I'm proud to say that I haven't played league of legends for two weeks. This game was a serious addiction of mine (playing up to 13 games a day, even on days when I had class). I've had to completely change how what gets me up in the morning, rely on support from friends, and avoid the strong temptation to reinstall. I've had a problem for a year now, but I think I'm finally done this time. I graduate from college soon. I have the summer off. I truely want to never play LoL again.

Share your stories of how you overcame addictions/made hard decisions. Anybody else had a problem with LoL taking up all your time?

lol league of losers

Well done.

I used to play a lot of counter strike as a teenager, but it wasn't really an addiction or anything. I stopped playing it (and games in general) because it stopped being entertaining for me.

It's a strange world when you can be a junkie and look at a guy like TS and think "At least I'm not THAT big of a loser"

I play LoL but I play like 4 - 5 games a day, and I only play on weekends mostly. Although I can see how that game can take a lot of time, just one game can last like 30 minutes and still feel like only 5 minutes have passed.

i know it man, that's the attitude that helps me get away from that shit... it's just so much god damn fun to win...

you might not think so, but once you start playing ranked competitively and realize that you really CAN use strategy and actually win games, it's hard to stop playing..

Too much time has been spent playing D2, Fallout 1 & 2, WoW, Rift, LoL, Dayz and many many others over the years. But I enjoyed it so who gives a toss.

them online games are designed to be addictive, to pull you in and jeep you hooked
I don't approve
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Aww man, Warcraft III bnet custom games, Diablo II, Starcraft. My teenage years summed up pretty much.

I hated Dota though, wintermaul wars was the shit though, but I could never get into Dota, funny since I actually like LoL, which is pretty much the same thing, just different graphics.

That's kind've my attitude towards it as well, as long as it's not interfering with a job, or personal relationships.

I remember the good old days when you could go on the custom games list and find interesting things to play and not a massive list of "DOTA -AR -AB -GA -Y PRO ONLY NO NOOBS!!!1"
Tower wars were good. Tech wars was great (I totally made a shitty AI version for that that became pretty popular ). Some AOS maps were pretty good.

I wish WC3 worked on mountain lion
