You need help.
And I empathise with the fact you were physically abused yourself and I really hope you get that that's not normal. Its not okay. Nobody ever had the right to hurt you either. I am sorry. Please get help for your childrens sake.

I havent read the thread, im just going to answer the OP...
I have no idea where a 'line' would be... I think i was about 5yo last time i was smacked, and it would only ever be the once, i dont resent my parents for it at all. 'smacking was then used as a threat until i was 7 or 8 maybe? But never actually got smacked, the threat was enough.
As for DD, well i havent smacked her yet, and she is almost 5yo. I never imagined myself smacking after about 5yo regardless, i guess because i never was. So i dont see myself ever needing to smack now, she is old enough to reason with, and has been for a while now, so it has never been needed.
But, never say never, i may end up with a strong willed child next time who wont listen to reason. I like to think i have a stronger will and would always discipline with other means, but you never really know until your put in that position. And in the case i ever felt smacking was needed, well i guess over about 6yo would be too old for me. And under 2yo is definitely too young. Toddlers dont know what they are doing wrong in the first place!

I have smacked, out of severe sleep deprived frustration ...
I regret every time I did it ... I can't take it back ...
It was also the only thing I knew how to do, I had been smacked, and I didn't know how to parent differently ...
I've learnt different coping mechanisms and will never smack again.

The interesting line is:
The notion of a permissible line of corporal punishment was thus best avoided.
