sunbear :  I think he should go to a video game addiction rehab program specifically. He has definitely hit a new low but who knows if this is even rock bottom yet.

He needs to admit that this is a problem. I don’t know much about addiction, but I feel like he is actually an addict for reasons like not realizing he is one and doesn’t need help. Denial is a very powerful thing. In a way you are an enabler for the fact that you are letting him get away with this. I don’t think you are taking the right steps in preventing this. Yes, you took the gaming away from the house but not hes moved into his friends houses and even worse, his phone.

I think you need to stop enabling him. Cut the phone, and cut the gaming completely. I know you financially said you guys can’t afford not seeking help but this is serious. I don’t think your marriage can afford not seeking help. I think you guys should attend a counseling group therapy for addicts, even like AA? I know its not alchol or drugs, but its an addiction just like it. I guess my point is something must be out there that is free, do some online research and find supporting group in your area.

If you want to stay with an addict, I suggest filing for legal separation so that the debt stops piling up in your name.
