WHY can’t I comprehend that video game addiction is a true addiction? For 2 years I’ve battled this addiction with my boyfriend. But according to him “at least I’m not out at a bar”. I would keep my mouth shut. Find other activities to do to ignore the addiction. Most recently, I tried to break up with him. He told me he’d get rid of the video games. We made it TWO DAYS. TWO FREAKING DAYS before he freaked out on me in an anger rage about how I never give up anything and why I didn’t plan anything for us to do, what I expected us to do at home in place of him playing video games. His rage was CRAZY. Screaming, yelling, calling me names, pounding the furniture with his fist, throwing my clothes at me, getting in my face and putting his finger in my face as well. I left and went back to my place. I came back a day later and the Xbox was already put back and hooked up. Most recently I went to the grocery store and cooked him dinner. Even served it to him, while he was playing video games. It sat there, getting cold. I even said “you’re dinner is getting cold”. His response was “after this game”. And I sat there and ate my dinner by myself.
Im just so stupid for being in denial that he has a problem and won’t change
