I believe my wife is addicted to WOW. I'm 99% sure but I'd like a second opinion.
My wife lets everything go to hell. Bills aren't paid until the last minute. Dishes aren't done unless she is asked over and over. No housework is done ever. I end up doing all hers plus mine.
She comes home and plops down in front of the computer first thing. She then plays until bedtime. Which used to be around 11-12 now is as late as 1:30 weekdays or 4 am weekends.
I've begged her to spend time with me, but her response is "Well we're in the same house so that's enough right?" or "Well what you do is boring/I have no interest in it."
The odd thing is she didn't used to find it boring. She'd watch Cheesy Sci-Fi with me and make fun of the movie/show. I'd watch ER/Grey's anatomy/one of the endless stream of court room legal dramas with her. She'd play games with me, go to movies, go out together, and even just talk.
Everyday of the week she comes home and plays. That's all she does for the day. No house work, no anything else. She doesn't even watch her favorite shows anymore.
Whenever I confront her she becomes ungodly defensive.
Tonight trying to get her to realize what she is doing isn't healthy I said, "If I spent as much time with that a bottle as you do that game, they'd call me an alcoholic." Her response was, "Why is your answer to everything drinking?"
I ask you where in that sentance did I say I want to drink or that I was concidering drinking?
Sometimes I feel like she purposely sabotages our time together. Like this past Sunday we were going to a movie. Saturday when she had time she came home plopped her butt in front of a computer and played from 6 pm until 4 am.
Saturday she could have done the laundry. Saturday there were no obstacles to her accomplishing that. Oh no she had to play that game.
Before you read the next part keep in mind this woman doesn't go to bed without setting the alarm clock. She gets up everyday between 5 and 6 am and does yoga immediately.
Sunday She didn't get up until 12 noon then decided that oh boy laundry needed done. Oh boy before that yoga needed done. This took until 3:30. Then a friend who was our guest that day needed transport back to his house an hour away. The movie was at 6. My friend asked if we had time, could we swing past Wal Mart to pick up some groceries since it was on the way.
Looking at what time it was and that the friendaEU(tm)s house is only 1/2 hour from the movie theatre, I said I don't care if my wife doesn't. She agreed it was fine and we stopped off.
My wife despite knowing the time crunch decided looking at crafts was the best use of her time. After delaying enough so that we couldn't go to the movie, we then went straight home. On the way she asked if I wanted Chinese food or pizza. By this time I was so disgusted I just said, "If you want to go, I don't care either way." She went home and played.
I used to feel that the people who threw out/smashed their TVs were psychopaths. After seeing what has happened I'm ready to do that to her computer.
I have a network at the house and a login server. Through this login server I can restrict hours allowed in. However she does bills (albeit at the last minute) and does banking online. So this might not be the way to go.
She goes on raids almost exclusively lately. I was thinking of presenting this to her guild mates and asking them not to take her on any raids. However I'm not sure if they would be understanding. Also if they would cooperate I'm not sure if sheaEU(tm)d see this as a betrayal.
Does she have an addiction? If so what do I do? Divorce? Take the computer away?
