    Junk Silver Junkie Calling it Quits

    Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm calling it quits for the moment. I have been struggling with addiction for some time. It seems that I have an addictive personality and thats just me. I spend every waking free moment chasing the Brinks or Loomis dragon, back alley hunting and lately dumping at a pick up bank. My car is littered with wrappers and my kids cant stand to be around me on skunky days. It gotten to the point that I call in to work to take road trips with the hopes of finding a granny dump. Kidding about the dumping but the rest is true. Yall I got it bad. Im laying it down after this last pick up...just one more. SERIOUSLY just one more.

    Lol, we all have an addictive personality otherwise we won't be on this board. We can't change our personality except choose our activity, may it be sex, drugs, gamble, sports(fishing, hunting, etc.), yard sale hunting, CRH, etc. IMHO, CRH is the most positive thing to hook on.

    Im still going through junk silver withdrawals. I find myself looking at some of the threads just trying to get a taste but its not enough. My first day I went to my LCS and drop three hundred bucks and have spent another three or so since then. Im spending more money now than hunting. LAWD help me!

    CRHing
    When I stopped CRHing for a while last year I went back to hunting for coins on ebay which is what I used to do several years ago before I really got into CRHing on a regular basis so I can kinda relate to what you're saying. But buying silver near melt value every week can get to be rather expensive so I prefer getting my silver @ fv these days. CRHing is more fun and affordable.

    Good luck to u.

    I bought a lot of buffalos and V nickels late last year on ebay. Most of the coins I bought were lower grade but I got some pretty good deals. I think I bought around 30 rolls of full date and partial date buffalos and quite a few V nickels in various grades. I think most of the partial date buffs that are mostly in the '20's I bought for only about .15 each. Good luck with your collection set.

    johnomerta - addiction, even to CRH'ing, can be a very serious problem. Glad to see you're taking proactive steps to control it. It's very easy to see how a guy would rather take a road trip than head to work. Good luck.

    If you pick up a few oz every week and start a pile it will keep your silver bug happy!! Then what ever you find will be the extra prize.

    I stopped a while ago. Ill probably startup eventually again but no time soon.

    You'll have so much more free time on your hands now.
