If i could get ALL the money back!

So i work in a bank and decided why not use the statistics that this app is showing me how much money ive saved… i opened a savings account and keep depositing what i didnt spend on alcohol.

Great idea!! You won’t be disappointed over time!!

It sure does add up. My trackers say I have saved roughly US$16,000 on alcohol and US$55,000 on cigarettes. Totaling US $71,000…yup, that’s a lot. How the hell did that happen?? :upside_down_face: And why wasn’t I as smart as you and saving it???

Good morning:) 5:50am PST and just reading posts before getting ready for work. I hear ya on saving money when your lifestyle changes, and creating an account is a great idea. I actually started putting money aside every payday into my savings account. My savings account never had that much money in it, believe me lol. 27 days sober and I do not miss the feelings of shame and regret. No more checking my phone as well to see if I made an embarrassing call or wrote a weird text. I am awake with a clear head. My little family is happy. I am blessed. You guys here are amazing. Thank you and have a wonderful day❤️

I agree 100%!! I used to get angry at night and send random texts and in the morning had such regret and shame!! As far as my account, im just depositing what i wouldve spent on alcohol daily. I work at a bank so it was easy to get an account started and money in every day!! Alcohol is the biggest wasre of money but it is made to appear glamorous! Stay strong! We dont need this poison!:face_vomiting:

The bank account thing is such a great idea. Love it :+1:

My tracker on the app says I’ve saved almost $1,900 since I stopped drinking.
