A short while ago, I moved with my job, which like many of us is overly demanding of my time, so I stopped any WitP play for about six months. I’d say that is the longest in many years over many versions of War in the Pacific (WitP AE, WitP, Gary Grigsby original WitP, and maybe even Guadalcanal on the Apple IIc).

Sometimes a break is good. When you come back to the game, you realize just how good it is.

Thx

Well my old box died about 7 weeks ago, leaving me hanging around September 44 in a DBB-B scenario #28(?) game against the IJ AI. I was upset to lose that action, 'cos I was really starting to bring the hurt - but mebbe it was for the best, as I needed to focus on social/family life for the holidays!

Anyhow, I've now got a new laptop, quite a speedy thing, got it set up w/ Java, Tracker & CombatReporter are on-line, so I'm starting a new DBB-B scenario #30 game against the AI IJ.

Actually in your statement here lacks how much beneficial for your own lifetime, health and success, had been being without this dangerous addiction;

I stopped in 2010 (burnt out from alpha/beta I guess). Came back in 2014. Starting back from a life-enforced 6 month break.

There is a beneficial case for this dangerous addiction.....After returning to the game my blood pressure declined. I found moving pilots in and out of the training pools for hours to be very calming!

Usually every year I walk away for several weeks to a couple of months. Once for nearly 7 months. (Of course nobody noticed!)

Once I acquired it, not very long. Lately I've not even taken my usual 3 or 4 day hiatus to play something else. I can't even begin to tally the hours I've wast... invested in this beast.

Every year I stop playing for several months both in the spring and again in the fall because of tax season.

Feeding the dogs....30 seconds. Throw it on the floor and back to the game.
Feeding the cat.....She can fight the dogs for food.
Letting the dogs outside......They can use the Cat's litter box.
Bathroom breaks....3-5 minutes. Unless I bring the laptop with me.
Meals with family....20 minutes. If I am cooking, 20 minutes and 30 seconds.
Doing the dishes.....Let the kids do them.
"Honey Do" List......Kids can put in the new redwood deck just fine. No reason why a 10 year old cannot handle a skill saw. Has to learn sometime.
Sleep.....3-4 hours.....Max.
Family Holidays......6-7 hours. Unless I can sneak off. Laptop in the bathroom works.

Looks like family holidays.

Ditto. Occasional pauses but not for long without at least one match going...
