The social cost of being addicted to WoW isn't quite as bad as the other things you mentioned, but it is there. Fortunately WoW addiction's physical toll is mostly non-existant. So you put on a few pounds and your kids learn about self reliance a bit earlier than other kids.The thing most WoW players don't want to face is the fact that if they are addicted to WoW, any play at all is too much. The cost of addiction isn't just in the time they actually play it, it's the time they spend thinking about it, obsessing over it and preparing for it when they're not playing it.If you have an inkling that your WoW playing habits are unhealthy, stop trying to justify it and just stop playing. Permanently.
