The other important savings I'm seeing is saving myself a lot of sickness and misery. I can't believe how awful I used to feel every day...

Congratulations.

For me it was not just the money saved on alcohol, but also the decrease in stupid online spending decisions when buzzed.

I'm only day 11 but 1 thing I do is I smoke when I drink, i never smoke when I'm not drinking, I really dont like it when I'm not . It's like a timer, once I have 1 cigarette that's it then for the night..so I'll be saving on cigs too cause they are so expensive.

I wanted to add about some other things I've saved on. I have a mortgage and even with low rates - I was too lazy and drinking all the time to like re-finance, for 10 years.... I also let my insurance rates for auto and home go way up from inaction and my 10 year life insurance lapsed so - yep they hiked that crap up as much as they could. Even my first year sober, I was like - this is SOBER first, the rest comes later. So last year - during start of year 2 - I tackled some of these annoying time consuming things of going through new quotes, making decisions, researching options and getting on with cutting down unnecessary extra costs/expenses I always *KNEW* I should be addressing these things in the past years -- but motivation was lost. When every day is getting to the bottle after work, then trying to survive through work hunger over and a mess -- these types of complicated, time consuming tasks were ignored.
