    Only you can answer those questions for yourself. Different people have different ways and different play styles. What works for them may not work for you. For me I play the odd hour during the evening. Weekend I play for a few hours which is when I do some raiding.

    Is possible to play 2 hours a day only? Yes and no. Depends on your schedule.

    complete burnout after three expansion, although luckily i did not play vanilla. Sometimes i come back for a month only to logg on for 5 mins then logg off. Best euros i ever spent.

    I don't. If I want to play and have time, then I play.
    If I don't want to play or don't have time, then I don't.

    When I was younger and had less self control, I used the Parental Controls, however.

    For me, I get home from work around 730 each day and sleep at around 11. I have a lot of things to do in that time.. be it cooking, cleaning, looking after children. I find other things to do with my time. I log on a few hours a week now, if that.. just to do some xmog runs for next expac =P

    I also play other games, just casually, because I feel if I become 'hardcore' in a game, I wont stop playing and wont control myself. Just set expectations.
    since its the dead part of the game.. ie, waiting between last patch and expac, there isn't too much to do anyway.

    TL;DR by having a life.

    Generally after work, family, friends and visitors and other "real life" errands (paying bills, taking care of house, garden, car), the available free time for "hobbies" varies from 0 to 2-3 hours a night.
    Sometimes it's spent raiding in WoW, sometimes watching a movie, sometimes playing xbox, going to movies or whatever. Never really had problems limiting playtime after I left University (while studying it could be "problematic" at times.. too much free time).
