I'm not obsessed with ED, but I am certainly VERY passionate about it. It's a hobby and passion, but - like with all hobbies - it can take over your life if you let it to. It did happen to me last year, where I dedicated WAY too much time to administer and organise my player faction. It was great time for me in ED, we now have most systems (I believe) of all the player factions, we're in the official ED lore and Drew's new book and our small community of (depending on people coming and going) 200-300 players is very active and many of us became close friends, playing other games, meeting IRL etc.
This took a toll on my personal life, as I have neglected some of my friends, but I realised that in time and cut down on the amount of time I commit to my group. This year is certainly going to be different. I still have the passion, but I won't let it take over this time :)
