Re: Addicted to MUDD
I realize this is an older thread, but I have a lot of experience with this. Posting in case this is still a concern or someone else wanders across this thread. I started playing MUDs in the late 80's and continued with various MUDs/MMOs for decades. At times it was my life - if I wasn't working, I was playing. When I got married, this became a very sore topic. I had friends and history wrapped up in my online games.
What I came to realize is that my partner had to take priority over my gaming. It wasn't easy. When things got rough in the marriage, I would find my way back to the games I loved. In the end, I stopped playing online games. I needed to be able to pause the game, put it down, turn it off, whenever I needed to focus on meeting my partner's and the marriage needs.
If you can set boundaries, where your partner agrees that it's okay for you to play during certain dates/times, then maybe you can get it to work. For me, even if I got an agreement from my partner, she still resented it and led to unnecessary tension. That was her issue (If I'd been studying languages or music she wouldn't have had an issue with it) but it wasn't worth the tension in my marriage to continue playing online games.
To answer the original question if it's addiction - I don't know. It really depends on how you define addiction. Does it negatively affect your work or relationships? If it does, then it's still something that needs to be addressed.
