    Does anyone else have a SO addicted to WOW?

    I think I might kill my new DH if he doesn't get off the F***ING computer soon!

    He hasn't been motivated to do a damn thing since we've been back from Jamaica! His whole family is from out of town, and the first ones will be arriving on Wed.

    AHHHHHHHH! I am so pissed I am seriously considering taking a baseball bat to the whole system! He gets in this stupid trance and just kinda grunts at whatever I say. I told him I was going to get an annulment if he didn't get off his ass and the response was "Ok I love you"

      I'm so glad Brian isn't into WoW. But sadly he does have a nasty Playstation addiction that makes me want to take the thing and run it over repeatedly with my car while Brian watches and cries.

        My DH is a computer freak... he doesn't play WOW that much but other things... although since we've had a child he doesn't play. He works, comes home plays w/ our daughter and then smokes a cigar.

        But before.... I was w/ you... he usually didn't even hear me while playing.

          I completely understand the WOW addiction!!! The only thing I have going for me is that all I have is a laptop...so it's the worst when he's home helping his parents on the farm because they do have a good computer (he set it up of course). Trying to talk to him over the phone when he's there..."yeah," "m'hm," "okay"...you get it. Drives me crazy!! I completely feel for you!

              I hate that game. DH used to play it all the time, and now he's doing better about it. I just can't believe people get so addicted on this, I think it's awful!

                Mike stopped playing WOW. The game is too much of a time suck. He switched to another game that allows you to pause. a big problem with warcraft is how you have to get a team together so once that is organized you don't want to stop. so once he was playing he was really stuck. now he plays this game with his dad so it's cool that they are "hanging out." We live in a different state so they can't go do something real together & they aren't much for talking on the phone. So they talk over their headsets as the kill people.

                  you know there are laws in China about how long you can play the game and then must take a break. Children there have died because they were so into the game they didn't sleep, eat, or drink anything and became very sick.

                    This is my Mike's excuse. He plays with his brother, who lives in a different state so I feel bad about bitching, since he doesn't get to spend a lot of time with him. I totally think he is playing on my guilt factor.

                    It wouldn't be as bad if he would do other stuff. I know he needs to relax when he gets home from work and crap, but still it makes me crazy! I just don't understand. He will not go out with friends so he can stay home and play online!

                    Then, if I'm on BDW he gets all huffy. "You're on your computer, so why can't I be on mine?" We share the office, so I just get tired of listening to them talk on the headset.

                      Thankfully I don't have this problem AT ALL! Tim plays the WII and that's really it and some online Black Jack but not that often.

                      But I do know someone who has a really BAD addiction to the point where he lost his job because of it (staying up late and coming in late) and while he was unemployed he became even more addicted and lost most of his friends because he LIVED on the computer!!!! Actually "Intervention" on A&E did an show on a "Gaming Addict" believe it or not there really is a rehab that specializes in "Gaming Addictions". It's so sad!!! It sucks the life from these people... I've heard of divorces due to this game!!!!!
