How to quit addiction and save money

Updated on January 27, 2011

Introduce

An Old Chinese word of wisdom says that: when you do not know what do say, You can say an Old Chinese word of wisdom :-) An Old Indian word of wisdom says that bad habits are false friends who are health thief and money robber. This short article will not discover any health secret - its main task is let you count how many dollars You can save (or spend) by overcome additions.

I hope that this article will force You to rearrange Your life ;-)

Few honest answers

At the beggining, you must give honest answers for few important questions.

Here they are.

How many decks of cigarettes can you smoke out every day?

How many do You have to pay per one deck?

Multiplicate those numbers (cost of deck by quantity of smoked decks a day). In total of this counting is Your daily expeditiure on cigarettes.

Alcohol

At the same way, we can count outgoings connected with alcohol. If You like to go to a bar from time to time - it is all right. When You need 4 bottles of vodka everyday - this is not normal.

Think about it: how much do You spent on alcohol every day?

Casinos, Drugs and others...

Using the above described method how much cash You spend in a casino and other places like that. It is logical that spending cash in a casino etc is not a cheap thing.

Nothing hurts like the truth, does it?

Summary

Have You answered the questions? Did you do calculations?

Now You should recon Your expediture on cigarettes, alcohol and others. Multiplicate this total by 365 (because one year consist of 365 days). Final total is payment, You give for destroying your health.

Are You scared?

      You are doing great on your write ups froch. Around my area where I live people always waste money on cigarettes, alcohol, and gambling. There is nothing wrong with it if one takes the precautions of not over doing it. Great hub! Voting up!

      Hi Froch,

      This hub is COOL, I like the old words of wisdom. Although I don't have the habits mentioned here on this hub; the "truth" about bad habits actually do hurt. Thanks for this article.

      Thanks for this eye-opening hub. When we think that we are generally motivated by what we want (pleasure) and want we don't want (fear of some sort), reminding us about the cost and the consequences of our actions can help motivate us in quitting bad habits.

      We are the products of our habits. They can make us or break us. Unfortunately, we are most of time "instant gratification" minded.

      Useful hub, Froch.
