you have taken the first step in facing your problem kate, that is admitting there is a problem ,may i be the first to wish you good luck in beating your addiction,now the second step...uninstall the game and use the disc tied to a tree or something to scare the birds away in your garden!

See you when you're better, Kate.

You are doomed.

I have been playing Ultima Online obsessively for the last 5 years, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I may see you in WoW soon, as I intend to try it out.

Have nearly lost my girlfiend and nearly failed my degree due to nights of gaming.

XBOX Live and my PC has alot to answer for!! I just wish it had been around when I was 15 and not 24 !!!

You are not alone, totally addicted to Unreal Tournament here, surprised the PC hasn't melted. :0)

I'm on the Xbox live 2 month trial - very good service and functionality but:

Street Fighter Anniversary - get thrashed most of the time. Can't believe how good some of the people are.

Top Spin Tennis - played only 1 match and did not win a single point.

Pro Evo 4 - haven't got a chance.

I think we can all relate to your gaming experience,we all have to learn. :0)

Kodan, if you do go into WoW, I'm a gnome mage called Pollydolly ... let's get together and bash a few trolls!

and VNAM75, I was rather miffed the other day: some hulking great dwarf dozens of levels ahead of me challenged me to a duel and when I refused he started making chicken noises and flapping his "wings" at me. The cheek!

'hulking great dwarf'...'making chicken noises'...
'flapping his "wings"'...

I gotta try this! :D
