"I stop" is 一般现在时. It means you do the action on a habitual, regular basis.

Isn't "I've quit/stopped" == "J'avais arrêté"? In any case, I just went ahead and added another translation. The meaning is 差不多, it's just the tense that bothers me.

(same here..."I've quit" implies you already did for a while now [@feudrenais: welcome back btw^^])

hmmm in some conxtext the french sentence can work for both.

Btw, "quit" (at least to me) might have the underlying meaning that you got fed up with talking French to the guy and so stopped using it (sort of like "I've given up on speaking French with you because your French sucks", or something of the sort...)

But this might just be my interpretation.
