25. Some will deeply regret it, I'm sure. Others won't.
Many of us have stuff from our younger years we regret. As for my friend, she knew what she was getting into. I know that because we talked about it and she was very clear that she understood exactly what her choice meant. How does she feel about it today? I wish I knew, but we lost touch over the years, so I can't ask her. She got her PhD, though, which she could never have paid for, given her impoverished state at the time. The last thing I heard from her was that she had an assistant professorship at a small college in Ohio.

Not everyone has his or her life destroyed by choices that are poor ones. Some do, but not everyone. As I said, I think it's a terribly risky thing to do, and has the potential to be destructive or even deadly. Sadly some will take that chance without a lot of thought.
