I am around but as I predicted, I am now a WoW addict.
I've always prided myself on strong willpower. Food? Alcohol? Sleep? I can deprive myself if necessary.
But the urge to spend every waking hour on a game - I cannot resist... The fantasy worlds of swords and sorcery, might and magic, dungeons and dragons etc has always appealed to me and in this immense game, my character lives in this world and I live in it through my character. Good grief...I've come over all funny!
The novelty may wear off at some point and I should be able to control the addiction, catch up on my blogging/reading blogs etc, but right now, the game is imprinted on the insides of my eyelids when I'm not playing and I'm thinking about rushing home from work and playing straight away.
Don't worry, I haven't fallen so badly yet - I'm still going to my aerobics during the week, went to the gym over the weekend, a good session on the punchbag, still doing a bit of reading.
Have even got a few minutes each day to do a bit of Brain Training on my Nintendo DS (late Xmas present from my sisters).
But to fit all this in, I'm surviving on less than 5 hours sleep a night so I admit I am officially a World of Warcrack addict.
Am keeping it secret from my colleagues so it must be bad. I shall fess up at some point...
