I know it sounds crazy, but it's a fact - My life is being ruined by an Android phone which I had gifted to my wife on her birthday last year.
Last year in April, on my wife's birthday I had gifted her an Android Phone. Since then, she is COMPLETELY ADDICTED to it. She has made a lot of online friends and she is always chatting with them. Due to her addiction, my 3 years old kid, our house and our relationship, her health, everything as a family is badly suffering.
Due to this addiction, she has become extremely careless in whatever she does.
Her interactions with her son has reduced to merely cooking for him and feeding him. She does not spends any quality time with us as a family. Our communications has reduced merely to daily errands. The kid is getting completely ignored, and is not learning things to the extend to which he should have learnt. The only time which kid gets to play with someone is when i come home from office. Until then the kid is either put to watch tv or plays all alone, even though his mom is right within the house.
The house is ill maintained. I have to come back from office and get the house in order. All household work is on me because she "does not gets time" to take care of household. Even when we are with relatives & in other social occasions, instead of interacting with elders and other family members, she is on phone. Due to her behavior, it is creating problems in our family.
Until 2 - 3 am, she chats on the phone and gets up at 7 am tired. Since she uses phone even when she is preparing breakfast & getting other things ready for the day, she takes more time. Because of which we leave home very late and is having an impact on our respective offices also.
whatever she does - be it cooking, driving together, feeding the kid, office, shopping, having food together and even when she uses the toilet - she is on phone, always chatting with her friends.
I have tried to talk to her about this multiple times, but she blatantly refuses to admit that she has an addiction. She says I am being too finicky about this simple thing. She quarrels with me whenever I take this point out. She refuses to admit the problems being created by her behavior. She even blames me that she is on phone because I am not with her.
I do not know how to best put it in words, but probably i have managed to show the tip of the iceberg.
Please Help !!!!
Taking her phone away is not a solution as she can always buy a new phone. I want her to use it responsibly instead of getting addicted to it.
Last but not the least, I love her very much.
