When You Are Addicted!!

Actually this post was written yesterday before the one which lost me my daily 10 laks Grrrr!! Anyway I haven't talked to CM Dhar yet but I guess if defending directly would make me lose laks then I guess I shouldn't be wasting my time actually, so caligstar it's simply like this, nobody cares what you think!!! So keep barking and nobody really cares lol as from now on I guess I won't be giving ear to the nonsense you are saying in order not to distract myself, have fun and thx for the "traditional" cussing in your blog, as I said earler creativity isn't your game. Bye Bye. Now To my post...

Well they ask us to write when is someone addicted to WYD, and since we are speaking about addiction who should be taking the stand? That's right folks, Dr. Wicked is here :P today we speak about addiction, as you guys know WYD addiction is one of the hardest addictions to treat, but Dr. Wicked will fix you all :P

Well kids as you all know addiction is actually a negative word, this word is mostly involved with drugs and alcohol mostly but in fact addiction is when you do something that you can't stop it when you want, you can be addicted to chocolate, ice cream, cookies, pulling your hair even!!! In our case today we will speak about WYD addiction which is ( according to Dr. Wicked ) one of the most dangerous diseases out there @@ ( even more dangerous than WOW addiction @@!! )

First of all we will speak about MMORPGs addiction in general, in fact guys and gals this isn't a joke..seriously. If you pass on your real life friends and rather stay home playing a game than going out with them then well..continue reading please ( in all ways continue reading lol ) because as I did some searching I found out lots of information at http://www.wikihow.com which are actually very valuable, first we begin by the signs by which you know you are addicted to an online game @@ those signs are:

    • Continuously thinking about an MMORPG

    • Missing work, school, or a social activity to devote time to an MMORPG

    • Playing an MMORPG for an excessive duration in one sitting (more than 5 hours)

    • Spending real money on in game items

    • Psychological distress attributed to lack of game-play (feeling upset/angry if you can't play)

    • Loss of sleep due to excessive gaming

    • Other major lifestyle change that results in playing the MMORPG more often
so basically if the above signs apply to you then you obviously have a problem @@ to try and overcome your problem you should follow those steps:

  1. Recognize your addiction. Even if it is a video game, it is still an addiction that is affecting your lifestyle. In recognizing the problem, you become aware that it needs to be fixed.

  2. Tell your MMORPG friends that you are quitting, whether for an certain time period, or permanently. They may give you the emotional support that you need to recover. If you can't bear parting from your e-friends, keep contact with them via e-mail or chat.

  3. Start your long journey to recovery. Depending on how addicted you are, and how much time you have to beat your addiction, you have several methods of approach.

      • Decrease your overall time playing. What seems to be the most common is to slowly lower your playing time until it is down to a reasonable amount. However, this may not work for people who are unable to control their addiction.

      • Force yourself to quit playing. Quit playing the game for a few months, and then your addiction will soon dissipate, provided that you don't slip back to the game.

      • Uninstall the MMORPG. If you cannot trust yourself to keep away from loading the game another time, then your best bet is to remove the program from your computer completely.

      • Keep the installation CD out of reach. You might lock them away in a drawer, or give them to your parents, sibling, or trusted friend. If you are very determined, you might even destroy, or sell the CD.

      • Find new hobbies. Look for another hobby like reading or riding a bicycle. It is best if you find something that will keep you away from the computer, in effort to keep your mind off of the MMORPG.

  4. Avoid triggering your addiction again. After your addiction is beaten, keep it at bay. If you're sure that the addiction won't come back, you could try the MMORPG again, although that may be a bit risky. Also, try to avoid starting another MMORPG. You'll only end up funneling your addiction from the first MMORPG to the next.
Well those usually work for usual addicts but for some harder cases you might need some more extreme approaches, like deleting your character!!! In fact this could be such a waste of effort so selling it can still do as well. So basically playing a game is no problem, just choosing it over your friends and making it your top priority and spending a fortune on it ( sorry joyimpact LOL ) is well, I would say is wrong because in the matter of fact what you do is nothing, you just sit and stare at a screen and just save computer code on some server, I mean non of this is for real so your family, friends, health and activities should come first, then when you have a spare time you can jump into WYD and start PKing ppl ;) Please note that if your case is too complicated then you should forget about Dr. Wicked and go see a real doctor @@

That part was for the "addicts" but what about us normal people? What should we do to avoid being addicted o.O'?? Well here it is from your very own http://www.wikihow.com ;)

  1. Notice what you do when you come home from work or school.

  2. Make a list of things to do. Write down everything that has to be done during your day and list them in order of importance.

  3. Look at the list every day, and follow it. Cross off each of as you take care of them. The list should look like this:

    • Make my bed

    • Straighten out my room

    • Take out the garbage

    • Do my homework

    • Play video games

  4. Remember to make the list to suit you and your life.

  5. Tell the people you're playing with that you're going to stop at a certain time. You might be tempted to ignore the fact that you've played for more time than you'd like, or you may not even realize how long you're playing, but others may help to remind you.

  6. Try finding something else you like to do. It could be from drawing to running with your dog. This helps keep your mind off it.

Then finally a piece of wisdom I found in the same place...not everyone who does cocaine overdoses, but does that mean they are not addicted?!!

So that was the case in general but what about us?? I mean WYDIANS of course, as we all know WYDIANS are always special so they have their own special signs of addiction :P

1. When you have dreams from this type ( check this one out LOL ) you login and you find that your +6 crap set is now a +15 perfect stats god class set and your crap elf bow is now a +15 72 dmg isis...you are sleeping and goes like MMMMemmmmAHHH and your mother is like what are you doing :S?!! Wake up or you will be late for school

2. When you have nightmares from this type, the next day you ate a lot in dinner and you wan complete the previous dream, you find out that your imaginary +15 set is gone but guess what, your +15 perfect isis is still there ;) your move it to equip is but woops it falls on the ground and suddenly you have an unfortunate lag, when everything is back you find out that your isis was picked up by a lvl 79 noob who is just soo happy and thinks that the wep looks cool, he tries to equip it then he finds out that he is unable to do it so he decides to sell the wep, he sells it for 450k gold to the most person you hate in game who uses the bow to kill you in desert and you high lvl low le uni dies and is gone for ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! You wake up screaming NOOOOOOOOOOO and again your mum goes like What are you doing :S :S?!?!!?! Wake up or you will be late for school!!

3. When you constantly hear the boring game music in your ears over and over no matter what you are doing, like you are sitting in a cafe with your friends and you start to hear armia music :S?!!

4. When you start to look at female characters in game and go like waa..farche is really cute @@!! when you reach that point I say GO SEEK HELP NOW!!!

So WYDIANS remember to play it safe @@, have fun out there ;)
