Without driving? Probably for a few weeks, while I was in a hospital in 2018. Otherwise, even while I lived in Zagreb, I'd come to my parents' place and drive one of my dad's cars once in two weeks on average. Without owning my own car? 25.5 years, in other words, my whole life.How long have you gone without driving?

I haven't driven in 4 months and I haven't owned a car or motorcycle for 6 months. Feels weird.
It all comes down to needs. I don't commute by car when there are more convenient options available. For example, when I lived in Zagreb, the public transport was so much cheaper and mitigated so many problems that the facts that it's slightly slower and not the most convenient solution every time didn't even matter. Also, it's not like I enjoy commuting by car, so in other words, it's not like I could care.
Similarly, I don't own a car because my dad owns two running cars, so I don't see the need to save money and purchase one myself. If the things were different, e.g. if I didn't live with my parents and if I needed to commute, I'd get a car, but that's not the case right now.
That being said, I do wish I could afford a fun 'weekend' car to go to trips and drive out of sheer pleasure during the weekends, but that's unlikely to happen in the next two years or so. Which is kind of irritating to think of, but that's a whole topic for itself.
