From Alcoholic to Rich...

Hey Everyone!!

Happy day number 5 for me and going strong!!

I just thought that I would give everyone an interesting perspective on the financial aspects of alcoholism. I did an audit of my alcohol consumption to calculate how much I spent a year in drinking (i.e. Bars, Distributors, etc). Here's the figure I came up with for myself:

Yearly Consumption: $2,035.61
Monthly Consumption: $169.63
Daily Consumption: $5.58

Here are some figures that may shock you as they did me; if I invested the drinking money into the stock market instead of literally “pissing” it away:

05 years @ 10% $13,495.46
10 years @ 10% $36,634.66
15 years @ 10% $75,451.38
20 years @ 10% $139,678.32
30 years @ 10% $416,726.75

I hope that I have sparked some insight into my “former” problem.
