I would say you're not quite mentally past that part of your life. Not trying to offend you or anything, but just making a guess based on personal experience and a few articles/studies on the matter.

If it's just the occasional 5 hour marathon, I'd say you have the addiction under control.

There are a few studies out there that have found a strong relation to parental relationships and gaming (specifically online, includes farmville) addictions.
