Time for WoW Rehab?


Nope! Well… not yet.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m still your friendly neighborhood WoW newbie.

Unlike most of my mates here at WoW Gold Pig, I can assure you that I’m definitely far from developing an addiction. Long, long way to go, baby.

Though I must say, sometime last week I was driving home in a hurry because my folks were coming to visit (Ha! And you thought I couldn’t wait to log in) that I suddenly had a holy-crap-i-think-i-just-aggroed-the-cops moment. Also, at one point the WoW log in screen song became my constant LSS and I caught myself unconsciously humming it, fortunately. See? Not so bad.

I mean, I know of a few pigs (you know who you guys are) who have actually resorted to canceling a date just because their guild needs another for their raid and wasting WoW Gold for repair fees just wasn’t an option. Granted it was a first date, but still. Did I mention she looks like that Blair chick from Gossip Girl?

Anyway, the good news is that even if my hardcore hoggies are, well, hardcore, they would never shift to extremely obsessed mode forcing them to skip food and sleep, like this guy over here. Okay, so maybe sleep could remain an option but food is a MUST!

To those dudes who have adopted zombie lifestyles, it’s time you get help. And lucky for you, there’s a new WoW rehab facility to cure that sickness. Located in Fall City, Washington, ReSTART is a recovery center that specializes on video game and Internet addiction. As a residential treatment program, patients could spend 45 days without computer access, trading it for household chores, daily counseling sessions and weekly therapy.

All that for $15,500!

Better save up big time, bro. Or you could probably start cleaning your room (yeah, shoving stuff under the bed will do for now), taking out your neighbor’s dog for a walk (and get cash on the side)… you get the picture.

Get a life. And I don’t mean a virtual one. WoW Gold Pig. Caring about gamer lives since 2009.

I really like the way medical experts tend to make money out of this internet and gaming addiction. ;D

"45 days without computer access"? Are you kidding me? I'd better be called an addict but I won't quit playing wow and that's a promise
