So, it was recently mentioned to me by someone very close to me that he doesn't think that I could stop doing this, even if I wanted to. That it's become such a part of me, that to put it down and walk away would be tantamount to destroying a part of myself. Not sure what I think/feel about it, but I'll admit to having to give some grudging thought to the possibility that he might be right.
What about the rest of you? Are you stuck, could you walk away, would you ever want to?
