My name is Jordan Belfort. I’m a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.

You gotta stay relaxed. Do you jerk off?

Jordan Belfort
How many times a week?
Mark Hanna
Like, um, three or four. Three or four times, maybe five.
Jordan Belfort
Gotta pump those numbers up. Those are rookie numbers in this racket. I myself, I jerk off at least twice a day.
Mark Hanna
Wow.

On a daily basis I consume enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month. I take Quaaludes 10-15 times a day for my “back pain”, Adderall to stay focused, Xanax to take the edge off, pot to mellow me out, cocaine to wake me back up again, and morphine… Well, because it’s awesome.
Jordan Belfort
