I quit January of this year. Am still thinking if I should return for Cataclysm or not, sometimes I feel the itch but then I remember that obligation to play a lot of hours to farm, grind, and not be left behind (I was playing around 10 hrs a day, seven days a week). I'm not sure I'm willing to spend so much time into a game again.

I wasn't playing as much as you, although it was close.I quit too around that time and I'll be coming back for Cata. However the biggest time sink for me was 3 hours of 25 man raiding and then another 2-3 hours of 10 man. You won't be able to do that in Cata -- one or the other.My current plan is like 3 nights a week and 10 man only. 10 hours a week is nothing. :)

Oh please. You don't have to play anywhere close to 70 hours a week. I dinged a hunter at 80 with 11 days /played and geared her to an ICC entry level (T9, 232 gear) in a week. I farmed a lot... for 2 days. If you played 70 hours a week it's because you wanted to, not because you had to.

@Clevins - I didn't mean I HAD to play 10 hours a day. I said I was playing 10 hours a day. Yes, because I wanted to, because I was THAT into the game. The fact I actually felt like staying so many hours connected, and feeling obligated to myself to farm more, grind this or that rep/item/etc, it's one of the reasons I quit.My comment about not sure I want to do that again it's in the sense of being afraid if I return to the game I'll end up playing that much again. My husband also quit since he left for Tech School (Air Force) and is also not sure he should go back to WoW as we were both rather addicted to it.

When in doubt, don't. It sounds like you're posting this publicly because you want other people to tell you not to return... so don't return!Spend that $15 on a couple books or DVDs. You may blow 10+ hours on a Lord of the Rings marathon but at some point it ends, whereas WoW can potentially never end.
