Addiction tears relationships apart. We all know about alcoholics, drug addicts, gamblers, sex addicts, and even workaholics but video game addiction amongst adults is less well known. One would think that the other addictions would be more commonplace in Las Vegas, Nevada, but video game addiction is still pretty huge. Generation X and Y grew up during a high point in the information age when television became outdated and computer and video games entered the world. Video games are designed to be addicting and weak people will not resist the temptation to play games at the expense of family, friends, and employment. They will spend all night chasing the endorphin rush and all day sleeping. They merge themselves into a fantasy world, a fool's paradise, while their real life languishes.
If your significant other is ruining his life to this kind of addiction, you have choices. You can pull the plug on this habit (so to speak) and seek out a counselor who handles this kind of problem. If all else fails and you have to protect yourself and your children from someone too absorbed in twiddling his thumbs before a moving picture to care about his "loved ones," then legal assistance may be required. Get help before too much psychological, physical, and financial damage is done.
