You were once a teenager and then it was allowed to do all the crazy things because you felt it was part of growing up but as you are almost hitting the big 3-0, time is certainly ripe to leave those habits behind.
As much as you may not want to hear the truth, no one really likes an overgrown baby, it reduces the tendency for people to take you or the word you say with a pinch of salt, and that’s really not a good thing for your image.
Alex Alexander of YourTango lists 30 things to desperately drop before you turn 30:
2• Sleeping on a makeshift bed.
3• Drinking until you’re blackout drunk.
4• Wearing dresses that don’t properly cover your butt.
5• Staying in hostels, especially in dorm rooms with strangers.
6• Obsessing over your high school sweetheart.
7• Obsessing over your college sweetheart.
8• Using the “f-bomb” every 5 seconds.
9• Wearing your makeup to bed.
10• Staying out all night.
11• Making out with 21-year-olds at parties.
12• Living with your parents.
13• Dating someone who lives with their parents. (Although some people make a convincing case for the opposite.)
14• Borrowing money from your parents to take someone on a date.
15• Having multiple one-night stands.
16• Making out with your BFFs at bars for attention.
17• Making out with your boyfriend at bars for attention.
18• Carrying a torch for anyone you haven’t seen in the last five years.

Self development makes the difference.
