If you ask me, it's a hobby like restoring automobiles, gardening, scrapbooking, etc. This investment of time and money has its rewards, of course. The hobbyist drives their auto, eats fresh produce, or shares a family album. They also feel the benefits of satisfaction, pleasure, and social interaction. These hobbieswhich include these forumsare meant to enrich us. But they can be unhealthy, too. I have dear friends who, like an alcoholic in a bar, are washing away their own inadequacies with a lie. That lie is called World of Warcraft. As a level 23, I've always wanted to step up my efforts and become an elite. A digital, goaloriented hero. But I hesitate. What are your thoughts?
