Some things just can't compete.
We all have it. That one thing you'll stop everything else for.
I'm not talking about family stuff here, I'm talking about other games, hobbies, things you do that compete with your miniature wargaming time.
For example, you find yourself with an hour or so free time and you decide to do some painting/modeling/gaming etc... and then all of a sudden you find out you could (insert other hobby here) and you drop your original plans like a bad habit.
For me, it's watching Top Gear and playing LEGO Star Wars.
I'm not talking about the American copycat version of Top Gear, but the original BBC version that I very rarely ever get to watch. Even my Wife knows the attraction and will find it on t.v. and then lure me into watching it so we can spend some time together relaxing.
And my Daughter knows that she can set up the game system and call me downstairs anytime of the day to play a few chapters of LEGO Star Wars or even Indiana Jones. I prefer Star Wars because I love to see the Stormtroopers explode into a handful of pieces when you kill them.
So what is it for you?
We all have something, but right now I need to get back to painting.
