Hi everyone, this is my first post. I'm struggling to deal with my partner's addiction to a game called King of Avalon. It's been nearly two years. He's on it first thing in the morning, he spends ages in the toilet playing the game, and he takes extended smoking breaks to play the game. Any spare moment in the day, he's on his phone. He has talked about the adreneline rush he gets from the game. Even though it is a game with microtransactions, he assures me he doesn't spend very much money on it. However the trade off is that he spends more time on it. Whenever I suggest that his gaming is excessive he says that how he spends his time is none of my business. He doesn't clean the house, he relys on me to ask him to do things. The only things he does of his own volition is the washing up and taking the bin and recycling out. It's as if if he does these things, he is buying brownie points with me, so that he can spend more time playing his game. I don't think he understands that I need someone who wants to spend quality time with me, and actually come up with ideas for things to do. I feel like it's my job to be the one who has to be entertaining enough to draw him away from the game, which is exhausting. Frankly, it's made him boring- he has no other interests, unenthusiastic about life, and lacking in curiosity. It's totally affected my sex drive. I feel like in order to make him happy I should be a bit like a stepford wife, just willing to make him food and have sex with him no matter how I am treated. He is not a bad person, he is kind and he will help around the house. But this isn't a relationship. He's basically a stranger to me - I have nothing to talk to him about. I don't know what to do. I understand I need to create my own happiness and independence, but this is difficult during lockdown in a one bedroom flat. I just want my old boyfriend back.
