  • Been married 10 years to an incredibly sweet man. He loves me more than words could describe. I have never questioned this. I have never questioned and would never think to question if he had been faithful. I know where his heart is. I am not a jealous person in any aspect of my life, except one thing. I am jealous of all the time my husband spends on his video games.I will have to say I know I...
  • I had been with my (ex) boyfriend for 3 years. 2 of these years I lived in a different city where he practically lived with me and he only had an xbox and we had no issues and had a really great relationship. I had known he had been a gamer in the past, as he showed me all the hours he had racked up on WoW.Since moving home, he started playing the game Smite on his computer and this is where all...
  • My husband is addicted. I'm not here to ask "How much is too much?" or to say "I *Think* he has a problem."My husband has a problem. It started 18 months ago. He became addicted to The Hobbit. He started sleeping on the couch. I became a single parent. As he sunk into a greater depression because of my nagging that he was not spending any time with his family and all he did was play his video...

    Deleted my Online Account Today

    Another night staying up until 5 am. Very clear I've little control so I deleted my account. After the morning routine was finished, I began to miss it. By the time dinner hit, I was anxious. It felt like there was a hand squeezing my insides. I try to tell my family about what's going on but get cut off right after the word 'addiction'; however, after they see it hurt my feelings, they return to...

    My son is addicted

    Does anyone else have experience with a child who is addicted? My son is only permitted to play 1.5 hours each weekend day and 1 hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and all he talks about and thinks about is the game. He spends all of his free time reading about the game, texting about the game, and on the computer working up stuff about the game. When he can't play or when his time is up he...
  • My bf claims that playing Destiny on ps4 is his way to cope with his unhappiness within himself. It is his way to escape reality and feel alive. I want him to be happy but it seems like his online buddies (whom he never met) bring him more joy than I can ever do. He is a different person when he engages online. The tone of his voice is different and so is his laugh. I feel like these strangers...

    sick of this group - leaving

    7
    I am so sick of this group and the people on it. This is a support group for people who suffer or think they have a problem. Not whiney spouses or girlfriends complaining that their loved one plays video games. Some people just like games, and there are others like me (yes I'm a woman) who feels like they may have a wrong problem, and you people just sit there are complain like it only hurts you!...

    Hi, My husband and I have been married for 18 years and we have always been best friends....until the Video games came into his life about 2 years ago. He started playing and never stopped. He goes to work and attends a family function (Easter Dinner) etc...but he is ready to get back to his game as soon as possible. He said it helps relieve the stress he feels from work. I understand he has a...
  • Last Guardians has become popular games recently. You play as an adventurer in a magical land, and seek for conquest with your guild. The journey is dangerous and surprised; opponents are tough to defeat. Additionally, the story is full of mysteries and it motivates me to keep going. This game is attractive, and the abilities are undeniably cool! If you like action games you dont want to miss out...

Why is it so much m,ore...
  • Had a talk with the hubs last night about gaming addiction. He says he knows he's an addict and has been one since he was a child. We pull teeth to get his undivided attention. For instance it took 8 years for me to get him to eat at the table 4 days a week, and he still tries to get out of it. But those half hour visits at the table is all we get from him on a consistent basis. Sometimes...

    I've been with my fiance for a very long time. We've been together for 7 years.Video games were never a problem in our relationship.If anything, I'd join in with him every once in a while and play alongside with him. It was recently when he started playing League of Legends.Two of his friends (who are extreme gamers) asked him to play with them. My fiance turned them down, saying that I wouldn't...

He also has an extreme anger problem while playing these games. He has broke at least 3...
