My husband suffers from depression and anger issues which makes his addiction to League of Legends horrible! We have been together for 8years now, married for 3. We have two sons an almost 3year old and a 1year old which is where his addiction has become a major problem.
He will stay up all night playing this stupid game, literally all night, he would rather go days without sleep than stop playing. He will swear and scream and punch the computer desk if something isn't going his way. Most recently he did this at 3am waking up both kids and scaring the crap out of them but he didn't see the problem. I sat down and calmly tried to explain to him that this can't keep happening, that this is too dangerous for our sons to be around and I will (as much as I don't want to) have to take the boys and leave him to his games. I gave him a choice, stop playing or say goodbye.
Well he stopped playing for 24hrs and now plays when he thinks I'm not around or that I'm asleep... he doesn't realise that his yelling wakes me up every single night. Is the game really more important than his family? Why can't he see what he is losing? I'm at my wits end. He needs help and I need help coping with this.
