Re: My gaming addiction to adderall.

It's a hard road. You have taken the first step, which is deciding to quit. My advice to you is to see if any other medication can help you aside from the stimulants. You seem to have done well without them for the bulk of your time at university.

I also think it would be a good idea to try and put the game in perspective. I was also heavily into World of Warcraft for a while. I was a raid healer, and the game for me consisted of a wall of text. Threat meters, health and mana levels, buff and debuff timers, and boss mods. It ultimately clicked for me when someone mentioned the graphics in some raid or another, and I realized I hadn't seen them. I didn't even know what the bosses looked like. The game might as well have been text based. It was all numbers, and pressing keys to make sure the numbers didn't vary too much. It was another job, except I had to put in more than 40 hours a week, and I didn't get paid. That was enough to end it for me.
