I have a friend that has done it all. Hard stuff, Cigarettes, Vaping, and dip.

He said the hardest by far was quitting the Vape. Coke, acid, weed, etc....... Vaping still gives him the worst trauma. No idea how strong the stuff was that he was on.
I hadn't heard that.

lol

I mean....Acid is not addictive.

Neither is weed.

Cocaine....I wont touch cocaine anymore. The come down on a hard bender of cocaine feels like literal death. Not kidding. after my last jam session, I officailly 100% said screw this never again.

Not vaping feels like anxiety. Big difference.

But, to each their own.

He handles anxiety VERY poorly. So that makes sense.

I've never put any of it in my body. Never put a cigarette to my lips and have only ever consumed alcohol. I have literally no clue about that stuff.

Quite the rally today. Good thing it wasn't overshadowed by anything. I was led my META, BABA, TROW, F, and GOOG, all over 4%. It seems like we get one or two of these between monthly economic reports. Everybody thinks we might be coming out of the woods and then we get some bad news that erases the gains.

@dscher What doth the charts sayeth?
Not good. Classic bear market rally face rippers. IMO. Internally, and volatility wise, we aren't getting the action needed according to my analysis.

Maybe, more specifically, do you have anything you're curious about? I don't mind providing charts if need be.

On a similar note, I haven't heard anything about the fed auctions. I wonder what type of discount they are having to sell at? What happens to those realized losses? I guess it's all just funny money any way. It's not like they had the $5 trillion in the first place.

Banks take the fall. Then the "bailouts" begin again. Whatever that means, nowadays. Like you said... All funny money. Crazy that our world has always been like a real version of monopoly. All a big damn house of cards created by the creators of the perpetual debt system. Someone inevitably seizes all the assets and it's game over. I'm ready to wipe the board.

The crash-like conditions remain..

Keep your head on a swivel. Still bound to get pretty wonky out there.

Was tempted, decided I would keep waiting. glad I did. Things are still unstable. I might play spectator until the fed is done raising rates

I still think the pendulum has further to swing. It swung so far out into excess and speculation, there needs to/should be an equal swing back into pessimism particularly without the fed backstopping the economy and the market. I don't think we are there yet. I haven't seen enough pain unfortunately.
