I went through the same thing you're going through.
I was BW/Ragnarok Online addict and played those games 24/7 for like a couple of years. After that i met my gf and it made a big impact on my life, i stopped to play like a maniac, and im now working at a decent place ^^
I got quality life, i got time and money.
But i never stopped gaming 100% yet, im still playing bw whenever i get a chance ^^
