    I mean...firstly I have to disclaim that you should never make life decisions based on advice given on the internet.

    But secondly I have to say quitting jobs have been some of the best decisions of my life, I'd be a dead man by now if it weren't for the ability to walk away from jobs you don't like to find new ones, though it's a habit that makes finding new ones harder. Still though, it's worth it.

    I'm with @Philosophus Vagus on this one. I used to work nightmare shifts which left me no time for myself, and which were having a negative impact on my relationships with others, as well as my mental health. I was constantly pressured to keep all of these extra jobs just because it earned me extra money, but the best decision I ever made was to leave them all behind save for my main job.

    @Smokeklown Mate, there are other ways to earn money. You may have to adjust your lifestyle, be a little stricter when it comes to your finances, etc, but it's better than suffering hallucinations due to lack of sleep. There's more to life than work. Maybe have a word with your boss and see if you can take up a new, more reasonable, hours.

    If you carry on the way you are, you wont be able to work at all. You'll likely develop an illness or suffer a mental breakdown. You don't want either of those things to happen to you.

    I'm more then certain that's what happened with my dad actually I just was lucky I found this job and any hours I just wish they'd hire someone so I could have more then 2 days off which are actually 2 of the 3 days I work at my other job which pays more so I'm not even sure which to quit

    Deciding which to quit is up to you. Personally, I'd look at how much I enjoy the job (you don't have to love it), how much I earn and how it influences my life. If I get on well with other employees, it earns me a fair wage and it doesn't consume my entire life, then I'd opt for that job.

    I appreciate the advice man it really helps me figure sheep out to have someone to tell me what I already know. That's not sarcasm I really mean it. It helps to hear from others. Especially when they know the spot your in and have been there themself.

    No problem. :) You're not alone in working multiple jobs and it having a negative impact on your life. At the end of the day, your well-being is far more important than earning some extra cash. It might be financially difficult to begin with, but it's better than working yourself into an early grave. Where there's a will there's a way, as people say.
