My Husband Is Addicted To Game

My husband spends more than 10 hours a day for playing game in his room everyday.
After dinner he goes back to his game and comes to bed after 4 am. He donesn't do any exercise at all. He is over weight. He avoids social life.

I don't know how to stop him spending so much time for playing game.. He doen't listen to anybody. I go to bed just by myself every nights. I feel lonely.

omg... please, please if you want to... please message me. i didn't think anyone else out there had a husband who spent so many hours a day on games / tv .... my husband spends a min of 16 hrs daily on games, he is a recovering drug addict, but he doesn't work, he doesn't do anything but watch me work and play games.... i never thought i'd see another woman say they're husband is like mine...

if you ever want to talk, please, please do message me.... thank you so much for sharing this....

We have exactly the same thing:(my husband spend more time on his game than me..very lazy and irresponsible

I can actually say that I am an on and off video game addict. Mine is from boredom and trying to escape reality. I was this way since I was a little kid but I found that as I got older I would tune in and tune out when ever life becomes too stressful. The problem is that it becomes a vicious cycle because you play because reality sucks but your reality gets worse and worse as you play more games. I would say that at least for me I find it helpful to just remove the temptation and after enough time you stop thinking about it. I don't know if this helps at all but it is my experience. Just remember that life is too short, so why not be happy?

My husband has been addicted to his xbox for the past year and a half. Im very supportive of him having his down time. After all i have my down time on the computer. Unfortanately he takes it beyond what it should be. When it interferes with your time and even the time with his chidren ( if you have any), then it becomes an issue, ive talked to my husband. Sometimes times he listens. Sometimes he doesnt. So i just go on. Lately i havent been arguing. Ive been using this time to think about myself. Go give yourself a pedicure, do something for YOU while he choosing to ignore you....sorry i cant give you better advice!

i feel for you; I used to have a live-in boyfriend like this...mine admitted being a computer addict and had no plans to i kicked him out. Does your husband have a job? You need to talk to him and get him to see how you feel.

Can you talk him into giving up hia game for a little while for sex? How long has this been going on? Is it just a new game or something they is going on for a long time now?
