I work over 80 hours a week. The remainder I spend drinking and watching football. Even now I have my laptop out.

I always worked a lot but it got a lot worse when I got divorced about three years ago. It was the only thing that took my mind off my cheating whore ex. It was the only place people treated me like I was valued. It's like a RPG for me at this point. I like to grind. It's the only thing I have in my life.

Why the hell would you not just quit and do something else? You will be successful with that work ethic and with 700k u have little to no risk of being broke ever.

Apparently that is your preference. If you desired happiness you would work less, or work for something in a manner that justifies your efforts. But instead you merely work, like an ox terrified of life without the yoke.

So anyone with an addiction should just resign himself to it?

I told you to work less and your response was "I can't." It seems you're already resigned to your fate. It'd be one thing if you were oblivious and needed to be made aware. But you are aware, and you simply post here seeking sympathy rather than do something about it. I will affirm any poster's efforts to break a harmful addiction, even when the effort is probably doomed. If you don't try, though, there's not much more to be said.

If you're willing to make the effort, maybe some ex-workaholics will have advice.

you're out of your element here mang. biglawlyers and similar types almost all have a compulsion to check bberry, even when they're not expecting anything and wouldnt have to respond right away even if something came up. why? having bad habits that become addictions for various reasons does not mean that whoever has them doesn't "desire happiness"
