Everyone

Am I overreacting?

I can't tell if I'm overreacting to my fiance's gaming habit (WOW) or not.

Our problem is that I'm in graduate school. Whenever I'm studying (which is most of the evening), he plays WOW. When I'm finished studying, he keeps playing. When I go to bed, he'll stop and lay down with me, but then when I fall asleep, he goes back to playing. He claims he can't go to bed when I do, because he works later in the day and if he goes to sleep early, he'll wake up early and then be tired all day long.

just a parent looking for the right answer

My son, 30 years old living on his own, has lots of addiction problems - to beer, to marijuana, to gambling.....he must drink 3 - 4 beers a night, for the last 15 years he had smoked so much grass daily that his state of mind was always a marijuana head....emotionally he is addicted. He needs it in his life to handle his life. He drinks the beers with the marijuana. He gambles on line in Texas Holdem whenever he is not busy at work and on the weekends he makes bets on football games. He rairly goes where there is a casino but when he does, he ends up betting $50 hands.

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

My addiction story

Hey guys.. I thought ild share my story

Gaming addition, well what can i say. Its hard to admit it, I mean ive shruged and laughed at it for my whole gaming career.

I play counter-strike, an online game. I only play clan matches, which is 5v5 matches. It takes a great deal of skill and teamwork like any other sport. Sure its great fun playing on lan and the likes. But dam its addictive.

Ive been playing cs for about 3 years. Over the last year ive really got into it.

Electronic Arts developers work night and day to crank out hits like "Madden NFL 2005." But now the elves are revolting.

Dec. 2, 2004 | The hottest new game from Electronic Arts these days isn't "Madden NFL 2005," a new installment of "The Sims," or the latest title in the James Bond series "GoldenEye: Rogue Agent."

No, the company's unexpected smash hit is a Web-based soap opera of sorts. Call it "Electronic Arts: Rogue Employer."

My Friend and my Dad

Hi, I am new to this forum, I have already posted my own story in the other section. This is the somewhat amusing story of my friend and my dad.

Time Spent Gaming in my life

Hi, this is my first post on ezboards. I`m not going to reveal any personal details, suffice to say that I am a 21 yr old Canadian male.

BTW I`ve never had a girlfriend, I personally am not a huge fan of dating. If the right girl comes along in the future, great, if not, well I guess that`s ok too. I`m also a Christian so yeah.

I remember playing Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, etc on Nintendo as a very young kid but it wasn`t a big part of my life so I didn`t go on playing. Currently my old NES is gathering dust. (obviously, its so old!)
