‘Did You Know’ your addiction has a price you are paying for it and a cost of having it?
The price of your addiction can be easily calculated. If you spend $50 a week for alcohol, nicotine, or another addiction, you have spent $2,600 a year for your addiction; $26,000 for 10 years of your addiction; $52,000 for 20 years of your addiction; $78,000 for 30 years of your addiction and so on it goes….
The real cost of your addiction may be what you could have done with that money, time and effort, as well as the cost of the damage to your health and relationships.
If you did not have that addiction what else would you invest that money into…more education, a car, a house, a nice vacation, paying down your debt, increasing your savings, etc…? Rewarding yourself with recovery and sobriety may be your best act of self-love.
