I,m so glad i have found this site. Sanity at last!
I was so relieved to find its, not me being unreasonable, my Husband has an addiction to C.O.D . Our marriage is on a fast track road to destruction and its like he,s oblivious to it. I,ve read many posts and its like de ja vous. He has been playing for about 4 years and i am at the end of my rope. Every day is the same, home from work, eats a meal, then xbox goes on, most of the time for 6-7 hrs a night. Its like hes in another world, no communication, no intimacy, no social life, no support with our children. When i try to talk to him about it, he gets angry and becomes verbaly abusive. If i want to watch TV i have to go to our bedroom as he takes control of the family TV. Ive gone through blaming myself, is it me , doesn,t he want to be with me anymore, am i boring? does he no longer find me attractive? Does he no longer love me. We have been together for 26 years and he is 49 yrs old. I started to realise no its not me, Its an addiction when we recentley moved house, and for three weeks had no internet. He was like a different person, attentive, considerate, helpful etc! Then the internet is set up and back to square one. Now i am at the stage after a weekend of sheer hell, seperate sleeping arrangements very hurtful words of giving up!
I feel like i,m just a glorified house keeper . Can somebody please explain to me what the attraction is of sitting in front of a tv and shooting zombies? night after night. A statement he made to me was " Its better than sex" ! He doesn,t even socialise on there just sits staring at a tv screen shooting zombies! I don,t know about it being called Call of Duty, it should be named Cause of Divorce, I just don,t know now how i can possibly get through to him to save our marriage, as he wont admit he has a problem. HELP!
