It's not that many players actually would prefer the fantasy world, it's just incredibly addicting. I play it just as someone would play CoD or Halo, just to entertain myself.
I also only mentioned my girlfriend not wanted to fuck, never brought up lesser stuff

Well I played a game called Runescape for 4 or 5 years, and quit around a year ago. I honestly just quit naturally, aka through irl.
But to help you, I'll give you some options to not urge you to really play, and make you fade away from the thought..
Try playing sports in school (you said your 16, well I just turned 17), and me playing lacrosse really helped me just get off the computer in general. Also I do cross country. Playing sports won't only get you off that topic, but you meet so many people, and it's just an awesome experience.

Also for another option (if you think it's to late to try a sport, which is understanble), you could try getting a job. It's pretty hard to find a job, but if you get one, think about it: you make cash and kill time.

Take this from a past addicted gamer, who now quit because I do both.. Play sports and work on top of school.

Hope this helped.

Run XC, run track and snowboard in winter, and I play lacrosse. I can't get a job till my next birthday (parents would need to drive me around). I am in honors chemistry, honors math, and honors english. I have about 30 books in my ass daily. I finish my studies before I eat dinner, then after that it's too dark to go outside. So I am stuck inside for another 3+ hours and get bored.

Well as long as you don't start swapping those activity time periods for wow, I don't see anything wrong with that equation.

No one chastises little pre-pubescent 10 year olds for playing Halo 3 hours a day, meanwhile going on a racial, sexist, and generally psychotic online rampage, so....

I can't stand online shooters anymore because of the above.

Easiest way to get rid of urges is to sell your account. I used to get the feeling of wanting to start up again until I realized it would cost $100+ to buy the game and all the expansions again.

I used to like Counter Strike. Would play it for an hour or two after coming home. But since I didn't play often, I'd just get pawned by the 12 year old CS masters to the point where it's demoralizing.....

They made it so you can download the most recent expansion your account was upgraded too. I have thought about selling it but i don't want to put up with some random guy and all of that stuff. If I did relapse I would play on a private server so it's free, and less addicting.

switch to a game you can play on your own time. FPS/RTS games are great because they require smaller amounts of time to actually play one game and walk away or play another. You don't have to start a raid and go through it with the fear of missing out on something if you logout.

I'd be on a private server so like a FPS I play one PVP game and i'm off . No stupid raiding on it, but thanks for the input haha
