Goodbye GW2, you’ll be remembered as the best MMO I’ve ever played, and the last.(r/Guildwars2)
I also had to quit GW2 due to it being too addicting. Personal two nickels: quitting video games cold turkey doesn’t work, especially if you haven’t changed your living environment, like the computer with all the potential games is right there in your house/apartment waiting to be played. It is an instant trigger reminding you to play again. My happy medium was strictly sticking to single-player games when I’m solo, and ONLY playing multiplayer/online games with people I have met and know in real life – as a way of socializing. Luckily the few friends that I have are busy and can only play on weekends so it’s working out for now.
A few books that helped a TON in understanding why I had such a hard time quitting:

I hope it works out for you! IMO you are doing the correct thing getting back to old hobbies, but it definitely does take time.
