I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Yes. It was boring. No.
I didn't play a lot of WoW to begin with, so I really don't miss that two hours a day (I fill it up with whatever other things come to my mind as it's easy to fill up). I quit because there wasn't just much to at competitive level as I didn't have the time for being competitive. Besides that, quite a chunk of my friends quit aswell.
I hope I won't get the urge to start playing WoW again, as it'll be good to have quit it for good.
Depends a lot on the person and the reasons you quit. For instance if you just log in every day do a few dailys / dungeons then log off, then one day you just think I cant be assed I quit, You will likely not have these 'withdraw symptoms'. However if you cannot afford to play, have other commitments or for whatever reason are FORCED to quit, you will likely want to play even more, it goes back to that whole childhood mindset where someone asks you NOT to do something and you want to do it all the more, as silly as it sound being applied to a game as a teen / adult, its still has the same effects.
I quit just over a month ago and for good. Before I permanently logged off, I sent all my gold, mats, and BoE's across all my characters to my one and only friend who still plays. Figured he'd find more use from my neglected wealth. Left him a note reminding him of our conversation a while back that when my annual pass ends, I wouldn't be re-subbing. Day comes and I quit WoW for good, even uninstalling the game from my computer so as to prevent me from playing even if I wanted to. Felt a sense of relief and freedom after getting rid of WoW. Haven't felt any withdrawal symptoms but it probably helps that I have a new goal to focus on instead that involves me being outside and physically active.
Quit when i clear content/get bored. (Usually only get bored after i cleared content ).
Do some HC's with my guild. When we hit a wall and some ppl start leaving cause they cba to wipe i quit. Come back for next raid patch. Rinse and repeat forevar!
I know a lot of people will probably give their reason as saying if I wasn't playing WoW i would be watching TV or something along those lines but once you actually log in you can actually tell the difference. I actually noticed a big difference from playing WoW to quitting. When I use to play I for some reason use to be really anxious most of the time.
However, I found myself being more relaxed after quitting. You also notice that unlike WoW you don't have to schedule things around other games. I mean I can always pick up COD or any other game when I need even Skyrim for that matter. You can rarely do that in WoW especially if you are in the middle of a raid.
There are other things that contribute and there is a big difference between playing WoW and other games.
That said I stopped playing for roughly 6 months when SWTOR came out then came back for a couple months for MoP and stopped again, I can't say I've stopped playing for good but I don't have any urge to go back to it either for the time being.

My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn
I'm impressed that a thinly-veiled "I quit" thread has lasted this long.
Honestly, play or don't play, it's up to you. Don't try to coerce people to join you in your decision either way.
I've been playing since vanilla, I play ON and OFF (currently OFF since november because my rogue sucked). It's always the same pattern, which is truely pathetic. I can't manage to play casually, so whenever I get bored and come back to the game, I play 6 hours a day and get the best gear and etc... then after 2-3 months I realize that WoW is all I do and get sick of it and quit.
I never get laid whenever I play wow but when I quit, I end up going to the gym 6 times a week and then get easy pussy after a month of quitting. Actually I don't think I'll ever come back, the game is way too different from what it used to be. The best time to play was during vanilla as an unemployed 20-something dude living in my parents' basement and smoking weed hurrr'day. Those were the days, you wotlk puppies will never know how great it was.
As my priorities in life change, my will to play the game change with it. A few years ago, I would play everyday, almost way too much and have the itch to play more. Now that I have responsibilities, I dread having to raid. Too time consuming, too boring. Down is where this game is going for me. There's just too many other things I need to do, and sitting around playing WoW isn't that high on the list.
