    Age

    At what age do you consider to be old and you leave your childhood behind you? you know the time when you 'get sensible'?

    Things like:

    Stop drinking fizzy drinks
    Wearing shoes instead of trainers
    Buy a middle of the range practical car
    Stop going to the pub with your mates
    Settle down and have children
    Have dinner parties
    No longer eat sweets
    Listen to music that is at least a decade old
    Stop modifiying your car
    Wear shirts and jumpers and no sport wear
    Play golf on a Sunday afternoon
    Start to not understand computers and the interweb
    Take walks in the country side
    Own a smoking Jacket


    Just curious at what sort of age you think you will fit into the stereo typical 'I am no longer a kid anymore' part of your life - the bit just before you go old wrinkly and die

    Nothing to do with what I said I hope

    I say really when you have proper commitments like having children and such

    Nothing young about going to the pub with some friends though

    Really hard question. I know 18-21 year olds that love whiskey, playing golf, going down the pub on friday night and not going clubbing, wear shoes instead of trainers all the time. Then I know 40 year old that go to clubs, wear trainers all the time, hate golf, still drink fizzy drinks etc.

    For most of them I'd say around 30. Which comforts me as I'm turning 21 this week and really thought I was leaving childhood behind for good..but looks like I've got nearly a decade left of fun!

    Some of those shouldn't be on the list though.

    Stuff like going to the pub - see loads of old and young people doing it. Regulars that are there for lunch and all night, normally they are retired and have nothing better to do
    playing golf - all ages play it
    eating sweets - From very young kids, to OAPs eating Werthers originals


    There is no set age, just whatever you feel comfortable with. I have no intention of no longer drinking Pepsi once I reach X age, or buying a practical car etc.

    Things like that will happen for a reason, practical car when you have kids, no fizzy drink once all your teeth have rotted and fallen out and your worried about it effecting the glue holding your new ones in

    exactly Oh and you have as much time in the world my friend, at 30 you have only been an adult for 12 years if you live to be say 80 thats 50 years of being old, boring and sensible.

    Age is what you make it, not something you should conform to.

    you missed my point dave in a way thats exactly what I am saying even the stereotypical old things in life are not just for old, or are the stereotypical young things in life just for the young
