No. Even if you quit tomorrow, Aikido will haunt you. The books in the sports section will call to you. News of another dojo in your area will pique your interest and hold like nothing else will. And sooner or later, as much as you try to fight it, YOU WILL GO BACK! And the madness starts all over again.

Face it: You're doomed. (What's "abandon hope all ye who enter here" in Japanese?)

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

.... you are contemplating (I haven't made any plans yet) a 1,646 mile (2633.6 km) multi-part round trip road trip to follw your sensei to a seminar he's going to teach in Cincinatti.

.... you even consider such a trip because you really liked the dojo there (this one: http://www.aikidocincy.com -- it is an impressive place IMHO) and have been waiting for a chance to go back.

... you feel conflicted because there might be a Francis Fong seminar in Niagara Falls on the same weekend as the Cincy Aikido seminar. (Although the mileage for that one would be shorter.)

Your therapist still knows what you mean when half the words you use are Japanese! (And so do your friends and family....)

My wife doesn't train with me and still knows exactly what I mean when I speak japanese. I talk about this stuff waaaay too much.

When you get a new mobile phone, you spend the first 2 months trying to teach the predictive text Japanese.

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

You're sitting in your office talking... your chair breaks sending fly backwards... UshirioUkemi comes into play and your hands slap the carpet without even thinking... you marvel at your ukemi before you even think to wonder what actually happened.... or why your coworkers are laughing.

I put my right foot in, I put my left foot out, I do the Aikipokey and throw you all about

You wake up at 2 AM on the floor next to your bed in an overhead breakfall position.
You sleep with your boken.
You sit in your work office and cure your boredom by naming every way you could use each everyday object you have as a weapon.

They wouldn't let me go on my works one, seems management had gotten wind of exactly what I thought of the staff in my office and feared a bloodbath. Spoiling my fun

You find yourself in your cubicle at work blending with an imaginary Uke and are so in to it that you are oblivious to the stares from the people walking past your door...
