OMG: Civilization V is ruining my life. Been clocking in 12 hours on weekends and 4 hours on weekdays. I need help.

  1. Been there. I really have no advice to give, other than stop playing though. You just need to not play the game. You are probably in a mindset right now where all you even think about is strategizing on what your Civ is going to do next, even when you aren't playing. You should try to find something else to occupy your time for a bit, and you'll find yourself drawn away from Civ fairly easily.
    You may feel addicted, but you aren't. So just stop playing.

  2. This is why I uninstall it during school terms. Otherwise, there is no reprieve from Civ. madness.

  4. Every few months I binge on Civ for four or five days. Thankfully it doesn't usually last longer than that.

    Like 1 said, think about other stuff during the time you're not playing. Your mind can go wild thinking about the strategy even while you're off your computer. Don't let it do that! If necessary, read a book while you're in transit and during breaks.

  8. I used to love Civ V as well. The best way to quit is to play for 20 hours straight and then you won't want to touch it again.
