How should I quit this video game called world of warcraft?

It has taken up so much of my life it's ridiculous. I'm 16 and I have no social life anymore, I just get home from school, get on, and next thing I know it's 12 o'clock, I get like 5 hours of sleep a night. I just love the game, but I hate it also, I wish it never existed. But how should I quit? I just don't want to feel the urge to play anymore. If you don't know, World of warcraft is an online videogame, an MMO with many players. Thanks for any ideas! (deleting it etc. won't help, it's easy to reinstall it).
The game s just so much fun, and it makes real life boring, that's probably why I like it so much, I can do things in the game that I could never do in real life.

ok, i know a person *cough* my mom, who loves WOW she would come home and be on it all the time, which made me hate that game, i liked it when i played it but i hated that she would play it, but soon she came to realize that the game wasnt real, and that spending days on it moves you further away from the real world, playing this game gets you no where.

Here, gradually ween yourself off the game play every other day

Set a time limit to get off everyday. Like the first week you get 4 or 5 hours daily then gradually bring the time limit down to an hour or no time each day. If your having troubles getting off when the times up, get a family member to reinforce the rule.
