do you have to wear retainers for the rest of your life after braces

I got told that I have to wear retainers for the rest of my life and if I don't then my teeth would move back, is it true?
true, i am a victim of this when i lost my retainers and had to survive without a week and now my teeth will never be as straight as they used to be

oh noo
Your teeth move that fast!
that's scary, because mine are being removed and I'm not really responsible
the thing that scares me the most is that you have to do it for your whole life!!

mine broke near the corner of my front tooth, but i don’t think it breaks easily?? the metal is quite thin but depending on the brand possibly it won’t break
