Find different things to occupy your time. Exercising, working, take a class. Anything that you could do that's more constructive with your time than playing video games.

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

delete your LoL account if that is possible, if not just change your password to something random.

I used to be addicted to Maple Story... I spent over $500 on that game, and I played for 5 years. I quit in 2011. Spent over 100 hours a week on that shit (if possible). If I remember right I had about 12 level 200, of each job...

That shit kinda severed my growing social life. I played in middle school, and I can tell you the loser gamer head stereotype is true. When I quit playing shit got better though lol. 

I just decided to delete from my PC. But ever so often I would DL it again, and delete. But I just lost the feeling, I tried playing last December, and it was boring. So I deleted my account lol. (I regret it)

I guess I grew up. So many memories...

The only game I got really addicted to was CS. Everything else is to pass time. You should control yourself and do something productive.

As long as its not making you a hermit and interfering with your priorities then it shouldn't be a problem, if it is then I'd see how long you could go with out it

what world did you play in? 
#scania

man so much nostalgia... I lowkey wish I could go back in time. I truly was happy back then. The HAPPIEST I have ever been tbh, but that shit WAS NOT healthy for me.

OP, maybe quitting isn't your only option. Find other shit to do man. Control yourself. Put a timer on your computer with a random password. Anything.

Maplestory was so dope. we should start a HB fam guild again. They fucked all the classes up now though, the explorers were the most fun.

Played WoW for 5 years, gained 80 lbs, would refuse to hang out with friends thoroughly so I could play world of warcraft. Shit, I even refused to eat family dinners with the parentals because I would rather raid upstairs in my room. I'd raid 6 hours a night, 5 days a week and do homework inbetween wipes and breaks. Shit was bad.


Anyways, I cured it because I just grew out of it, I got bored of the game and moved on, I played other MMOs and I was heavily addicted but the best way to get out of the addiction realm is to just quit and find a new hobby.
I played WoW for 6 years, was a R1 Gladiator for multiple seasons and played everyday for like 3 hours and still had a social life lol

Got hooked to dota years ago and to Lord of the Rings Online (more recently)... It's hard to go cold turkey because there's no gratification/rewarding feelings/sense of accomplishment for me knowing that I was able to close the door on something (plus I knew in the back of my mind that I'd likely relapse and start playing again).

What worked for me is to limit my playing time as time passed by. If I habitually played 4 hours straight everyday, I would start limiting it to 2-3 hours daily the week after, then 1-2 hours daily, then 1-2 hours every other day... You get the idea.

Hope you find your way b - it doesn't have to get to the point of perma d/c

I'm down with the maple story hb guild. Never fucked w. Maplestory but with the fam I think that shit would be poppin. Someone make a thread bout it and let's get it goin. Also to OP just find somethin else to do. Start playing basketball or goin to the gym to release endorphins. That should somehow replace the high u get of playing ur game

This seems simple to me just play less and find other things to do, or if its on some real shit then quit all together. Hobbies shouldn't become the focus of your life.
