Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you could help my friend out... (I swear, this is not one of those "my friend is really me pretending to talk about my friend" threads, or else I'd probably be too busy playing the game to want to reach out for help). Anyways, my friend is, well, addicted to a certain online computer game. And by addicted, I mean he plays it more than the 40 hours he spends at work every week. I knew some guys a few years ago when I worked at an ISP that were hooked on Everquest: talking about it all day at work, and supposedly playing it all night at home. But my question to you all is: have any of you ever been addicted to something like that? My biggest qualm is that he doesn't really have a life, he just works, drinks, and plays his freakin' game. I really wish he'd go outside when it's nice, or hang out with his friends when they ask (outside of the "lets go to the bar" context). His sister (a good friend of mine) sides with me on this, but every time we try to talk to him about it he just shrugs it off (of course, every time we try to talk to him about it he's on the game). Wow, that seems a bit long for 8am... I'd love to monitor the responses to this all day (if anyone cares/feels like posting), but alas I must go to work. I'll be back tonight to post some more info for those of you that want to know. Thanks.
