Used to + Infinitive (basic form of the verb) means that something happened regularly or went on for a long time in the past , but no longer happens.

The negative form of used to is didn't used to

- We can use used to and would to talk about repeated actions and events from the past. However we cannot use would to talk about repeated states.
