My husband has recently become addicted to the game war and order. I am so confused and lost right now. My husband has never before shown much interest in video games at all. About six months ago he had some difficulty at work and alot of down time and he started playing war and order. Six months later and it is all he does. He just got out of the military and all he does is game. He stays up all half the night and wakes up early in the morning to check his game. He sits on it all day. If i say anything about it he gets mad and verbally abusive. He has never been very physical against me but now he is shoving and threatning me all the time and tonight he jumped on me and pulled my hair. He gets especially bad if he gets attacked in the game and has big losses. Sure enough after he fell asleep I checked one of his five accounts and he had been attacked multiple times and lost alot about an hour before he lost it on me. I try to stay away from him when he's being attacked on the game, if I know about it, because if he loses he always takes it out on me in some way. I try to not nag him about the game and detach myself but this all happened so fast and out of nowhere that my thoughts are reeling. I am so lost and confused and now he is starting to take it out on our daughter sometimes. Not like he does with me, but little things here and there and he has no interest in spending much time with her. It has only been six months and I keep thinking it hasn't been too long maybe I can make him see what he is doing but he doesn't care. He even admits to being addicted but doesn't want to stop playing. I do not know what to do, all I know is that I am so scared. My life went from one thing to another before I even knew it was happening.
