Perhaps the parent post was a jest, but I can relate to the statement. My wife really did leave me, but for other reasons with WoW being just one of the factors. Maybe had I walked away from the game sooner, she would not have left; I'll never know. And before I write a country song, I'll cut to the chase... Yes, most people CAN play wow comfortably and maintain a Real Life... but others, like me, have addictive natures and need to know when to walk away, or get help, before it is too late. Had I been the sort to experiment with alcohol or drugs, I probably would have got hooked to those. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I chose WoW and for me, it became exactly like a drug.And now to answer the topic - I quit cold turkey a couple months ago and realized that I had nothing to show for the last three years of wow and progression raiding except a marriage that almost failed (she did come back...) 10 extra pounds, and an overwhelming sense that I lost a chunk of my life that I'll never get back.I still 'like' wow and I still keep up with my guild through our website, but for me it's best viewed from a distance.
