    Default World of Warcraft - addiction?

    Does anyone here play WoW? Do you find it addictive? I started playing a while back, got given a level 70 off someone I knew, only just started getting into it properly though, finding a few hours a night are starting to go missing! Not good.

    I kind of avoided it after I lost a chunk of my life to Dark Age of Camelot - it was like having two jobs, 40 hours at work, 40 hours at home in DAOC. I know what'll happen if I start playing WOW, so I don't.

    Took a break from WoW a while back but started up again recently. I have to be very carefull to ration the time I spend on it or nothing else gets done!

    Thanks, I'm starting to think the same thing myself.

    I used to think the same until I installed it.

    It's definitely real, I have heard of WoW interventions...

    I was addicted to WoW for 2 years, I got a job at a net cafe just so I could play it constantly all day long, I failed all my university courses and alienated those who love me. I would dream about dungeon raid tactics whilst asleep and I lived off microwave noodles.
    I didn't do any laundry, I hardly left the house apart from going to work, and I also started drinking heavily during long night raids.
    My girlfriend eventually told me it was her or WoW, and I spent a few days weighing the two up (I actually made a pro-con chart between the two) and in the end, she won over Warcraft.
    I can't believe i nearly choose a video game over my girlfriend….
    now I stand firmly against WoW and all online games, it's all solo RPG's for me now.
