Life can be boiled down to a long, sometimes interesting, series of choices. What we decide to eat for breakfast, wear for the day, listen to on the way to work, and who we talk to first thing can dictate everything else that happens. Sometimes, the effects are minimal, almost invisible to our day. Other times, the effects ripple out, leaving a trace in your mind you'll follow back to this newly established idea you'll never forget: Don't do this again. Ever.
These are those stories.

Go skiing without knowing how to stop
I think you are underestimating yourself. You know how to stop. Now stopping safely.......
Who Would Ever Want To-Oh, You. You Would.
Probably sky diving. It was a lot of fun and an extreme experience for sure but once was enough!
Same here. It was incredible and looking back I'm glad I can say I did it. But mistakes were made, namely not being able to get a breath in throughout the freefall (some sort of weird reflex) meaning my heart was racing but I wasn't getting any air in. Almost blacked out
I Mean, Yeah. That Checks Out.
Chop a habenero pepper and then scratch my junk
On the plus side, Hell has no horrors for you now.
Ease Back Out
Cold turkey antidepressants!
I didn't cold turkey all the way but when I cut it down to half my original dose I said f-ck it and went all the way down. I could hear my eyes moving in my head for a week, couldn't stand for more than 2 minutes straight, and I had to change shirts every two hours because I sweat so much. Discontinuation syndrome is no f-cking joke, literally the worst week of my life
It's Alive. IT'S ALIVE.
Ride on an elephant. That sh-t is just wrong.
Dunno why I thought I should do it.
I totally get this. I rode an elephant just once, at the state fair many moons ago. As soon as i got on i could sense the vast intelligence and vast grief of this enslaved being.
Seems Like It Was Doing Its JobGiphy
Jump a fence with spikes.
It was not worth it, pulling my leg of the fence and getting stitches.
That Is Certainly A Comparison
I used it once when I was 19, and coming down from it was the worst thing I've ever felt. And I've been hit by a car, I've almost died twice... none of it compared.
Treat Others The Way You Want
Be mean to people for the fun of it.
I was a very bad kid and now I regret every second of it.
Golden rule is the way to go.
Keep That Confidence
Tell myself that I'm not good enough for someone
Some People Will Never Be Fixed
Attempt to fix a toxic relationship
Too relatable. Lesson f-cking learned.
Till Death, Or Irreconcilable Differences, Do Us Part
Note: I'm married now, second wife. If something were to happen, there wouldn't be a third.
Currently separated with my first husband and I can't imagine wanting to get married again.. Must have been someone special for you to do it a second time.
You Can Get It!Giphy
Stay in a relationship just to be validated that someone wants me.
I want me. I rock on my own, guys :)
Yes you do :)
I can relate, not sure if that helps. Rode the ship to the bottom because I didn't think anyone else would.
