Writer's Block: Gaming Marathons

Where do you draw the line between habit and addiction? What's the longest uninterrupted period of time you spent gaming?

Obviously I'm not a hardcore gamer because my answer is probably like 8 hours or something like that. *rolls eyes* I've never done gigantic weekend marathons where I just play and play and play with no breaks for sleeping. Mostly that's because I have other things I do with my time, like teach and knit and write. I can't do those things when I'm gaming so I have to take breaks.

Plus, my Fibro doesn't let me sit still for more than a few hours at a time without having to get up and work out all my muscles. But back in my WoW days before I had Fibromyalgia, I know I did entire days of gaming where I only stopped for food and bathroom breaks. Maybe it's more than 8 hours. But the fact that I can't give a solid number is probably a good indicator that I don't do a lot of gaming marathons.

That doesn't mean I don't spend a lot of time gaming. I'm just pretty good about stopping for long breaks.
