I'm in my 20's and retired, actually looking for a condo. I may get a hobby/job like ski instructor or something but for right now I have nothing but free time.
The gear/leveling treadmill was adding an insane amount of stress in my life and I didn't even notice. It was costing me hours of sleep, it was like a constant pressure like I imagine a real job would be. it was horrible. I realized I didn't find the game fun anymore and was just continuing to alieviate a temporary stress/pressure I felt from the 'game' I was getting like 4-5 hours of sleep, seriously. It was crazy.
Now I'm playing LoL and getting 8-9 hours of sleep and actually feel excitement/fun when I play with absolutely no pressure.
GG WoW you are horrible.
Edit: Also, I can do Tribunal cases over morning cereal in LoL and cast scorn upon random strangers, it's great
