Playing WOW until I pass out

I play WOW until I pass out in the chair

After I get of work I detour to the store pick up food, get home and get on the computer and WoW it up till I pass out in the chair, wake up in the middle of the night, make my way to bed, get up when the alarm goes off, go to work and repeat the cycle all over again.

Marriage is in the toilet due to WOW

She does not clean her house, take care of the kids or do anything, except play the game. She often stays up 36 hrs at a time, she doesn't do personal hygiene when she plays. She uses the 8 and 10 y/o as "go'fers" when they are there. They take care of their 3 y/o brother, food, diapers and all. I've known alcoholics and druggies. This is NO different. The problem is that there is no "residue". No drug paraphenalia or empty bottles to see after the fact. But it's just as real.
