For years, I’ve been asked how I stay happy even when the stock market is going down. And the answer is simple: drugs.
Whether it’s a little pot to take the edge off a bad day or some serious psychedelics to help me forget my troubles altogether, I find that drugs help me stay happy and positive even when the market is tanking.
Of course, I’m not suggesting that everyone start using drugs to cope with a down market. But if you’re struggling to find happiness in spite of your financial losses, it might be worth considering.
For instance, this one time the market took a nosedive and I was in danger of losing everything I had invested. But instead of panicking, I took a few hits of acid and went on a trip that showed me that money isn’t everything.
