12 Hours Of Gaming Per Day, Really

He was emotionally abusive, physically abusive, angry, depressed, boring, unhealthy, dysfunctional, unemployed most of the time and a total online gaming addict for nearly 10 years of our marriage, but not when I met him. When I met him he was, fit, healthy, volunteered, worked two jobs, fun, involved, smiled all the time, enthusiastic, happy, and gorgeous and he didn’t own a computer. Within a year all that changed. He bought a computer. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a non-technical person. I work on a computer every day, but some people can’t control themselves and he was one of them. Some people have addiction tendencies. I tried everything I could to change the scene and the only thing that worked was to leave. He simply chose gaming over me and the kids. I think of all the countless, wasted hour he spent playing games online while our boys were babies, toddlers and now he lives in another state far, far away from his boys. It makes me so very sad for him and for them. W.O.W ruined our lives!

Online Gaming Addiction is like any other addiction. It takes over peoples lives and ruins them.
