Just wanted to pat myself on the back for not spending any money on booze this pay. First time in nearly 3 years!! Go me. A small step in the right direction
That’s awesome!! Keep it up!!
Hey that’s great!! Good job. I can’t imagine how rich we’d all be if we never spent a nickel on booze. Or DOC. Or both. Have a great sober weekend. Valentines dinner will be much cheaper
Kels you my sweet are coming on leaps and bounds,keep it moving your doing great
What a great feeling x hope u go and treat yourself to something nice x you deserve it x
I’m treating my daughter and I to a fun day in town tomorrow with her friend, and I bought a few new things for my basement I am trying to spruce up a bit. It feels good
That was awesome.
Keep on making wonderful and wise choices
So pleased for you . Your daughter will love having mummy time as well . X
Keep it up girl! Sooo proud of you Baby steps! Happy Valentine’s day!!!
Awesome achievement Well done
Hell yeah! Get ready to have a lot more money. Treat yourself and your daughter. This is from my other sober app. $42 a week at $6 bucks a day is actually being modest, but I think in reality is was more like $60-80 a week for me. But this is for a year and 8 months.
Good on you Kels. I remember one of your posts earlier in the week, you were worried I think about payday. Great to hear that your having good times with your daughter. Awesome news
I estimated my average daily alcohol spending was about $25. So far in 19 days that equates to around $475. It’s crazy to think how fast your bank account increases!
I think that is HUGE… So happy for you and your daughter… Nice work!!!
I’ve saved 38,882 bucks since getting sober. This could be you!
Thank you for the support and encouragement everyone:)
You reminded me of an exercise we did in treatment. Adding up how much we’ve spent on our addiction over the years, including lost wages and lost property.
I was shocked to find I’d spent at least $40,000 over the years!
Congratulations on getting to keep more of your paycheque! I love these threads on the savings side of sobriety. If our addiction had been a tax we would have been screaming.
I have saved $3340 even at only $3 per day. I posted recently about how I have been renovating and started investing. I also donate to charity monthly, donated to a political party this year and have a digital newspaper subscription to support the free Press. It’s nice being a member of a functioning democracy. I’d like to believe that if I actually screamed about a tax I would have little bit more of a voice now. My city councilor and MPP do both know me by name.
Awesomeness! Keep it up you can do it.
