I recently resigned from my universities local fraternity and it feels kind of weird. I didn't agree with how everything was being run so I decided to quit before our initiation ceremony on the 3rd. I'm still trying to decide if what I did was the right thing. I no longer have to pay $77 every month for dues and will have more free time to invest into my studies, but at the same time I'm kind of leaving behind a group of some really cool guys. So I'm asking you. Have you ever quit something before and didn't know if it was the right thing?

I quit University because I didn't enjoy school. That could have gone poorly.

Several jobs and didn't regret any of them.

I quit smoking after 6 years. Used to smoke at least a pack a day. I just woke up one morning and after spitting some disgusting awfulness up I started to ask myself some very important questions. Why am I smoking and am I really to weak to quit? Stopped cold turkey and haven't touched a cigarette in 4 years.

Nobody likes a quitter. See things through until the end. That's my motto. *puff*

@AcidBrandon18: That was actually twelve years ago. I did get a job, but it was just in time for the dot com bubble burst. So that job quit me and I was eventually laid off. And short version, totally white collar employed.

I quit trying to become something. Because I don't know what something is.

That was a load of my shoulders.

Me and a few of my scientific chums were working on something called the Manhatten Project. I thought it was for making pastrami sandwiches but it turned out to be more sinister. Almost 3 times more sinister so I quitteded it.

I have quit so many goddamn things. And I dont regret it.

As a person, you're not obligated to be a part of anything you don't want to be. It's a freedom, and it's fucking beautiful. Enjoy it.

Yes, a job at a Subway. I was only going to get three hours that week and despite really needing cash I decided my time was better spent than working with a bunch of people who didn't like me and I didn't like for almost nothing, so I just up and said "not doing this anymore". I had no clue where my next paycheck would come from; cue me asking around and landing a student worker job in my college's IT department, which to this day I have kept except for this past summer, when I didn't work there. It was quite a risk on my part because had I not found that student worker job I would have had to quit college and I wouldn't have been able to afford to put gas in my car.

People gave me a hard time for singing and cross-dressing in the cathedral choir, so I quit.

No one told me that university choirs would be mostly composed of hot nerdy chicks.

I've never quit anything. I'm fluent in Japanese, I've mastered both Guitar and Piano, and I've got my pilot's license.

That's right. I'm fluent in Japanese and Spanish; I have the top grades in all of my science classes; I'm a 5th dan in Judo and a 5th degree black belt in Taekwon-Do; I'm a master artist, programmer, creative writer and game designer and I'm not a depressed person.

...Only time I quit something wondering if it was the right thing was when I abandoned the one real friendship I've ever had years ago. Other than that, I'm currently contemplating whether quitting school would benefit me more than hurt me. That's about it.

I have quit, not much off the top of my head, a job once, I know I have stopped doing things, but I can't think of something big enough to really mention. I guess two years ago I quit making excuses for not working out and started going to the gym regularly, I have not stopped that yet. I don't think that really qualifies as quitting though...

I guess I quit the Rugby team in highschool, I didn't like the coach much, and I was sick of getting hurt.

I was in the same boat as you. Just didn't agree with how a Business Fraternity was basically just a normal one with the same amount of underage drinking involved. Stupid college. Oh well, that's years behind me now.

I quit being friends with this buddy of mine who I'd known since I was 12 years old. He had depersonalization disorder and either it made him, or he used it as an exucse to, act like an uncaring asshole all the time. He was also a total alcoholic and would get liquor by any means necessary and get drunk every day that he could, which only exacerbated the asshole issue, and made him super belligerent as well. As someone who doesn't drink I don't have a lot of tolerance for that. So I told him he had a problem, he didn't listen to me, I told him I didn't want to hang out with him when he was drunk, and he did it anyways. I don't really regret my decision, but sometimes I feel bad thinking about how I basically abandoned a buddy because he was really sick, despite a 9 year friendship, where I helped him get through some really tough times.

@Yadilie: Yeah. I was apart of Alpha Sigma Phi and there was still underage drinking and the like. They get mad when you call them a frat since a frat is a social drinking club. Bunch of hipocrits.

I quit my first job 2 hours in..

It was Trolley pushing/ collecting.. First of all the guy that hired me was 1 hour late, then goes off at me for not stocking up the supermarket with trolley's, then at some point just pretty much collected every trolley he could and gave them to me to push.. Also he was an immense jerk!.. So fuck that I was out!

I quit the same job twice. After going back. Mostly because of moving away & then coming back.

I've just applied for a vacancy to go back there, although at least this time it's in a slightly different role. Entry level server support. Because fuck, it would that when I inevitably go move away again I'll have something decent on my CV at least.
