I'd tweak the meaning to be something like "I did X regularly in
the past and I no longer do it regularly". E.g. "I used to drink
a lot of cranberry juice"[*] connotes that I drank it regularly,
but no longer drink it regularly, even though I might still drink
it occasionally. But on the whole, I side with John far more
than I side with RR on the issue.
[*] seriously, in college I managed to put away over a gal/day.
Ah, to be young again and have an unlimited cafeteria food-plan.
