I have forsaken video games.
It’s true. Sukie and I just had a fight and it occurred to me that she percieves me as a stupid, white, fat, lazy dumb video game junkie who doesn’t do anything around the house. She’s right. When in the grips of an addiction, there is a time when the addiction feels right – like feeding it is your purpose in life, and perhaps you do derive a fair ammount of pleasure from it.
But when your wife is crying and not happy because you’re not keeping up on your end of the household tasks, the addiction is hurting you.
There will be a day when I play video games again, but I don’t think it will be for a while. Sukie’s not happy, I’m not happy, and life’s just too short.
I love you, Sukie 🙂
