14 People Talk About What They Did Once and Never Again

I’m wracking my brain over here and I can’t think of something that I’ve done once and vowed to never do again…

But, then again, there are a lot of things I’ve never done, so I guess you never know…

What did you do once and never again?

Here’s what people on AskReddit had to say.

1. Terrible.

“Tried to intervene during a street fight.

Got shot for my troubles.”

2. Won’t do that again.

“Got d**nk once with friends under the Ambassador Bridge drinking 120 proof rum from duty free shop.

Puked my guts out. Can’t stand the smell of rum since and it’s been 53 years!”

3. Thief.

“I stole a tester eyeliner from the makeup section at a store when I was 17.

The security guy took me aside in a small room and “questioned” me, asked for my information, and to scare me, he said this would always be in my record and companies won’t want to hire me anymore and I burst into tears and had a panic attack. He said he’ll let me off if I pay double the price of the eyeliner, so I did and he let me go.

Now, I don’t know how much of what he told me was real and if the resolve was legitimate, but if he tried to just scare me into not becoming a serial swiper, it worked.”

4. Not pleasant.

“Used “Nair” to remove all the hair from my junk with little effort.

Don’t. Ever. Do. This.”

5. Mystery drug.

“A drug that to this day I don’t know what it was.

Made my knuckles and face go numb and I went into a fit of rage. Snorted it and it was sort of a translucent white and my homie had it in a gum wrapper.

I wouldn’t have done it but I was already high on other pills so I didn’t think twice to really find out what it was.”

6. I’d never do this.

“Spelunking / cave exploring.

For starters, it begins and ends with going through a million bats. And the journey in between is just too dangerous, in the last place in the world you’d want to get hurt.

And super tight squeezes are freaky.”

7. On the river.

“Went tubing down a alligator and snake infested South Carolina river with my southern friends on a Fourth of July years ago.

The adventure was only supposed to last 3 hours tops… It lasted 7 hours because the river current was slow that day. I got the sunburn of my life that lasted until November.

We also lost a raft, and encountered 2 copperhead snakes and seen multiple alligators along the edges of the river. My Yankee a** will NEVER do that again. The Southern folks can keep it.”

8. Crazy.

“I rode a bull.

First hop of the bulls front legs out the chute and I was off…flipping and seeing sky/dirt/sky/dirt and then belly flopped.

That hop felt like a train wreck. Bull riders are insane.”

9. No fun.

“Get d**nk till I blacked out.

Having people fill in the gaps in your memory is terrifying especially not knowing how you got home.

I don’t drink anymore.”

10. Two of a kind.

“Two things, very similar; the strip club and the casino.

Both places made me feel like a complete moron, pi**ing my money away.”

11. Won’t do that again.

“Running on a wet surface.

I learned my lesson after getting a few staples to the head.”

12. Big mistake.

“Cheat on a partner.

I learned the hard way as a dumb teen that this is one of worst things you can do and only ever leads to everyone involved getting seriously hurt.”

13. Nope.

“The drug Salvia. Turns out, hallucinations just aren’t right for me.

Watching the universe get peeled apart is something I’m not interested in seeing again.”

14. Quite an accomplishment.

“Bicycled from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

56 Days on the road (including rest days). My body barely handled the strain then; now, something would break down and probably just stay broken. I know there are people who do it multiple times and take different routes and such, but once was enough for me.

The physical part notwithstanding, now I’m an old guy and have a career and responsibilities from which I can’t take a 50 day hiatus without unacceptable consequences.”

Now it’s your turn.

Tell us what you did once and never again.

Thanks a lot!
