When you are working 70-80hrs a week you will only think about food and sleep by the time you get home.

One of my friends used to play Maple story, he needs to do his homework. He happended to meet a GM in the game and told the GM to ban him because he needed to do his homework. well... the GM did ban him for a period of time.
Take a look at this video:
Hope this helps.

To the OP, you say you wish to quit gaming, what do you intend to do instead? I totally agree with the other comments here, I find whenever I want to change my habits, I find something else I want to do so it will fill up my time. Otherwise, I'm just sitting there doing nothing and getting tempted again!

They can't let go of that controller/keyboard because it excites them too much.
The only way to get rid of a habit is slowly reduced of how may game hours you do
and find another project to find yourself to. One way I did it was sports and a Job.

how strong is you desire to stop? The fact that you have asked for help says a lot.
cancel your game subscriptions. cancel your internet connection, sell your computer. Yes it is drastic. IF your not willing or committed, it will not work. This is true for any addiction.
1. Explore your world - Chances are, you play games on the same computer or tv in the same room. One of the best ways to help you fight the urges to play is to put yourself in a different environment. Take a walk, visit a friend, go to a different part of your house, whatever it takes to keep you away from that one room.
2. Call in support - You are not alone. Fighting an addiction by yourself is difficult, but with the help of others, it is much easier to kick the habit. Find a friend, a loved one, or even a fellow gamer to help keep you accountable to your game plan. Have them help you keep track of how often you play and to encourage you whenever you're feeling down. Having someone there can make it that much easier to quit.
3. Find a new hobby - If you're a dedicated gamer, you probably spend about 20+ hours a week playing video games. Now that you're on the path to being unplugged, you'll find yourself with a lot of extra time on your hands. The worst obstacle to a recovering gaming addict would be to be bored. Isn't that why most people play games in the first place? To get over their boredom? So do yourself a favor and find a new hobby that you can learn and enjoy (just don't get addicted to that either!)

Ok... the thing is... I want to quit gaming... I'm addicted.. I really want to quit, but I can't afford professional help. Please help me... Honestly.. I'm desperate.
Get yourself involved with some sort of community group. Do anything that requires you of getting out of your house for at least a couple days a week. If this is what you feel must be done, you need to get your mind on other things. The only way to do this is to fill your schedule with constant things every day, and after a couple days you'll be out of the habit of video games.

I disagree. I usually takes me a couple months to break out of a habit?
You really think a life long habit can be rid of in a couple days???

you need to uninstall the game(s)
have a friend change your OS login password and only allow yourself to use the guest account(this method will worth perfectly for a noob computer user)
re-format and use a non-gaming-friendly OS.... LINUX? win95/98 maybe? VISTA! lol
get creative theres a million ways.
