desire to stop gambling.
Regardless of who a person is, or how grave their emotional, legal or financial complications may be, Gamblers Anonymous weelcomes anyone who demonstrates a desire to stop gambling.
For membership, it is not necessary that one pay dues or sign a pledge. Those who have returned to gambling are especially encouraged to attend meetings and get help because it is the desire to stop gambling – not the abstinence – that is required for membership.
Expressing a desire to stop gambling doesn’t always mean that the member can overcome the strong urge to gamble, but nevertheless, it is the desire that is the requirement.
