Then soon he'll be able to pay for the top psychologists in the UK, but what he really needs to do is study trading to understand why there are bad times to buy.

The whole reason he or she is accessing therapy is because their addiction has left them on the bones of their arse,!

Only in the sense that for about 16 months from Dec 17 to April 19 they would have been losing money. If the asset continues to rise in value for the next two years, then his/her biggest problem will be not buying enough of it!

Addictions are only bad if they bring negative repercussions. For example, being addicted to fruit and salad would be a healthy addiction.

Oh my god, what a surprise, you are saying things that are complete and utter nonsense. You’ve already repeatedly had your nose rubbed in the fact that you know less than nothing about psychology, there is no need to over-egg it so much. Even you, though, I would have expected to understand the definition of a word before using it. I know you don’t like people assuming you’re drunk, but you need to understand that they’re being kind. The alternatives are that you’re trolling or stupid.

The last thing they need to do is spend any more time on the focus of their addiction. But without disclosing too much, this person, without any shadow of a doubt, has forgotten more than you will ever know about crypto currency. Can I ask, are you being intentionally stupid or what?

Anyone who knew anything about trading and cryptocurrency wouldn't have been buying into it after the spring of 2018, I shit you not. The trend is your friend.

This person works in the sector. It’s safe to say they know a lot. Certainly more than you.

I want to know how the fuck this person expects you to help them when you know less about cryptocurrency than I do about mascara. What bullshit mantras are you going to use on him/her?

You don’t want to know that, you just want to flap your useless gums some more. However, if it ever occurs to you to stop flapping and start absorbing, you’ll find that the focus of the addiction is not the main issue, and so this person could be addicted to unwarranted chest-thumping on the internet and still be helped by timely intervention. I know some about cryptocurrency, but your ignorance misleads you yet again. Knowledge of cryptocurrency for the therapist is the least important aspect. They have to want to be helped though, James. There, a mantra. Sad to say that time has not yet come for some who probably need it.

Christ, when it comes to just how stupid someone can make themselves look, you are a revelation.
