6 Reasons It Is Impossible to Quit 'World of Warcraft'

About a year ago, I made the statement, "If you ever see me reopen my World of Warcraft account, it means I probably got fired from my job." Eight months later, I was giving Blizzard my credit card info for the sixth time since its 2004 release. Blizzard had ensnared me with another expansion (though I still have my job, so far).

I'm not the only one -- friends who play with me have come back just as often, and each time it just confuses the shit out of the people in our lives who don't play. So for everyone out there quietly judging us and wondering how we can continually come back to this time-sucking black hole that swallows lives by the millions, let me offer some answers:

I played WOW for 6 months and was never addicted to it. I played it on and off for them 6 months. Its not addictive what so ever

It's not addictive, it's just fun and worth playing. I loved the game and stuck with it all the way up until I left school, got a job and found that I didn't have time to keep up with the younger crowd.

I was able to quit easily and I get tempted to go back because it's fun and I like fun games.

Labelling everything that is worth playing as addictive is a silly fad that seems to stream from jealous simpletons whose preferred games of choice only last a few days or a few hours if they play on the weekend.
