Get it off your chest.

What bad decisions have you made and or continue to repeat? We're all in this together.
>>
For me its addiction to day trading and swing trading. Its not so much a problem that I do it, its that I am impatient. I can make 1-5% gains a day but throw it away when the market goes sideways for too long.
>>
I bought 1500 ICX at $1.50 then panic sold at $1.20, then it proceeded to moon to over $10
>>
I sold BTC at 14k and then 15k, then rebought at 17k and 16k.

I sold 520 ONT at $1.20, it mooned to $4, but at least I didn't sell the 85 ONT.

Looked at TRX at 20 sats, wanted to buy, but deicded later on to get it, it mooned to 30 sats, 60 sats then I waited for it to come down, it prceeded to moon to 2000 sats the following weeks

I passed up on XRB when it was shilled in november at around $0.10 since it was on a shit exchange.

I was 300% up on my shorts on Bitmex, didn't close and ended up closing at a -10% loss.

I didn't participate in the ArcBlock ICO due to the FUD and now its x3 up from its ICO.

I panic sold my credits for 10% gains because of the FUD and it mooned x4 thereafter

Due to all my big mistakes I have made, I've become Mr Iron Man and have been making consistant gains and ATHs in my sats.
>>
Trading on small time fram instead of reading the big picture : bought 0.7 btc in august, could have made 5,6 trades max to make a decent x10.
Instead I overreact and now I'm at 0.8btc
Not sold btc ath because I felt for the "it's a long term hold buddy"
I think everybody make mistakes in the beginning, good traders learn from them...
>>
i reinvest in powh3d
unironically
>>
When I tether up, btc goes up. When I buy in it starts to dump in the next 5 mins.

What do? How do I break this cycle?
>>
>>8928164
The matrix is reading my moves and fucking with me
>>
I bought chainlink. Why did biz recommend this steaming pile of shit?
>>
>>8928146
Why? The token value keeps tanking, you are just buying something that loses value. I was lucky enough to get out at the top, invest in powm, get out right as it started crashing, then moved everything out.

>>8928164
hodl, I do the same thing, as long as you made a profit then you technically won
>>
I still jerk off too much which affects my day to day productivity.
>>
>>8928205
second token airdrop, xmr/btc exchange
honestly i'm just retarded autist
>>
Biggest mistake I made was not thinking about a plan of what to do with the money once I hit my goal. I have plans in place now, but damn would it have been great to invest 10k chunks every week when we where heading up November through January. I feel like a fucking idiot thinking back. Now I have set some targets to take profit and reinvest it some passive offline and online income vehicles. So when that bear cycle returns I should be fine again.

> Nodes
> Mining
> Staking
> Renting out apartment
> Investing in some local businesses (unironically a prostitutes business)

All I need is my shitcoin to go x2-4 to get shit started.

Sold REQ @ 28c for x4
2 weeks later it hits $1

Daytraded LINK to end up 30% down from my stack in its prime

Bought BCH in March, when I thought it couldn't get any lower

Held alts in Noveember BTC fork run

Sold TRX 4 hours before its notorious pump after NY

As for gfs...

Been pushing ded relationship for half a year just to get cheated on. Most likely was cheated on long before that, but it took me this long to realise there was no more romance

I am a high functioning alcoholic (27 years old). I don't drink every day, but when I do I can go through alcohol like its water. I am able to drink a 1.5L bottle of wine in a single night. It doesn't even get me that hammered, I just start out when I get home from work and can go for hours until the booze is all gone. I am used to drinking while relaxing ie. gaming or just browsing the Internet.

I try to stop every once in a while, but half the time I don't know what to do with myself when I get home from work at night. The boredom gets to me, so I drink and then sometimes things will feel entertaining again, at least for a little while.

I have no real responsibilities outside of showing up to work and keeping my apartment clean. Also, I make craptons of money at my job ($103k/year), so no one can really tell me I need to clean up my life or anything, I am obviously doing just fine on my own. But it is a bad habit that I am afraid is one day going to kill me.
>>
>>8928408
1.5L of wine isn't that much bruh. I was going through a liter of rum a day in my 20s and I made it out alive with minimal damage and I have mental health issues aside from that which were making the drinking much worse
>>
Seems like this is mostly crypto related, but this will be job related.

I blew a negotiation for full time WFH. Boss knew I was burnt out but I could have put on a straight face. Now I'll be out of a job in a month without something lined up (been applying for the last 3 months and had a couple of phone interviews). Probably bruised his ego in the process, but I didn't think he'd deny me a comfy exit

>I am able to drink a 1.5L bottle of wine in a single night
I know a guy that goes through 2 vodka bottles daily, I have no idea where he gets money for it.
>>
>>8928456

Were you able to function well on that much booze? Were you a functioning alcohol or a fucked-up by noon sort of alcoholic?

>>8928477

This actually makes me feel slightly better about my drinking habits. Thanks for helping me not feel like a degenerate anons. Who says 4chan doesn't help out sometimes?

i bought Lunyr at 26$ when I could have bought wau coin at .12$ Now lunyr is around !)$ and WAU Coin almost doubled. Now I need to have 4x on lunyr just to get the same amount of WAU and thats only if wau doesnt keep going higher. UGGH i should have just listened and got wau

Phenibut addict for 3 years. It changed my life for the better. Finally motivated enough to do things. Learned forex, started trading with money put aside. Now I'm trading fulltime and I cannot withdraw from it as it causes severe brainfog and other far more nasty withdrawal symptoms. I'm invincible as long as I take it. Sleeping like a god, always in good mood, social, motivated. FUCK. i don't even know if it could fuck up my brain chemistry permanently. Need to taper it down but brainfog sets in which makes my daily trading hell. Well... 1 more year and I need to come up with something to taper it down safely

>>8928408
I'm also an alcoholic but a binge drinker and most weekends end up drinking 2.5 bottles of 75cl white wine of around 12% strength for either 2 or 3 nights in a row. my hangovers are getting worse as i'm getting older too and it ruins weightlifting and overall sucks but i cannot stop. 3-4 nights max and i need to get drunk and even though it's not every day i really want to stop. one thing i've found helps physical cravings is kratom, but eventually i get hooked on that quickly too and end up dosing high which lowers my inhibitions and i end up just getting combo'd on lots of kratom and wine. usually very little memory of those nights although they can be fun but the hangovers are terrible.

sold my OMG for Vechain

I didn't have a pattern for drinking. I would drink some during work on my break and drink a lot after work usually, and sometimes drink before work too. Time of day didn't matter. Sometimes I would stay up for 2 days drinking the whole time on my days off and end up killing a few liters and be sick for days afterwards. Other times I would go a day without drinking.

I was always able to go to work and do my job, but when I was really drunk my mental health issues would magnify and I would cause a lot of problems for myself. I would just do whatever I wanted and consequences be damned.
>>
>>8928577
I honestly tried Kratom but could not feel any noticeable effects from it. Maybe I wasn't trying a high enough dose, but it felt like a placebo for me. Also, that stuff definitely tastes awful in powder form, and I can usually handle very bitter tastes (black coffee, MDMA, etc.).

Early last year I started by buying Ethereum. Held for a while and then started daytrading/swingtrading way too fucking much. Even though I was doing alright for the most part, I think I could've made the same amount, if not more, by just holding the Ethereum I bought at the start and not do anything else for the entire year. Same thing goes for most of the other currencies I bought and then sold soon afterwards.
>>
Not selling obvious top, for third time. God damnit...

>>8928011
Getting married. Leave me the fuck alone if I'm looking at charts or tradingview. I'm fucking working you dumb cunt.
>>
using dice games to try doubling my eth trading stack. I'm up 25% total from a high of +60%. I'm not a damn addict, but I swear going for that double is so tempting.
>>
>>8928011
I bought everything at the ATH and now I'm down 50% of what I put in ($2k -> $1k).

I'm a poorfag but it makes me sad seeing people on /biz/'s portfolios who increased $1k to $10k in a matter of months, while I'm down 50%.
