Sometimes just uninstalling the game and throwing the disks away is easier to say than do. I too am a WoW player since the game first came out and
have watched the game evolve, met life long friends and have spent probably hundreds of hours exploring every nook and cranny of the game. I've
always been a gamer from the time I first discovered Atari (yea I'm old).
The first couple of years I was die hard end game raider. My friends: hey want to go do (insert random fun activity here) Me: Sorry Rangaros is not
going to kill himself! Needless to say, my real life relationships suffered greatly. It took almost losing the best friend I ever had to make me see
how one game can totally ruin friendships. After that, I had a more casual look at the game. Now I still play almost everyday, but usually at night
before I go to sleep. I have learned that there are TONS of things to do in this game at a casual level. I only raid now if one of my other guildies
doesn't show up for raid and I just happen to be on to fill the slot.
My point in all of this, is that you don't have to be a hard core poop-socker in order to enjoy this game.
Some people do not have the ability psychologically to be casual about it, in which case it's not the games fault, it's the personality of the
gamer. If you have an addictive personality, this game is not for you lol.
If you really want to quit, just do it. Give your gold and items to your friends, cancel your account, uninstall, the game and BAM you're free. It
will be helpful if you have a hobby, or something else to replace the time you spend online or else you'll be sitting online staring at cat pictures
and videos saying "Why did I do that?"
Good luck my friend.
