Here is an email I received recently - I posted the email and name at the poster's request:
"Thank you very much for creating the Everquest Daily Grind blog. Like
alot of the stories that you posted, I too was an Everquest addict. I
wasted almost two of my college years becoming a zombie in front of
the monitor and came to myself before failing out all together. Since
then I have held a steady job, built up a savings account, avoided
video games entirely for a year, and about to get married to a
wonderful woman. The problem I am finding is the roots of my
addiction is still intact and sometimes feel it tugging at me. After
reading some of the harrowing accounts of married couples on your
blog, I feel that I can better resist and ignore the tug.
Once again, thank you and best regards."
