I want to use the word 'adapt' in the meaning of 'get used to'
Should I say, for instance, "I have become adapted to my misery" or "I adapted (to) my misery?" I guess that only the first option is correct but I want to make sure.
I suppose "adapt" is a word describing something "global" which people are forced to follow, e.g., to adapt to a new regime, new economic situation, some political changes in a country, etc. Also we can adapt something, for example, an empty room so that it will be used as a library or an office. In my view, "get used to" is better and "come to terms with" also works.
I have adapted to living in a smaller house.
I have adapted to spending less money.
I have adapted to all the noise.
I have adapted to the loss of my pet.
I have adapted to the rigid diet.
I have adapted to getting less sleep.
I have adapted to the warm temperatures.
The can all be changed to:
I have gotten used to.....
I have gotten used to living in a smaller house.
