This is probably going to be a mess of an explaination, but- this is my story: My husband of 5 years has been flat out addicted to Game of War for 16 months. We have two very young children-they are currently 2&3. I am stay at home mom. It has been a year plus of me BEGGING, pleading, trying to understand, getting IRATE (even breaking my hand punching a wall :/) and finally after all this time dealing with this, I do believe I am slipping in to depression. I have caught him sending inappropriate photos and messages to a handful of women via the Line app. He always has an excuse- she asked for the photos, I'm just trying to get her on our side...always BULL. He nearly got fired from work for being late so many times because he stays up so late playing. He also drinks excessively while playing, which is another issue. He has always had an addictive personality, but this is extreme. He does NOTHING around the house, our girls scream and cry for his attention and aside from him supporting us (barely) I feel like a single mother. He admits he is addicted to the game, and has made a few comments about being embarrassed, but has clearly stated he has NO desire to stop playing. We have been thisclose to divorce over this game, but I refuse to let a game ruin my life. I am just at rock bottom here and not sure what to do- I can not live my life around him as if nothing is going on, and I am mentally and emotionally exhausted from all this frustration! Just looking for some encouragement or suggestions I suppose :/
