Default why do chess stars stop playing chess?

I don't understand why some players who become a the "poster kids" of chess suddenly stop playing altogether. Like Tal Shaked, David Arnett, Anna kahn, Josh Waitzkin, Max Dlugy, Joel Lautier, Ferdinand Hellers, among some names.

just curious why people spend so much time to get good and then decide to quit.
