Expenses

I don’t make a ton of money but I happen to have quite expensive tastes. I’ve been told that I have champagne taste on a Bud Light salary. I happen to appreciate nice things (but not their price tags). Alcohol got far too expensive for me. Yes, the monetary expense got higher and higher as my drinking progressed. I bought more to get the same effect. Lawyer and court fees added up. Rehab wasn’t even close to free. I smoked a lot more cigarettes when I was drinking too. My money was flying out the window. What drinking the way I did really cost me, though, was my peace. I woke up on a daily with anxiety and shame. I couldn’t look anyone in the eye. I was hiding so much from everyone that I didn’t even know what I was hiding from whom. I lost my joy and sparkle. I lost pretty hair and skin. It cost me countless relationships too. Most of all, drinking the way I did cost me memories. I won’t get those years back but I’m making new, sober memories now…just in time too- before my dementia kicks in. It’s so much better on this side, trust me. I’ve done enough research for all of us. Happy Friday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
