The cost of drinking

I know this is a touchy subject. A lot of people get upset if you even dare insult alcohol nevermind bring up dirty filthy money too.

At the peak of my drinking, I was knocking back two bottles of wine a night, plus a bottle of whiskey over the weekend.

At a rough guess that equates to a daily spend on alcohol of $23.00 per day.

A weekly spend of $161.00 or $724.00 every month.

Wow! No wonder I didn’t want to see this figure while I was still drinking!

That figure would have shocked and depressed me. BUT, it still wouldn’t have stopped me drinking, and that is perhaps the scariest thought of all.

If I hadn’t stopped drinking, it’s entirely likely I would have continued consuming booze at that ungodly rate.

Or even increased it further to compensate for my growing tolerance to the effects of the drug.

This means that over the next decade (if I had lived that long) I would have blown another $86,940 on my addiction.

When you can buy real estate with the amount you are spending on booze, you know you are in trouble!

Even this startling admission is only a half-truth. Because it doesn’t allow for any of those ridiculously priced $400 bottles of ‘fine art’, Christmas, Birthdays or any other formal excuse to get excessively drunk.


The financial cost of drinking alcohol daily is something we avoid thinking about… for good reason.

Dare you work it out?

I was spending thousands every year on drinking a poison. While telling my children and family that we couldn’t afford the expensive vacations.

I claimed we could not afford other little luxuries. Things that we might have actually been able to have if I wasn’t lying to them, and of course, to myself.

Hopefully, as you are starting to see, alcohol misled me. It lied to me, and it continues to lie to you – the challenge I throw down to you now is ‘what are you going to do about it?”

I encourage you to honestly do this exercise for yourself. Calculate how much money you are spending on a common drug addiction.

You will no doubt come up with an amount of money. I am certain that you can think of a hundred different and better things to spend it on.

Sadly the financial cost is almost insignificant when compared to the other factors that need to be considered when you try to take stock of what alcohol has stolen from you.

When you finally stop drinking

When you finally stop drinking this attractively packaged poison. You will get a sudden influx of time, energy, and money.

At first, you may even panic at how different life feels but slowly you will realize just how much booze has been stealing from you and your family over the years.

Removing alcohol from your life is like getting a huge pay rise for doing absolutely no extra work.
