Few weeks ago I finally realised I was'nt really enjoying the game as a used to, but I kept on playing just to keep the ingame currency coming in. I have been playing eve online nearly every day for the past 15months for around 4-6 hours everyday even more on weekends. I only stopped playing when I left home for holidays or when I needed to work for long hours.
I have neglected too much of my life to keep on playing I even quit photography and reading books just to have more time to play!
2 days ago decided to search for sites related to online gaming addiction and stumbled in to this one. I have read a few articles and progress reports and I decided to quit.
So this is my second day without playing eve I still have thoughts about new ships I wanted to buy and online friends I would like to talk to. I can't believe how much free time I have now to help clean up the house, even cooked for my famliy just to keep me busy. Anyway it's not easy with so much free time I still get the urge to play.
At the moment I feel some relief, although some sadness still creeps in at times.
Hopefully I think I will make it and quit forever:)
