    Best thing for me is the reft of quality friends I have accumulated followed by a hobby which I can afford to go (fairly) first class in. Knowledge is key.
    Shaves are sweet as well!

    It taught me to think of my life differently, to stop treating my life like a "task list", always having the feeling wherever I was that I had to be somewhere else, moving on to the next "task".

    Now, I don't think of things much that way anymore, learning to shave with a straight taught me to treat things and my day more like an experience, to slow down and live my life...to stop and smell the wonderful scent from a fine shaving soap.....

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Before I found the path to wet shaving 7 years ago; I lived a life of fast women, fast cars, drugs and crime.

    Since I have been wet shaving, I have no money left for the prior life.

    An addiction is hard to break.

    2. I now appreciate and am more knowledgeable of the history of various shaving products and techniques in all forms, e.g. DE, SE and SR;
    3. I find my morning shave is similar to morning meditation. It centers my thinking and helps to calm my mind before I enter the world;
    4. I could never have imagined how relaxing it is to go through the ritual of a morning prep and shave;
    5. Being part of a wet-shaving online community has been a bonus.

    How about you? How has wet shaving changed your life?
    #1 Hasn't changed a bit.

    #2 I agree. And I have learned about box making and metallurgy just to name a couple of tangents that this has led me off to...

    #3 No.

    #4 No.

    #5 Agree. My friends especially here that I have made!

    I sit out in front of Duncan Donuts for hours, where I hone & give shaving advice for free donuts & coffee.
