I have stopped playing WoW for... I believe 2 and a half months now. I really enjoy the game, and I have enough money to afford it, but ever since I started getting into... MMO 'type' games my health has suffered quite dramatically. Ever since 2003, when I started playing Runescape (yeah laugh at me but I was 12 back then so it fits lol) my life was consumed by MMO type games. I can play normal games, like FPS or any console game for just a couple of hours and call it quits.
However, with WoW and Runescape anything less than 4 hours a day was an off day for me for 9 years. I gained around 180-200 pounds since 2003, and well lets just say I am a really heavy person. I know I did this to myself, I know its my responsibility to either take the consequences of my negligence of my health, or to fight back and lose the weight. Regardless, I am not playing WoW or any other MMO/RPG games until I lose weight and learn to control and respect my body and my health.
So my question to you WoW players is, what do you do to maintain good health? What rituals do you go through every day to keep your mental/physical health sane? What personal oaths do you vow to never break to ensure you can play your favorite games with as few drawbacks as possible?
If I could maybe learn from your experiences, then maybe I could apply them to my life. Thanks in advance!
