How long could you last without manga? For me, I would voluntarily go without manga for a week or so, but if I had zero access and had to go without for a long time, I wouldn't complain either

Months. I spent much of last year reading nothing. X'D So I can last months without it. Even now the only series I really read are the ones that I work on for some groups.

It depends on the circumstances. I've been known to kind of forget about manga for a week or more after discovering a really cool series of books or falling in love with a TV show available on-line. While on vacations (either an overnight to DC or two weeks visiting family in WI), I very rarely remember to read the manga I packed. But in everyday life (getting up, going to school, going to work, church activities, hanging out with friends), I have a hard time without reading at least a little bit of manga...

i can go for a long time without manga, but only if i have no other chance. If i´m not in the mood to read manga, i watch anime (ike this weekend: watched kodomo no jikan and moetan, but didn´t read any manga). Manga is an important part of my life, i could never let it go forever

As long as I had something else to occupy my time, then I can pretty much say that I can go without manga indefinitely.

I've lasted a few months without it.
I just focus on other things.
Find other types of entertainment...like kdramas. laugh

So far, the longest I've gone without manga was about 5 months. But currently, with school and friends and all, I read manga maybe once a month. I've sort of lost interest in continuing some series/picking up new ones. It'll probably change once I go back home next Friday.

I would say a week or two in my current state; it depends on my life.

It depends for me. I can go for more than weeks for sure and maybe months.

I've clicked "A few days", actually I find myself drawing manga all the time when I'm in a boring lesson (which is quite often), but I think if I had to quit, I'd complain for about two weeks and then lose interest more and more. I'd probably find something else to kill time, sooner or later...

but I could never quit reading manga as long as I have the possibility to read (which means as long as there's still book shops and the Internet) laugh

Usually a month or two. It depends whether I have time and whether there's a serie I want to read...

I don't NEED manga in the sense that I would go crazy without it... but if it's available then I would read it. Could live without it though.
