So they say that it is typical for addicts to move to one addiction to another. For the past few months Cody 19, drug free since November can not stop buying games for his phone. It really is ridiculous. He spends all of his money whenever he gets a chance on these games. We are really sick of it. It is similar to when he had his drug problem. He just said it's better than him having a drug problem. Is it? Of course overspending won't kill you, but he has lost control. I asked him how many other parents that he knows has to stay awake till 12:30 each week so that when his direct deposit goes in, we quickly transfer it to our checking?? This way when he needs money for gas, food whatever I give it to him. Although sometimes he is paid early, like he was yesterday and quickly spent $60 on these games. It is like he has a gambling problem, no control over his spending. Any ideas?
