Has anyone taken the Nazarite vow?

Yes it is supposed to be binding, but I think that's why I havn't taken any vows haha because I'm aware that my mind could change at any time, so it's kind of like with tattoos, I dont tthink that I could get one unless I thought about a certain one for years.
Same thing with this vow, I don't think It's something that I am willing to take at the moment. I don't knowif I am called to do it. I know that I want to be pure in a world that grows increasingly less pure, but I'm not too sure if maybe the world is so unpure because of all the vows through out history? I dont know maybe I'm not making any sense hahaha
It's interested me for a while though, but I wouldn't take the vow without seriously considering it and thinking about it for a long time.

isnt a vow suposed to be binding but its only as binding as your commitment to it
look at preists that take a vow of celibacy then rape alterboys
a vows a personal choice and its yoiur choice to honour and commit to it
many people vow revenge on those who wrong them and these vows eat them up inside
these vows are made hastily and oiut of anger totake a vow to be more pure more holy whatever takes more contempo]lation you dont do it on a whim or out of an emotional responce but because you feel a calling
