DONE with corporate approx 47, tansitional for past 4'ish years. Not really watching the age, never did, likely never will except when my better half reminds me of deadlines (e.g. sign up for pension, Medicare, SS)
I like to calculate the average age of the people here FIREed. It's a long dream of my but never have enough guts or money to pull the trigger.
Yes, I am retired.
Retired at age 54 when my three kids were then ages 7, 11, and 17. Took about 20 minutes to adjust. Never looked back and never regretted my decision to leave at that age. I am now 75, and the last 21 years of freedom I look back on with fondness and many good memories.
