    Not being able to just walk out my door and have endless options of fun and excitement. Also, not "legally" being able to wager on whatever sporting event I'm likely watching.

    Back to reality feeling. Even if you go to Vegas for just a couple days, when you come back to the job it is different (maybe it is all the brain cells I kill with Alcohol). I immediately go back to work and think about saving for the next trip because I lost my money lol

    Having responsibility again. Plus learning the value of a dollar all over. I find myself annoyed at some of the little life things for awhile, especially at work. There’s just something about Vegas and the 100% carefree enjoyment that makes it hard to settle back into “normal” life (more so than other vacation destinations).

    Coming back and remembering the true value of a CNote. In Vegas they're so plentiful, like a 10 spot at home.

    The reality of back to being a cog in the world system of being a [STRIKE]slave[/STRIKE] productive member of society. And once again being in the waiting line for [STRIKE]freedom[/STRIKE] another vacation away from that reality.

    Vacation is the freedom to go and do whatever, whenever you want. Except the super rich (creators of the rigged financial system most of us live in) can do it anytime they want. Its their system, so its their choice, such as Paris Hilton. If she wakes up bored and says screw it, I'm going to Paris today (THE REAL PARIS), just for LUNCH (James, get the learjet ready), she can and will do it.

    Post Vegas Depression is getting back in the waiting line again. :thumbsdown:

    James, get the learjet ready, and James, I'll see you in about 6 months. :Þ

    Sooo true. I spread money quickly on vacation (even though budget-oriented) and I have to readjust to my normal spending when I get back which can take time sometimes.

    Definitely.

    Having to think about work, paying bills, and all the other BS stuff you forget about when in Vegas.

    +1 on the value of money thing.

    I find these posts entertaining.

    I remain in a fog at least 2 months after a trip. Everything seems to go in slow-motion even when I am planning another trip. Usually because comps and some discounted show dates are not yet available, so things are not yet concrete. I go into autopilot to get into the groove those first two months. I think also because I tend to stay in Vegas for a little while and I do Vegas at full-speed non-stop. So technically my body and mind should be exhausted but the euphoria/adrenalin/endorphins brought on by a Vegas trip keep my mind from fully acknowledging my true exhaustion. I feel so ready...all the time! It takes my body some extra time to readjust.

    Money is like water in Vegas. At least that's how I described it after my first trip. No one bats an eye at a hundred. Back home, a hundred is inspected and usually marked on by the fake detecting pens they use. There is definitely an exhilarating feeling when I pull my blackjack buy in ($100) out several times daily. The money just seems to flow and it feels so good feeling ”rich" and carefree for a few days.

    I didn't have the depression this time. I do have a long recovery time after Vegas though. Just due to health. So, I make sure I have time to just lay around after we get home.

    For some reason every time I come he from LV I smell cigarette smoke everywhere I go, even when no one within a mile is smoking. Strange how it sticks in my nose. Makes me long for the tables....I don't even smoke, yet I miss it. Odd.

    I probably have the worst post vegas symptoms. When I leave I don't post on this forum until I either have a trip booked or vegas withdrawals kick in. I generally can only last about 1 and a half to 2 months before withdrawals kick in. Once withdrawals kick in, I'm watching anything vegas related and on this forum constantly lol.

    For months leading up to the trip I am here every day. After a trip I have no interest in reading the board for a while. I love this place, but right after a trip I'm so bummed to not be there I just can't read about everyone else's fun for a little while. But I always come back :peace:
