Just a calculation I'd like to share

Posted , 8 users are following.

Here is a little calculation I did this morning which I found both shocking and motivating at the same time:

Year after year I drank everyday...

Cost per year = 6225$ (with no exaggeration and could be a bit more)

100% drinking days in the year

Since April 25 to August 15 I decided to put some control and realized I was drinking too much and did this by myself...

49/112 days were drinking

spent 832$ saved 1056$

43% drinking days

Since I joined this FORUM August 15 and decided that I needed a bit more help and listening ears

11/37 days drinking was involved

Spent 192$ saved 448$ 29% drinking days

On the August 24 is when I decided to cut back even more

4/28 14% drinking days

Also another point I would like to add is that on those drinking days I dropped down by half of what I used to drink....

In the last 5 months I have come down so much.

I do have medication for the Sinclair method on hand if I decide to go that way in the future

    Wow..you are doing great.

    Why not just use the Sinclair Method and that will help you cut down even more.

    Good work figuring it out.

      What they say in AA IS:

      Whatever WORKS!

      I'm not a big pill fan myself....I think if you can do this without the aide of drugs...all the power to you smile.
