Hey everyone. My relationship went to pieces last night and I’m broken hearted.
My problem? I love the man I fell in love with…he is brilliant, kind, funny, honorable, honest, big-hearted, tender, sweet, silly, sexy and great.
I hate the other man that inhabits the same body: he’s an addict. A serious, sick, deeply in denial addict. Addicted to computer games. Often 10, 12, 14 hours in a day. Everything else comes after, if it comes at all, including me, our business, our lives.
Well, I’ve been trying everything I know for 4 years, and if anything he’s worse. Always told me I was the most important thing in the world to him. Guess not.
Anyway, a friend of mine suggested that for my own sanity, to at least understand more completely what I’m dealing with and why my relationship is in meltdown, I should go to Al-Anon. I fear however, that they would not respect the fact that this addiction can be just as destructive as alcoholism.
Are there yet Compu-Anon? I thought about a gambler gambler’s version, but they have the issue of financial ruin, which computer addicts don’t usually face.
I’m in a lot of pain, sorrow and anger right now. I need something…
