    i was addicted to graffiti, but then i grew up. it's still a big part of my life, but it's not as much of a priority as it used to be. it's kinda sad

    Graffiti is not an addictive substance. Its an addictive subculture that allows you to voice your opinion to other like-minded individuals that read.
    If you like to the feeling of freedom to say whatever you want, you do it.

    but, Graffiti is by large an act of non violent protest.

    "To injure an opponent is to injure yourself. To control aggression without inflicting injury in the Art of Peace. "

    "One does not need buildings, money, power, or status to practice the Art of Peace. Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is the place to train."

    "Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead."

    "Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love."
    [Morihei Ueshiba]

    ive tried to stop graff once.
    it completley fucked my life, in a good way, from my perspective, but hey there's only so much you can do without it getting in the way, but that failed after i forgot i was stopping and remembered about a week later. point is even if you try to quit, you cant. also when your psychologist says you got a problem and is suggesting sky jumping as an alternative.

    ^ I quit for about 4 years. Hard to think of this now. Today I go at it 110%, I'm totally consumed by it, think it, paint it, shit it, whatever. It's a total addiction so get over it.
