DDC crashing, which I only do if I can speak from experience. Online gaming is a addiction, like alcoholism, and often not one that can just "be stopped" for the right reasons...or I'm certain beyond doubt he would. He is everything he was that you fell in love with, but he's gotten hooked on something over his head. That something has to be treated like a disease, that needs treatment. Unhooking him would be like taking the bottle away from an alcoholic. He will seek his fix elsewhere. It has to be treated like a form of cancer. If one had lung cancer you wouldn't just stop smoking...there's more that has to be done. And confrontation is almost always met with accusations of how you the "confront-er" fall short. (because if the addict points the finger at everyone else, he/she doesn't have to look at themselves-it's a lovely tactic that is used without even having to think about it or realize you're doing it-you the addict are protecting your addiction so you can keep doing it.)
I wanted to post a link that was extremely helpful for me...and opened the door to a lot of options and help. At first it seemed daunting but then I realized that the current method of dealing with it wasn't working and daunting or not something else had to be done.
I would love to tell you more details of my story, but it's very personal and would prefer to share via PM/email if you think it would be of help, or if you have any questions. This is not a fun journey, but it is life changing and amazing in the end...I hope you are both able to find peace.http://www.olganon.org/
