I played pretty heavy until my first daughter was born then backed down a lot. After my wife just had enough I quit for a while. I came back about 6 months later because I was given the a-ok from the boss...played for a while quit again...we had our second daughter. Was out for 4 months or so came back briefly left again. 4.0 and all the class/race/zone changes brought me back for about 3 months then I started on a whole new server and level 10 toons all at once through nearly the same content. I recently returned after another 3 month hiatus. What ends up bringing me back is a lack of anything on television and my wife being on call every weekend at the hospital. When the kids are in bed and it's just me; it's pretty boring around the house...that said, I burned myself out last time so I'm hoping to do that again...the burn out actually helps me stay away...I love the game but since I started back up last Friday...it's like I can't stop thinking/playing it...despite all my best attempts at self-control it seriously just takes me over...so maybe a better question is how do you keep yourself away rather than what brings you back.

I can relate to your plight. I've decided to step away from the game for awhile after missing an assignment deadline, but all the while still levelling a char.It's pretty dam hard particularly when you do actually get some real "free" time. Thus far I've managed to distract myself with the Warcraft III level editor. Finishing off one of the multitudes of incomplete maps I started.Find yourself a distraction that you can easily put down.
