Have you ever wanted to leave IT/got bored of programming?
(I've been coding for 10+ years and I did, but I'm glad that I haven't quit)

What I like to do is continue adding other high level income skills and figuring out how they work well with programming.

e.g. - SEO & programming atm

I've never wanted to stop coding, but I've most definitely been burnt out and needed a break.

Have you ever taken long(ish) breaks?

Once I started doing development as a job I haven't really taken any breaks from doing that sort of work.

I write code as a hobby too and there have been times where I've gone a month or so without coding outside of work.
