Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

How to Cope with Skyrim Addiction

Posted on Wednesday, November 30 @ 10:20:19 Eastern by


Hi,

My name's Anthony, and I'm hopelessly addicted to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It all started as a little harmless dragon slaying, but now, it's affecting all aspects of my life, especially my health. I'm not sleeping, I rarely eat anything aside from what I find in my travels, I hold my pee until it burns with the intensity of a dual-cast Master Destruction Flames spell. I'm up all hours of the night. When I do finally make it to bed, I stare at the ceiling, dreaming of weapon enchantments, ingredients for potions, and embarking on epic quests. I'm delusional. I'm even beginning to see perks to upgrade when I gaze into the night sky.

But I'm not only neglecting myself, I'm neglecting my family, too. I spend more time in bed with my Nord wife, than I do with my real wife. After all, sleeping next to her doesn't boost my skills at all. I've begun shouting at my daughter, as many as three words at once! I am so over-encumbered with shame.

The truth is, I don't plan on stopping anytime soon, there are far too many miscellaneous quests on my list. I just need help coping until I've reached a higher level. Also, the withdrawals scare the stamina out of me. Does anyone know of an alchemy recipe that will remove the poison of night sweats and cold-turkey shivers?

Skyrim really is overtaking my life. How do you cope with your Skyrim addiction?
