Many of those who have booted working life early and are living in retirement now would say that 5% withdrawl (Nest Egg = 20x Expenses) is high. Many would recommend having a 4% withdrawl rate (NestEgg = 25x annual expenses) to ensure that you don't outlive your money.
Check out the Retire Early Home Page for more detail on safe withdrawl rates:
