Embarassed

I had company over for a dinner party. I had rushed all day to get my house ready and decorated. Husband walks in the door, straight to the computer and didn't move until 10:30pm. Needless to say, I didn't talk to him during the party. After I said things like, "I wish you could have participated in a game UNO with our family, it was fun." He didn't respond. Then when I was watching LOST, which I DVR'd, he would ask me questions about the show and I wouldn't answer. I swear.... he's never gonna quit. Maybe I should print up the forms for divorce now?

Re: Embarassed

Maybe you should, and leave them out where he can see them.

Maybe on his keyboard?

Re: Embarassed

Did that, but before he could get home, I called him, chewed him out for his behavior when we had company, started packing and he couldn't believe it. He left work early Thursday, thus no posts from me here for a few days, and said he would go. Thank GOD! Packing for kids sucks. Anyway - he said he wouldn't cry, or beg me to stay with him, he wants another chance. What the heck does another chance mean? I've done that already several times with many other games and it hasn't worked. He still doesn't have an answer from me and he's walking on eggshells. Kinda don't know what to do right now.

Re: Embarassed

Hi,

Did you ask him to come to this board and start participating here?

Re: Embarassed

To him it's a joke... he doesn't realize how real his problem is. He begged to play today.... BEGGED! I couldn't believe it. I figured if I had to sew to make money (I custom make Halloween Costumes) he could do something constructive... well he played anyway -: -->

LIZ - I almost called you last Thursday when my world felt like it was crashing in... What do I say? 'Hi, this is the "Snow White" from the boards, and I am losing control?"

Good one, Dan!

Sounds good to me!

Call when you need to. That is why we have a hotline. 612-245-1115.

Too bad about your husband. He has not seen the light yet.... Can we make him? There is a thing called an intervention. There is more information about someone who does that in our Professional References section - //http://p198.ezboard.com/folgafrm23.showMessage?topicID=72.topic

They work all over the U.S. You may want to give them a call for help.

Re: Embarassed

I have their page bookmarked. I'll see about calling it today, and then post what I find out about it. I think that this gaming addiction is embarassing for me and like nothing to my husband. It's not that I want him to stop because I am embarassed but because he embarasses the whole family when he can't pitch in around the house, or get out of the **** computer corner! ACK! People ask 'Where's your help?' I laugh, 'WHAT HELP!?' My husbad is busy raiding ya'll, sorry...
