I know there's a lot of us chiming in here, but I felt I could add to the conversation. Google stores your last 100 passwords used. As such, if you really, really, really want to go back to your old password, you can change your password ***** times...afterward, you will be allowed to change it back to what it formerly was. As an alternative -- and if it would be acceptable to you to use a password ***** is not *quite* the same -- you could use your old password, but change or add a single character. For instance, "password" could become "Password" or "[email protected]:Regretfully, you will otherwise be unable to use your old password. :-(
