Is anime an addiction?
>>
You mean addictive?
>>
>>139814386
Living is an addiction. Just try quitting it, I bet you're making excuses for not being able to quit it. The truth is you can't drum up the will to make yourself stop being alive, you don't want to stop being alive, because you're hopelessly addicted to it.
>>
I could stop if I wanted to I swear.

>>139814386
No but 4chan is.

Everything can be an addiction

>>

Everything can be an addiction.

As an actual addict, no

What?

>>139814386
No, but my dick is an addiction to your mom.
>>
>>139817966
Name one thing that can't become an addiction.

Having an addiction is like adding whatever activity/substance it is to your basic living requirements (oxygen, food, water). Stopping is like trying to hold your breath until you pass out.

If you're like that with anime, yes you have an addiction
>>
>>139814386
Not really. Just a means to escape reality.

What are you talking about? Once you start you can't stop.

>Is anime an addiction?
No, its Japanese animation
>>
>>139817966
You what? Everything can be an addiction, but the addiction is brought upon themselves.
>>
>>139818279
True but once you have done it you won't do it again.
>>
>>139817966
You moron, if anything can become an addiction it means it's the person's fault for being addicted

Itself no, but some sub genre's I'd say can be addictive. I for instance cannot stop watching / reading either Non Non Biyori, Aria or Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, I need the healing in my life.

This.
I'm addicted to shoujo romance.

Stuff like Love Live, Fate and idolmaster convinces me it can be

>>139814386
The real question is, are addictions wrong? Is it wrong to escape life? Maybe that is just the justification a society gives itself for being angry at people who aren't giving it anything.
>>
>>139819889
Addictions aren't wrong as long as it doesn't kill you or stop your every day life.

For example your addiction shouldn't interfere with work or school. Shoot up heroin but get to work tomorrow and do your job.

>>139814386
no, but (You)s are

>>139820138
Thanks for the advice, corporate drone.

>>139820529
It applies to school and anything else in life, not just work.
>>
>>139820652
Oh yeah school, that place where they brainwash you into becoming the government's slave.
>>
>>139817966
Retard.
>>
>>139820694
It applies to your hobbies too faglord.
Or your mommy asking you to take out the trash.

If the addiction prevents you from something you'd do otherwise it's bad.
>>
>>139820780
My hobby is heroin and my mommy is dead.
>>
>>139820138
That is literally the definition of addiction though.

The difference between a habit and addiction is that you don't stop even when it's damaging your work/school/family/heath etc.

I used to shoot heroin and go to work every day. It didn't effect that part of my life, but something somewhere has to give to make way for it.
>>
>>139821047
I'm not saying that doesn't make it an addiction. I'm saying it's fine as long as it doesn't put your life on halt.
>>
>>139814386
no
enertainment=/=addiction
>>
/a/ is an addiction tbf lads
>>
>>139814386
It's only an addiction if it's a problem and it's only a problem if it makes you dysfunctional. To be dysfunctional would mean to shirk all responsibilities and productivity for the sake of your addiction.

Otherwise it's a hobby.
>>
>>139814386
Who cares?

Aslong as you enjoy it at some level it's alright because in reality, only your personal feelings matter in this world because a person's own existence is the only thing they will ever truly care about
>>
Ask yourself if you can get addicted to movies, music or fucking paintings. Anime is just fucking drawings it's not special.
>>
>>139823298
You can be addicted to all those things.

>>139814386
No, it's a curse in disguise.
>>
Since I started using anime, I've noticed a sharp drop in my attention span. It's gotten to the point where I can no longer focus on anything longer than about 25 minutes. I can't watch movies anymore. I struggle with regular TV shows. I'm getting no where in my video games. Anime is destroying my life and I can't stop.
>>
no!
