I agree with you here - once you add up how much your addiction costs it shows how much money you waste.

Its feels great to use the money I saved to buy clothes, meals, feed etc

...because I don't like the feeling of being powerless over alcohol and all that other nasty stuff.

Also I want my brain chemicals to stay at natural levels.

because...

I have a new painting to paint and a new novel to write! I am excited that I chose not to drink last night, and now have a clear head to get creative. I will not drink at the hockey game later, either. TOO EXPENSIVE!

Because I need to paint the bathroom, and I'll do a much BETTER job of it while sober.

I can't think of how many sloppy home reno projects I've undertaken while guzzling back beer after beer. LOL.
