I caught and overcame a minor addiction to Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead.
It does bring back the The Sims feeling from my teenage years, but with killer zombies added in.
I especially like going to sleep in that game, and how you need to setup a confy bed for it.
Some further comments at: Section "Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead (CDDA, Cata)".
The way to quit is simple: delete your saves, then get annoyed with slowness of progressing back up, then use built-in debug/cheat menu to overcome that, then it's not fun anymore. This is a major advantage of single player open source games: addiction resistance!
