I figured this might help because I, as a DotA player, managed to stop the addiction. So, how about this 5 tips from me on how to stop playing DotA?

5 Tips on How to Stop Playing DotA:

1. Divert your attention to sports. The more you think about your body, the lesser the addiction can be because you are focusing on the development of your body which DotA can’t be of help in any way.

2. Ask for a reward. It’s like exchange DotA to something else, like a reward. It’s like, you’ll just play 1 game of DotA per week, and the reward would be an eat-all-you-can every weekend if you didn’t fail the task.

3. Set your goals. If you have other priorities or goals in life, you’ll eventuallly forget about DotA.

4. Delete your Warcraft III Frozen Throne and Garena/RGC clients in your computer. No files, no game to play. 🙂

5. Rely on inspiration. Those inspiration can set you free. If you are inspired by another person, then DotA would just come second. It’s very effective. Girls are one source of inspiration. So, LOVE can set you free from DotA slavery.

I hope this set of tips created by me can help you control your DotA gaming. Always keep in mind that all TOO MUCH can destroy you. 🙂
