Just in case your health and sanity are not reason enough to get clean, buy yourself something nice. Add up how much money you are spending on drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, etc. whatever your vice is. You might be surprised how much you are spending, this in itself should make you consider quitting.
I used to smoke a pack a day, and drink pretty close to a twelve pack a night, I would buy a thirty pack about every three days. That is approximately one hundred and ten dollars a week. Break that down to four hundred a month, five thousand a year. To put this into perspective, you can buy a cheaper car after a year, or afford a small house payment in some areas.
I am not here trying to be a financial advisor, this is not financial advice, I am nowhere near qualified for that, this is simply something to help you understand and recognize how fast your money can disappear to an addiction. The point I am trying to get across here is, when you live in addiction you are sacrificing other things that I am betting you would rather have. Are you a gamer? Maybe you would like a new ps5, two months sobriety and its yours. You enjoy fishing? A month and you can have some top of the line gear. Do the math and decide what you want. I would wager you don’t really want the addiction anyway, trade it in for what you do want.
