    Thanks! I managed to quit smoking, drinking, recreational herbs and other loser habits, but I am playing 3 games for at least 5 hours a day. I know it is dumb, but your article shows me how SILLY it is, too. I’ll be quitting/cutting down. . . next week?

    Good luck! Every time you think you’re out, they pull you back in! I can tell you it is an amazing feeling when you’re done. You feel like a bunch of responsibilities have been taken off your shoulders.

    This is an excellent post! I see people throwing hard earned money on virtual objects, be it a house, farm items, whatever! I say, if you’re going to throw money away, geez, give it to charity, or help someone in need! I love the games too but I would never pay CASH money for anything virtual that I can’t touch taste and feel! I’m glad I have an old computer, the graphics keep the games from loading, only after I’ve wasted too much time on them. Maybe my computer knows better than to let smut in? 😉

    Hello fellow PostZoom Winner! ☺

    I must admit to being addicted to MafiaWars, Farmville, Cafeworld & FrontierVille.

    Since I just started with FrontierVille 2 or 3 days ago & I’m still having trouble with the foot my mother tried to cut off, I’ve pretty much stopped playing everything but FrontierVille. I even let my crops wither!!! *thud*.

    Whatever, since I have nothing but time on my hands, it’s not the time suck that it is for people with actual lives.

    Anyway, I like your style! I’ll be stopping by here much more often. 🙂

      Congrats to you too! If you can quit the others, surely you can quit Frontierville. How many raccoon skin caps can one person collect?

    I new I had a problem when I created a Farmville account with my husband’s Facebook profile, just so I could send myself gifts. I gave it up over a year ago and never looked back. Ok, I never looked back because I started obsessively playing Rock Band, but still.

      Good for you! Years later I still have flashbacks… But I’ve also written nearly two books and countless articles and blog posts and done all sorts of things instead of that junk!
