Tell-Tail Signs

10 Tell-Tail Signs to tell that you are addicted to World of Warcraft :

  1. 1) You spend a good deal of your time at work free time at work reading up the best build combos and specs for your current character on WoW forums
  2. 2) You discuss different builds and specs with your self-confessed WoW addicted colleagues at work.
  3. 3) You type in the subject heading "LFG" when trying to get a lunch group together
  4. 4) The first thing you do once you rush home from work is to turn on your computer and log on to WoW
  5. 5) You turn up late to all your friends' gatherings because you were trying to finish off an Instance or BG
  6. 6) You rather stay at home playing WoW than go out with your friends
  7. 7) You wake up at 3am in the morning to log on and try to get the Arena Chest (hoping there are less people around fighting for the chest).
  8. 8) You happily tell your boyfriend you got 10 HK (honor kills) when he asks you how your day was
  9. 9) You explain to him you just made 20G on AH while your boyfriend starts massaging your shoulders
  10. 10) You realise it's 2am (2 hours past your boyfriend's birthday !!). You now realise why he was giving you a nice massage (he is now soundly sleeping in bed). You put your character in stealth mode, go over to your sleeping boyfriend, wake him up and say 'Happy Birthday'. He gives you a slight smile before falling back into his deep slumber. You contemplate whether or not to crawl into bed as well. You decide against it and turn your attention back to WoW. Because it's nearly 3am (Arena Chest drop time - only happens every 3 hours) and you still have a long way to go before winning 12 trinkets to complete the quest.


Humm... I am so dead. (For those wondering, 8 - 10 are actual chain of events from last night). :P

And so.. Yes, today is his Birthday. I hereby solemnly promise not to log onto WoW ... Tonight.

I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight. I promise not to log onto World of Warcraft tonight....
