I'm not sure what you mean by "run continuously".

This code just attaches a click handler to the button element. But I see the handler will also set another handler when it runs. I'm not sure, but I suspect that the original handler would remain active and the second one attached with a new listener. If so, this might cause unexpected behavior. You might consider rewriting the outer handler to unbind itself using .off, or perhaps attach it originally using .one to avoid this.

I see your inner handler uses toggle so it might also be possible to install it (or a slightly modified version) as the only handler and avoid the use of the outer one completely.
