"My brother ... is married and has 2 children. He plays Mon-Fri from about 6-10 pm, and 6-8 hours on Sat and Sun. He even eats dinner at his computer. His addiction precludes him from spending time with his kids and his wife. He rarely goes out, only to take his wife out for her birthday and anniversy, thats it for the year. He lost contact with his friends and when he comes over my house on occasion the conversation usually centers around the game. I used to play as well, but I kicked my addiction after 2 years of playing."

It's funny, I started my blog about the same thing, even share one of the same links.

Today I decided to do a search for "Everquest 2 addiction" and came up with many, many sites, including yours.

In the slow attempt to grasp what has ahold of me and how, I've started my blog. Maybe that's an attempt like everyone else to begin realizing the what and how.

To say I'm not in denial is in fact, denial. But I consider myself a medium user. I will get up from the computer is anything in the house needs me attention (wife, kids, chores, projects, etc). I only play after I've spent quality time with wife/kids/house/chores/projects, and that's usually at night for 1-2 hours.

Good luck with your realization, I know what it is but not what it takes.
