Ive been married 3 yrs with her for 8, and wife knew that it was an addiction to say the least. Anyhow after careful scrutiny and analysis i have found some very significant information that could help.
1.) always start off by saying "im sorry" when ya get home. We are never back on time from lease, ranch, range, etc.
2.) - follow it by saying EXACTLY this " you know babygirl im not perfect i have my faults and one is this addiction to _______ (guns,hunting,dip), but im addicted even more to you. So i hope you can forgive my shortcomings like i will always do for you, i love you"
3.) Lastly, This works 100% of 93.7% time
By the time i say all that everything is all back in my little world.
Disclaimer this is all bs, i only wish it worked lol. best of luck to ya, shes pretty cool with me and my antics 99% of the time.
