I genuinely dont understand the desire to post on a forum where the topic is something you chose to give up and stop. To each their own and whatnot, but it just seems odd, especially considering much of what I have read since you quit the hobby is that you dont miss it and there are benefits to not participating in the hobby everyone(else) here loves.
