Video game addiction. He says its not real. But he plays every day after work for 7 hrs and took the past 4 days of work off to play his games. The hr a day hes not playing his game he watches videos online on strategies on how to beat a monster better or faster or whatever.

Ds is just learning to crawl and tripped over the controller cord and unplugged it causing dh to die in his game. He bent over and screamed so loud at ds that he spit all over his face.

this marriage is gone. Im leaving tomorrow while hes at work.

Take the gaming system and destroy it. I'm all for giving DH the time he needs to relax but 7 hours a day and skipping work to play is ridiculous.

Im not going to do that. I dont know the outcome. Just with any addiction thats escalating with violence

Holy crap! Our baby girl accidently opened the Xbox and grabbed the disc holder, my husband had to take it completely apart to fix it, he laughed and said accidents happen. Your poor baby. :(

Wow! I've never met someone with a video game addiction before. I play my fair share of video games, but nothing like that. I'm glad you're making the smart choice to leave before it gets worse...especially if he doesn't believe he has a problem.
