Video Games Are a Drug...

If you've ever been addicted to heroin or World of Warcraft, you're aware that breaking the addiction is a difficult task. It takes a Herculean effort, and even if you're able to break the cycle of abuse, you can always be drawn back into it the instant you're contacted by one of your old friends with a scroll of resurrection. It's not just the addiction factor - here are other ways video games and drugs correlate (besides potheads getting stoned and playing). (Culture, World of Warcraft)

I was addicted to wow back in the pre lich king days. Hard thing to do but I'm lucky to have had an Epiphany and realized how pathetic my life became. Haven't owned a PC since as I've banned myself from becoming a pathetic husk of a human.
Not all people are like me but I know if I had the chance of playing it booted up as soon as I got home i would be at it again.

To deny your own impulses, is to deny the very THING that makes us human.

-Put a label on it if it makes ya feel better. I am an addict and my "drug" is video games.

Not a drug, more like a gambling addiction.
