Has anyone experience in cutting out anime from your life? I'm thinking of doing a NoAnime September and seeing how it will turn out.

Anime has consume my life and I keep buying anime merchandise, watch anime all day, and have turned my room into an anime haven. It made me fap all the time to anime succubi and I am always weak and tired now, and when I am I watch some anime to feel happy - it is like a drug.

Even after finishing anime it doesn't stop for me as I go on gelbooru and look up pictures of anime characters I like.

So does anyone have experience quitting anime or cutting down on this habit?


Just do other things? Or just don’t fap or buy stuff?


>does anyone have experience quitting anime
they are all dead now


just dont buy anime shit and throw everything away or sell it online


If you feel like watching anime has become a problem for you, limiting the amount of anime you see every day is a good start. I wouldn't quit cold turkey like you're suggesting with NoAnime, but do it gradually instead. There's a high failure rate in quitting something all at once. If you watch anime 12 hours a day, cut it down to 9 hours. Do that for a week. Next week go from 9 hours to 6. The week after, from 6 to 3.

I haven't seen any anime in over a year. It wasn't a deliberate choice to stop watching though, it's just that I've had my fill.


Find something else that takes up your time. I also spend a lot of time watching animu, particularly on weekends and holidays. However, work and living by myself means I have a lot of other stuff to attend to, thus can't get glued to anime and "forget everything", as much as I wanted to really.

I don't think quitting anime is the answer OP. If it makes you happy, why quit?


it's impossible to spend your days watching anime 95% of it is complete garbage


There are thousands of anime though so even if only 5% of them are good that's still hundreds of shows.


What else am I supposed to do? Eat shit?


If I quit anime I'd have nothing else to do. Anime is a good time-killer anyways, if I cut it out I'd just be staring at the wall or browsing imageboards even more than I already do. Not worth it.


Read books instead.


I do occasionally, outside of imageboards and anime books are my main thing. I have a shitty attention span with reading though unfortunately and it takes me months to finish the books, especially since I try to take notes and remember what I've read.

Anime contributes nothing to a person life besides enjoyment (if you wanna call it that) or time killing, if you are the type of guy who gets off to moe than you only watch anime in the hope of being immersed into their world. apart from all these typical "just don't do X" response the quickest way that I have been able to stop watching anime is when I am in a certain place, for example. I used to watch a crapton of anime in school because I just hated being there so much so that I became "the guy who sleeps and watched anime in class" (I was so oblivious to this until people started telling me about it), when i'd get home however I would just find the motivation to watch anime just gone because I had gotten used to being comfortable in the computer lab after school and watching anime. I'd also say if you want to stop anime then dive deeper into the background of what makes anime. I for once stop watching some of my favorite manga/anime when I read some interviews and noticed that the author/director is a total hack. Dive deeper into anime and see what work in it or what doesn't. Hope this helped, feel free to response. sorry for bad english


Sounds like you're just obsessive, and you chose anime. Just be glad it isn't heroin.
