Age of addicted partners? Curious!

Hi.

I have a partner who is addicted to Destiny on PS4, he is 47.

To me I do not get this, I think maybe I would 'get it' more if he were younger.

Do just curious as to how old your addicted partners are?

Average age of gamers are 35

Average age of gamers are 35 - 45. For if I was still an addict, I would be 44. I was addicted from 24-34.

If interested, msg me your email and I will send you my book "Hooked on Games" in PDF. I wrote it so family members can understand why gamers play addictively.

I encourage you to come to the spouses meetings where you will find support and help:

My husband is 43. Not sure

My husband is 43. Not sure how long he's had this behavior, I know it was way before I met him that it started from what he's told me about the games he plays. He didn't do it a lot when we were first together, but it picked up not long after we got married. PS3 games first, not games on his phone that are costing hundreds.

My husband is 26

he's been gaming since age 11 - he completely uses it to avoid dealing with emotions (his dad died in a hit & run when he was 6).

My fiance is 38 years old and has played video games since I can remember. But big difference is he always used to put the family and friends first ..that is until Destiny came along.
