This is a discussion on It's gone within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Help! I have no urge to play poker!
I went on a 4 week holiday over Xmas and New Year and didn't play any
I went on a 4 week holiday over Xmas and New Year and didn't play any poker at all. For the first week I did read a bit of Phil Gordon's book to keep my brain thinking of poker but this soon stopped as I was having too much fun on holiday!
Now I've got back I have absolutely no urge to play poker. I didn't come on here for a week whereas before I was on everyday, albeit lurking/reading. I've picked up a poker magazine a couple of times but soon got bored of the articles.
Before I left I was playing poker regularly, enjoying it and making profits.
Has this happened to any of you guys before? Advice?

Mine has been gone for about a year. In the meantime I've been hanging out here, soaking up info like a sponge. The urge is starting to return as my confidence rises.
My advice is to play in CC events. The buyins are low, the competion is good, and you can have a lot of fun and meet great people at the same time.
I'm planning to take my own advice more.
