    35 years. Give or take maybe 2 or 3 years I took off. A couple of those years were coaching but I was still on the ice so I was still skating.

    17 years for me in total. Although not a huge amount of training was done for about 10 of those.

    12, then off 17 years, then on just a few months, then off 2 years, then on a year, then off 4 years, now it's been a year since I came back.

    The 17 years was due to health issues, family stuff, school and work. The few months back ended because I broke my leg, after I had gotten a brand new pair of skates. The 2 years off was to heal from the breaks. The year on I developed a severe phobia and quit to wait for it to go away. The 4 years was that waiting, which seems to have paid off because I am still skating and not terrified. I'm getting ready to buy brand new skates and am worried that right after I get them I'll get cursed and something bad will happen to make me be unable to use them. I hope nothing comes up to make me have to stop again.
