You've already mentioned that familiarity with your opponents is a double edged sword. That said, you need to determine whether you are profiting more from paying attention to your opponents' leaks, or whether you are profiting less since players are playing back at you more when you are making moves. This is a good argument for record-keeping your sessions honestly.
Keep in mind that the biggest players in the world routinely sit at the same table, but keep coming back because either they feel they have an edge on the other regs, or the fish that swim into the mix keep the game profitable even though they might pay off a better player from time to time.
My opinion is that if you continue to make money at this level, and don't feel you or your bankroll are ready to move up in stakes, keep at it.
Best of luck to you.
