I've never taken an extended break from ZU! The longest period I can remember without visiting... I think, would have been when Jodd surprised me with a visit on my 19th birthday? I don't think either of us bothered going online for a couple of days.
Even on vacations and stuff, I've always had some sort of internet access.
Yes, I do take a couple breaks, I don't think anyone notices though.
I spend a lot of time online, so I take about, one, probably two days offline (THAT IS LONG TO ME) and spend time with family and friends.
Honestly, it's probably just me, but I find it difficult to stay away from this place, it's like, a huge cafeteria with a bunch of random people you've never met, where we discuss about hating a certain race, and countless other threads that made me laugh my ass off
I don't think I've ever taken a break on purpose. If I'm awake and have access to ZU, I'm usually online unless I'm busy doing something else. The longest I've ever been on a "break" from here was a few days, but that was because of personal reasons and I didn't have access to the internet (because trust me, if I had internet, I would've definitely been online).
Sometimes a few days will pass where I don't have time or the effort to log on. There can be days where there's just nothing interesting going on, and the active threads don't interest me, or I have no awesome insights. I usually log on after a long day, and try to relax, but some days it just doesn't work out.
I try to visit at least one time a day, if not more than one time a day. I usually stay in the games section of the forums. Sometimes make actual posts like in General Chit-Chat.
I aslo do alot of chattotingt through VMs.
