    I've tried it. My g-friend got my game and kept it to help me focus on work. So I secretly went and bought another copy. And I am alive again!

    Wow. If civ3 is such an integral part of your life you should really examine your priorities. Seriously.

    I haven't played any Civ3 for the longest while now; and hey I live! :D J/k.

    Civ3 isn't that all-encompassing for me. :)

    A world without Civilization is no world at all.

    Life without Civ III? I'd play Alpha Centauri all day. Without that, maybe Civ II or Civ I.

    Sadly, youre quite right. I often come home after a long day's research, ready to work, only to find her sitting playing it on our house's computer.

    It's really quite galling. But then, I get my revenge after dark, since she sleeps well and I am willing to play my copy without sound if necessary!

    Lately I distribute my playing time with Tropico and Empire Earth, I didn't play Civilization, anyone, in this year yet.

    Well, I've got a girlfriend since two months, so I spend more time on the forum (at "work", where they don't let me play civ) than playing civ3. Which means, that when I've got a moment for myself at home, I can make up for "quality time";)

    Besides that, I think you might want some other hobbies. Or else rush buy the multiplayer addon, so you'll have at least SOME contact with other people...

    P.S. "See the sun for the first time in 4 years"... I don't know how much time I've spend on civ1 and colonization, but before civ2 came I hadn't seen daylight in nearly a decade...(seriously, when did civ1 came? 1990?)

    I'm a lucky fellow. My girlfriend plays almost more CIV3 than I.

    But she's not so hooked as to spend her working hours speaking to distant people about her addiction on the internet.
    Not yet :)
