I could scream

hi all

could anyone on here offer some advice? My partner has an addiction to the destiny game, it has become so bad now that I lack sleep.

He plays this pathetic game until 3-4am talking so loudly to others on his headpiece that I get no sleep, I have even resorted to sleep aids to help me.

I have tried on numerous occasions to talk to him to no avail, even screaming at him to turn it off at 3am but get either completely ignored or shouted at. I have children who wake up early and im finding myself getting rather impatient due to sleep deprivation. 

Please please could someone help, I dont think I can take much more

Hi Shannon

I totally understand what you're going through. I too, have trouble sleeping because of my boyfriend gaming. We have a small place and I wake up to everything. Just tonight, I had to tell him (yell at him the last time) to quiet down.. He listens, but gets annoyed. That was at 11:30 tonight... It's now 4:30 and he's still playing and talking on his head set. It's not helpful that he's stubborn and stays on longer when I'm mad to avoid my madness and attitude... I don't have much advice, sorry. But wanted you to know I'm dealing with the same thing, minus kids. :(

Welcome Shannon

Welcome Shannon

Our advice to spouses is here

We cannot control the gamer, but you are entitled to have sensible boundaries about his playing in your home. For example; no gaming in the bedroom at all or after a certain time. Some spouses decide to move out of the bedroom altogether.

Am going thru the same thing as you are right now..same game. This happened this weekend to me as well. He is my fiance and he stayed at my house this weekend as it was New Years. New Years day he slept most of the day and then we went to his family's house for dinner. He couldn't wait to get back and get on his game. We got back at 10pm and he knew I had been up since 730am. Didn't seem to bother him in the least. 1am I said I'm tired and going to sleep.. still he played on and very loudly and his 14 yr old son was there too and playing in another room and he was also very loud. I kept trying to drop subtle hints like hey you are keeping me up quite a bit and earlier that day we had a major fight about his gaming. I tried to tell him he is addicted and I am worried about him and it blew up in my face and he yelled at me saying it's who he is blah blah blah.
What I ended up doing was going into another room to sleep. I wish I could give you a magic answer, but I have never been in a situation like this where the person I am with prefers a video game to my company. Hang in there and I am available if you ever want to talk
