So how long did it take you to realize recipes were bullshit?

When I first started cooking, I tried to follow a recipe as if it were a scientific experiment, and tried to make all measurements with absolute precision. Eventually, I realized that recipes are simply guides, and seasoning and cooking times are all matters of personal taste. Now I hardly ever measure anything with anything other than my eye, and by taste, and I've had much better results, and find it much more enjoyable to cook.
When did you finally quit worrying and just did what the fuck you want while always getting good results?
