Hooked on autopilot

Ever since the new update I have been hooked on autopilot. When I see the steering wheel icon pop-up I engage it - even if I know I only have to drive 500 meters before an intersection or something like that, and I know I have to turn it off. In school zones I engage it, with people driving 30 km/h in front of me. Really, there is hardly a situation where I don't use it. I am already so hooked on it that I cannot imagine driving without it. Am I the only one or are more people like me?
I only used TACC up until about 2017.42. I didn't want the police to think I was drunk. After that I've used it for about 80% of my highway miles, but very infrequently in the city. It's usually easier to actually drive the car than to figure out ways AP2 might screw up in city traffic.
