Redditors Share the One Thing They'll Never Do Again: 'It Was Scary'

The internet recently got real about what they'll "never do again," and people didn't hold back with their life experiences. From zip-lining and bungee jumping to smoking cigarettes and using LSD, these answers were all over the place.

The Reddit post, which has more than 28,000 upvotes, was shared to the subreddit "Ask Reddit" on February 3 by u/itchy_18. It's titled, "Anti-bucket list. What's something you'll never do again?"

Situations like these can cause stress, and according to the Mayo Clinic, positive thinking can help with managing stress, and it can even improve health in individuals. The possible benefits of positive thinking include: "Increased life span, lower rates of depression, lower levels of distress and pain, greater resistance to illnesses, better psychological and physical well-being, better cardiovascular health and reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease and stroke, reduced risk of death from cancer, reduced risk of death from respiratory conditions, reduced risk of death from infections, better coping skills during hardships and times of stress."

There were 13,000 comments and a lot of uncomfortable situations recounted by Redditors. Some people made light of situations, while others gave out life advice about things that happened to them.

One Redditor's comment received over 11,000 upvotes, and they revealed they "nearly drowned" in a situation they'll never do again. "Swim in the sea at night whilst drunk," they said.

Some people had bad experiences going places, such as Disney World on Christmas Day, which turned out not to be the best time. "Shoulder-to-shoulder people, insane lines, and nothing special I couldn't see earlier in the month," the Redditor said.

Another recalled an experience where they camped by a river that was flooded by melting snow "from an area that was six hours away and having to be heli-rescued. It was f**king embarrassing."

A Redditor recalled a risky venture bungee jumping. Once their feet left the edge, all they could think about was, "'well that was stupid.' It was exciting and probably safe enough...but it was enough for me to know I will never willingly do that again."

One person revealed they won't smoke again. They did it for 14 years, and they feel "so much better having quit," adding, "Been about 10 years since, and the amount of money saved and the smell and the cough."

Some brought up unique situations they'll never participate in again, including "food challenges." One person revealed they "tried eating a 1kg steak once and almost threw up. That was my first and last food challenge."

Some people won't be giving birth again. "I love my son so much, but hard pass on pushing another human out of me again," a Redditor explained.

A Redditor had harsh words for their family after they moved to be closer to them. "I saw them just as much when I lived across the country," they revealed. "They put in zero effort. So I moved back. They can come visit me, or they can burn in hell."

Another said they won't be doing LSD again after they had a bad experience and have no recollection of what occurred as they blacked out and their boyfriend described them "as the most depressed he ever saw me. I was crying on the floor, kept repeating: 'What have I done?' And puked all over myself. Never again."

A Redditor revealed zip-lining is the one activity they won't be completing ever again, and it was "scary being on the platforms high up." They also added: "And the zip-lining itself was boring. Kind of weird being on ropes and pullies. And then I got stuck in the middle of the zip line above the rainforest floor and the worker had to pull his way down the line and rescue me."
