I Spend Less on Alcohol!!

I was thinking about my post yesterday and I realized that there is one area that I spend far less on.  I can't even imagine how much money I used to spend at the bar.  A typical night was $30-40 and I usually went out 4-5 nights per week.  Yes, that's a lot of money.  Sometimes, I would only have a couple drinks and it would be under $20 but sometimes I would want to have fun and do shots and I would spend $80-100. 

Is it any wonder that my best friend is now sober and an addiction counseler?  Yes, I abused alcohol.  I can't even fathom how much money I would have if I would have invested all that money.  However, to be realistic, I needed to be wild and have fun when I was younger.  I never wanted to have kids and regret the time that I would be spending at home with them.  I partied so much when I was younger that I truly got it out of my system. 

Do you spend less on alcohol now than you did previously?

  1. You know, this is something that crosses my mind every once in a while and P and I have had discussions about it. I partied but it was never my thing but sometimes I wonder if I got everything else out of my system that I should have gotten out of it now that I am still at an "appropriate" age. Choosing to settle down early is a big choice and one I doubt I will live to regret later. I mean we can still go wild as a couple as kids won't come for a while but maybe I might have missed out on some of the goodness of single life. Oh well. I'll never know now :)
