    We'll see, i told him last night i was serious, i dont want his crap anymore & if he starts it again we are done.

    I'm sorry, but whoop-de-do. Has he apologised for ruining your birthday? Made up for it by buying you a gorgeous.thoughtful present or cooked you a special dinner? Apologised profusely to DS for scaring him and promised it will never happen again? Admitted he needs help to figure out why he feels compelled to hurt you with his words, and taken steps to find someone professional to help him stop? Agreed that his family comes first before the computer, and again, admitting he has a.problem with his gaming and needs to do something about it?
    It makes me so sad to see you put up with all he has done and accept scraps in return as 'better'. You deserve far, far better. And so does your son.

    Good luck. I hope for you sake he keeps it together but I've been there done that and I can tell you he will go back to the way he was before. I know it's hard but I really think you need to seriously look into your options about what you can do to live elsewhere. I'd do it now while things are okay. If they stay okay then don't go through with it but if they don't stay okay then you have things in place so you can just leave.

    Has he disconnected the computer? I wouldn't take his word on anything until he disconnects the computer. See if he can live without it for a week. That will show you if he's even remotely serious about changing.

    If he's prepared to do for his family there may be a chance he's serious.

    Good luck with everything! He needs to work a lot harder than he is everyday without there being a reason... If your family isn't reason enough and his 'love' for you and your son then he will slip into old habits. He shouldn't have to be told this. He should just do it.

    I hope everything works out for the best, whether that's the two of you together or apart, who knows...
    Big hugs

    I've read a few of your threads and tbh it seems there's deeper issues going on here than just playing the computer too much. He is abusive, he doesn't respect you. I hope he makes the changes you need him to, if he wants to change he will. But based on what you've said about him, I wouldn't be holding my breath

    How's it going? Is he still making an effort?

    Hope all is well.
