Addicted To Runescape

Recommended Posts

After I discovered how to play more efficiently I began to play much more, and this is where I began to realize that I'm addicted. I don't deny that I'm addicted, I've RS for a long time, and probably will continue to. I logged approx 50 days of gameplay on my first main account. After "quitting" and hoping that a helping out a friend by allowing him to change my pass could be the answer to me quitting, I just started back up on my lvl 40 f2p range pure with like 200 total.

 

A couple years later here I am. My current account with 115 days of gameplay has surpassed my old one by far, and I don't have any intentions of stopping. I enjoy the game too much.

 

The thought of "maxing" my character always seem like a joke I would never go after in my life, but the more I play, the more I realize that may end up being the reality. After finishing 99 slayer (which I didn't ever think would happen) my friends asked what was next. I jokinly said maxing total, but the more I play the more I think I might.

 

So to answer your question, yes I am addicted. At times I think it sucks, but when I think about it, I enjoy the game so I don't see it as a bad thing. I am still going to school, and don't let RS get in the way of that. I let my girlfriend, friends, and family keep me grounded I guess you could say. I don't say no to people when they want to spend time with me, because I don't wanna look back later in life and regret never having spent anytime with anyone. It's good to have people that will "ground" you and help keep you away from the computer at times. Makes me really appreciate what else goes on in life aside from RS. Like a lot of people though, I just RS to vill a void in my life. A big void lol.

Bills, roommates, a job, and sex taught me not to be addicted to the game.


The challenge of a mistake is not to avoid it. The challenge of a mistake is dealing with the outcome.

Fill your addiction with something else. Try something else like alcohol, a spouse, or another game. You will eventually find yourself with many things to fill your time.

Please lock this thread. It's just an excuse for kids to go:

 

No I r not addicted, I has sex, girlfriend, learning 100 languages, i drink alchomohols, currently learning to become astronaut so dats pretty kewl rs is just game I r too smart to care about it.

 

There are some good discussions from people relating to the topic starter and I think that's the kind of feedback he wants. Please keep the ego off the thread, it doesn't contribute in the least, and it makes some of you look like tools who value junior high school way too much.

 

As for me, I'm not addicted, but I definetly agree with it filling a void - especially after exams and in winter. It's basically all I do during this time period <3: As long as I'm having fun I think it's ok, but I do get in trouble from wifey about the dishes sometimes haha. <3:

Sounds like you have a problem with people being successful.

 

Having a girlfriend, sex, alcohol, etc is not strange. Languages are needed for travel. Astronaut.. didn't see anybody that said that. But yes, some people do have great careers. Stop hatin'

It's video games, not Runescape. You have to immerse yourself somewhere else. If you don't play scape, you'll just play something else.

I want to play RS more, but everything in this game is so damn boring these days I find it difficult to stay more than 5 minutes without going "[bleep] it." and go do something else.

Why bother playing if its so 'grindy' and boring? Too much emphasis on one thing/skill? Not thought about....oh dear.......I'll have to swear here..................

I've never been addicted to RS. I was 'addicted' to Pokémon as a small child over a decade ago, but since then my I've never been addicted to anything else... except skunk.

When I was in high school I can say for sure that I was addicted. I used to play around 5-6 hours on average daily. But that was a different time, in high school I had all the time in the world to spend on runescape and I don't at all regret spending that much time on this game. I thoroughly enjoyed the game during those days and I wish I could play more currently but university (along with a tough major) really cuts down the amount of time I have to play this game. I would love to play like I used to in high school but I don't think I will ever have that kind of free time again.

 

I do still log in now and again but it is only to do the activities that I truly enjoy. I have no intention of training my skills.

 

So in short, I was addicted, would still have been addicted if he wasn't for real life priorities.

I study Italian, Japanese, train at my MMA gym several few days a week, try to work out as much as possible and get better at guitar. Since RS doesnt help with any of these goals, I try to play it as little as possible, and as efficiently as possible when I do play. Even if an evening of playing RS is more enjoyable than an evening of memorizing kanji... long-term the latter will bring me more happiness you could say. Kinda like grinding real life.

 

Probably the gayest thing I have ever read.

Thanks for your valuable contribution to this thread.

I'm not addicted, but I've conditioned myself to be lazy and reward that laziness with games (like rs, or others). It affected my life for a while, actually. I'd like to say it no longer does, but I would be lying if I tried saying that videogames still weren't my biggest vice.

 

I don't blame RS and other games for what mistakes I made. I made them willingly because I lacked the discipline to resist temptation.

Used to play a lot but after four years of not really playing, I've never had the issue again.

Runescape has majorly affected my life. If I could quit it, I would.

This.

Quit for 7 months last year and was on the verge of suicide.

Then i started playing again and i'm happy as could be

I used to play more than I should have when I was younger. Now I've pretty much quit but return every now and then when I'm bored in order to try out the new content. I play another game for hours a day, but that's only because it gives me something to do. When I have something more important to do (such as real life [cabbage]), I put the game to the side so I can handle my business. I'm not letting video games [bleep] up my college education or social life.

 

If you need to quit, the best thing you can do for yourself is to get your account locked somehow, get banned (most effective thing to do), or just destroy your possessions (even your house) in the game. This doesn't always work for people, but from my own experience, it's a pretty good way to lose interest in the game long enough so that you can get your priorities straight.

So not playing runescape made you suicidal?

 

Whats runescape helping you through then?

 

- Socially?

- Being able to accomplish goals?

- General escape from everyday life?

 

Dont post what you have here (unless your comfortable doing so) but definitely try and figure out what it is doing to help prevent you from being suicidal or depressed, and try to find a way to confront the problem without the game (yeah I know easier said then done).

 

 

Me personally I am lazy, and runescape/video games feed into my laziness and are entertainment, which is why I play so much. I SHOULD be doing other things but I cbf to do so. How I would fix this, its as easy as manning up and doing something. That was the solution in my case anyways, it might be completely different for you.

I would have to say I am most likely addicted but I always tend to put my real life matters first like friends and school and for a while I wasn't even able to play for a couple months straight because so much other stuff had to get done, but I got back to it as soon as I could
