user, think of all the countless hours you have spent going through the same spell rotations, waiting for BG queues, raids, dungeons, mob respawns or even worse, just sitting in the capital city of your faction and being bored, doing nothing. All those precious moments that have brought you nothing, because you have only been pressing the same keys over and over, watching a few digital numbers shift back and forth.
It's a cleverly crafted trap, that you find yourself in. And it is because it uses this mechanism of your body, making yourself feeling good, as soon as you fill that experience bar, get that random drop, or finish another purely digital objective. It is the same mechanism that makes us eat chocolate over and over again. Only a simple chemical reaction of our organism enjoying a certain hormone being released to our brain. And you fell for it. The game conditioned you to repeat this reward-loop again and again, making you subconsciously think, that you really accomplished something.
Yet, if this civilization would collapse suddenly, what is it that you can take from WoW, that will make you survive in the real world? After all those in-game hours, did you acquire any hard skills, that will bring you forth?
You can free yourself now and firstly you will need three things to succeed in this:
1) A thorough understanding that WoW is poison for you.
2) The cold withdrawal from WoW.
3) An honest resolution to not return back to WoW.
As you will succeed with this foundation, you will find yourself with more spare time. That's awesome, fill this time with positive things. Pick up those old hobbies you've had before WoW, learn new hobbies/languages/skills, create something, work on your weight, etc. We live in such wonderful times, where everything you want to learn is explained to you on Youtube. You really have no excuse to go back to WoW.
