He's the person I know somewhere in there.
My boyfriend of 12yrs has became a completely different person since he started playing WoW 3yrs ago. I regret the day I called Dell to order him a computer. He has lost communication with his friends and family. When people come to our home he practically hides. I would not be writing on here, if it wasn't for our 2 children. They are beautiful, they are not always the easiest to deal with but their kids. When I get home from work the kids are left to me and he strolls off to the computer. Our kids have no idea what it is like to have a father that plays with them or shows any type of affection. Our daughter thrives for his attention and he won't give her the time of day. He speaks to her and myself with the cockiest attitude. When he is asked to do something he throws a fit b/c it pulls him off his game. We used to do things together but now we have nothing in common. And like most of you know, if you say anything about addiction it's a huge fight. I've made myself numb, I don't know what it's like to have affection, love, or an adult conversation. It has literally been over 2yrs since we've sat and watched a movie or show together. I wish I could help him understand that he has already lost me and he's about to lose his children. I can leave and their are other people out there that could make me and our kids happy. All in all, I love him, I miss him and I want him back! I hope that he realizes it b4 his children are all grown b/c you will never get that time back. I hate this game with a passion. It makes me angry.
