    Default Decided

    Are these correct? If not, why? What do they mean?
    1. I decided I didn't want this anymore. (Past?)
    2. I decided I don't want this anymore. (You decided in the past and now you don't want it and it is still true?)

    Thanks.

    They're correct, but in the first, if both are in the past, you might want to use 'that' or 'it'.
