The Sims is a trap. I had to quit cold turkey because I wasn’t sleeping anymore. I was spending every hour making sure my Sims lead their best lives and meanwhile I was forgetting to eat and sleep
OMG, I KNOW. -.-;;; That’s why I end up “forgetting” it exists for months on end. Because it is SUCH a time suck and I can’t get away from it! -.-;;; Fortunately, once everything is stable enough to kind of run on autopilot if it needs to, I get bored. And then I can break out of its hold for a while. ^_~ It probably helps that at least half the appeal for me is the decorating/house building.
