    I want to (be) back my 18.

    ''I want to back my 18''
    ''I want to be back my 18''

    I know ''to'' follow a verb, in this case both of them seem correct to me. If I am wrong please share your idea.

    Welcome to the forum, furrkanoz.

    Your question is not clear. Please ask it in different words. Don't forget to end every sentence with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    What do you think "my 18" means?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
