Welcome and thanks for visiting!  Drugs and FIRE is a blog dedicated to personal finance and the pursuit of FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early) from a pharmacist’s point of view.

About the Author:

My name is Jeff and I’m a 30-something year old retail pharmacist that’s been in retail pharmacy since high school.  While I think that many people seeking FIRE do so because they hate their jobs, I feel fortunate not to count myself among them.  For me, the goal of financial independence isn’t about quitting my job or leaving my career.  It’s about getting what I want out of my career.  The freedom to be the pharmacist I want to be.

Aside from that, I live with my wife in New England and enjoy travelling, learning, and more recently, woodwork.  I also dabble in homebrewing but I might be more interested in drinking beer than brewing it.
