    used to

    Greetings!
    I'm learning English Grammar in Use and there are o lot of examples of using "used to". I have no any problem using it but have difficulty in understanding this:

    I am used to living alone.

    Does this mean that I still live alone or this means that I've been living alone for some time (from the past until now, recently finished action)?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    It means that I live alone and I am accustomed to that situation.
    'I used to live alone.' Means that in the past I lived alone but now I don't.
