I suggest you ...

(Adaptive text) [first time]...[only]

These two statements would work exactly the same way:

say "The screen door squeaks loudly as when you open it.[first time] Well,
you'll get used to it eventually.[only]"
say "The screen door squeaks loudly as when you open it.[one of] Well,
you'll get used to it eventually.[or][stopping]"

but the first one reads much more intuitively. And perhaps also the opposite:

say "You pull the lever[subsequent times] again[only]."

which would be equivalent to:

say "You pull the lever[one of][or] again[stopping]."
