I'm torn, I'm depressed, I'm scared, worried and not looking forward to a future if something doesn't give. I don't know how else to explain to my boyfriend how his gaming has impacted our relationship. I feel alone, all of the problems I feel fall on me. I have 3 children from a previous marriage: ages 16, 12, 8. Expecting a baby girl in November 2012. My children adore him I adore him. When he's not on the pc playing online games. As soon as he wakes up in the morning he's on his gaming. He goes to work for a few hours comes home and goes back to it until he's hungry, then goes back down til dinner time, then comes back up for dinner and falls asleep between 8 and 10 every night. He goes for over a week without bathing. He spends minimal time with us. Our finances now that I had to stop working has decreased by half of our income. He does see but doesn't see if that makes sense. Part of me feels like he really doesn't want to be this way and another part of me feels like he just wants to escape me my children. Online friends are more important than us.... The people that love him. Will our baby feel the same that we feel? Will this ever work? Do I just except it? Or walk away???? This is no way to live. This is just an existence we have were not thriving were not succeeding, were stagnet.
A new book titled The Digitally Compulisve Family has recently been published by one of our members, John Najar

I have purchased the book and read it. It is an easy read and can be used as a reference manual. Mr. Najar has provided many tools and suggestions. Very good for parents and family members. Can be used WITH your addicted gamer.
