    Earlier today I uninstalled World of Tanks, for the...something time the last ten years.

    This time I took it one step further as I also deleted my account. Almost.
    It's going to take 40 or 45 days to finalize.

    So, it is entirely up to me if I let it expire or not. Time will tell.

    I have spend almost a decade on this game, a ton of money and even more time.

    That's the major reason I decided this time to stop it for good.

    It takes away time from everything else, most importantly, other games.

    Let's see if I can manage to complete the process.

    Funny thing, when I finished with the procedure, my first thought was, let's play some wot.

    Meets the legal definition of addiction... Good luck.

    Don't worry, we have a great support system here to help him. Calliers will be along shortly to transition him to a new addiction. ;)

    One day later and I must have wanted to play the game at least 5-6 times.
    Interesting.

    You need a fidget device. Not a spinner though. Something like a fidget cube. I got one for a co-worker, and it keeps him distracted real good. He's an adict too. Self destructive kind. He's addicted to running his mouth off.

    We're still trying to get him to pay attention though, but at least the meetings are.. quieter.

    Thanks.
    So far I am taking my mind off by watching videos, twitter, instagram, other games, cocaine, facebook.

    I kid I kid, facebook is very bad and I am not going back to it, I quit it almost a decade ago.

    Not only I listened to the song (which obviously I am aware of), I played both of them at the same time. .

    You know.. if you reinstall the game, and continue to team kill, you'll get banned. Can't play after that, so.. problem solved.

    That's a good way of cheating , although you are just messing with me. :p
    But no, even if I tried that, it would be impossible, team killing has been made impossible in most cases. There is no team damage any more. Also, just because I am having a bad day I don't want to ruin others'.

    No, seriously, I thought you could get banned for a month for aggressive team killing. It would have forced you to stay away from the game for at least a little while.

    Few more days have passed. I have to say...I feel better about it every day.
    I think of the game perhaps no more than once a day.

    I sometimes feel bad that I don't play League of Legends anymore, a game which like you are addicted, or were, to World of Tanks, I too, was addicted to. Now I still miss the account I sold, but two things give me solace. 1. I'm not addicted anymore and it doesn't take up every waking hour of mine. 2. I basically don't mind since there are no achievements in League anyway, so you play and have nothing to show apart from skins and chromas and other cosmetics.
