I think that I have finally hit addiction status on World of Warcraft. I love the game to death, but that might be exactly where the problem lies. I find myself scheduling the important things in life around Warcraft. A coworker offered me two extra hours at work the other night (about $15 worth), but I declined so that I could get home and play for two more hours. My job search has slowed to a crawl because of the game. I even eat protein bars more often than real food because it's quicker. All for the sake of fantasy world. Kind of pathetic when you think about it.
I guess you could call it an escape. People do it with movies and television all the time. I used to watch a movie every day. I suppose justifying it like that doesn't really work, since a movie is usually two hours or less, and I've been playing about 6 hours per day. It's just more exciting than my current life. It's too cold for biking, I don't know anyone in this city yet, and I'm too broke to go out.
I just wonder, where is the line drawn with MMORPG's? When does it all become too much?

When the WoW community wants to be recognized as an official country by the UN, then it'll be too much.

I don't think it will ever be too much... but hey, that's just me.
