Do you use the idiom of "crossing the Rubicon" to mean passing a point of no return?

Don't recall the last time I used it if ever. Why did the chicken cross the rubicon?

It sounds better than "crossing the Rio Grande".

Rubicon is just a jeep to me.

I don't believe I have ever used that idiom. To do so would be crossing the Rubicon of idiom usage.

I know that's what the term means, but I don't think I've ever used it.

I'd understand it if I heard it, but I can't imagine a situation where I would use it myself.

Not that necessarily, but more akin to talking a big step...making a bold move, which may or may not be a point of no return.

I understand the phrase to mean that, and I'm sure I've used it once or twice. But that's not really my go-to phrase of choice.
