If you feel that you're "addicted" to WoW, then why don't you quantify EVERY leisure time activity as a potential "addiction"?For instance: in the evenings on workdays, I like to play WoW. When it's dark outside, most people watch television. I watch my monitor. I can't say that I'm missing anything on TV, because I just Tivo it and watch it while I'm eating dinner. I STILL have 2-3 hours of leisure time in the evening. Buying enough books to fill it every day would be hideously expensive (I read fast), so it's either #1) stare at random TV programs I don't particularly want to watch, or #2) Play a computer game.My computer game of choice for most evenings is WoW. Not always; I've gotten tired of WoW several times, taking 2-3 month breaks. But I always come back. Online MMO's are a fun way to spend an evening, and WoW is simply the best out there right now.If this is "addiction" for anyone, then I figure they're the same people who need draconian measures to break them of their television addiction, their fast food addiction, their sugary soft-drink addiction, their telephone addiction...The world is full of "addictions", but only for the people who see EVERYTHING they do as an "addiction".
