Quit WoW Addiction, Win at Life.

It's not impossible.

I was addicted to WoW for about 4 years. During those 4 years I became a monster. I stopped eating, I let me grades drop from A's to C's and D's, I lost a lot of good friends and replaced them with virtual friends that I had never met. WoW for me was an escape from reality, what started out as 4 good friends playing a game together turned into 3 of them leaving and letting 1 turn himself into a loser. During those 4 years I took WoW-cations where I left for a few months and came back. My greatest WoW-cation was when I hit level 70 got full gladiator gear and then quit because the game got boring, I was clean for 5 months. It was only a little after the release of Wrath of the Lich King that I went back to my old server, re-connected with friends I made and then started up my account again. When I started playing on my Winter Break of 8th grade (winter of 2008-2009) I had straight A's until I started playing. I went back to school and because of this game I played sick to come home. I made up a fake excuse saying that "I was up puking all night so I just need to go home and rest" or "Mom, I'm sick" and ended up missing a full 2 weeks of school because of my re-ignited addiction.

It may seem impossible to quit sometimes but what eventually got me to quit was that the game got boring, I realized that I had ruined my life, I ended up spending more time in Kara with my raid and connecting with them more than my friends in real life. Girls I used to know and hang out with started to make fun of me for sitting in the back of the classroom and playing WoW.

Please, try to quit. It will ruin your life. If your reading this and you haven't installed WoW yet, go return the game and pick up Call of Duty, at least you can put that down.

I will say this though, I have made some genuine friends on this game, I still talk to them today and would like to say that not everyone that plays this game is a creepy old guy wanting to have sex with you. I have met some of the players I raided with in real life and they are good people. I am 14 and I have been clean of WoW for almost 1 year.
