What is the difference between "I AM used to doing" and "I WAS used to doing"?

I wonder is that correct:

I was used to doing = I used to do = means in the past and you are no longer doing

and

I am used to doing = I get/got used to doing = means you are still used or accustomed to doing it

?

Examples:

  • He used to cycle to his work.
  • I was used to typing fast.
  • I am used to drinking coffee every morning.
  • She got used to the cold climate.
  • I'm gradually getting used to it.
  • Is there a question hidden in there? Please edit to clarify what you are confused about. – Jeff Morrow Jan 10 '18 at 17:26

  • There is a difference between "I used to do something" and "I am used to doing something". These mean different things. – Andrew Jan 10 '18 at 17:38

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because your examples mix together two different meanings of "used to", which is different from the title of your question. So I'm not clear exactly what you are asking. – Andrew Jan 15 '18 at 21:36

some of your sentences are grammatically wrong.

He had a habit of cycling to work earlier.

Is better than

He used to cycle to his work.


I am used to drinking coffee every morning.

sounds like you are used by someone to drink coffee every morning, Although then the sentence would be -

I am used to drink coffee every morning.

The correct sentence -

I drink coffee every morning

or

I have a habit of drinking coffee every morning.


She got used to the cold climate.& I'm gradually getting used to it.

Look correct to me.
