Yesterday i wrote on Twitter that am going to give up drinking.
The reason is mainly money, for most of the last 6-12 months i have spent more than i earn. I sat down other day to see here i spend my money and on what and to see if i could cut anything.
Going to the pub most nights and filling the booze fridge came out top of the list of stuff that can be cut, While is not what i spend most of my money on ( others are necessary, roof over head and car etc), So the choice was either to cut down smoking and drinking in equal bits or one or other, I decided that i would give up drinking (alcohol) completely ( so i could still enjoy a fag) until my finances are in order, My debt is not out of control but i would rather sort it out now before i have to make more difficult choices.
I did consider cutting the take-away budget but seeing as my cooking skills are akin to Nick Knights commentary skills, i just couldn't take the risk.
I hope to have paid of my debts by Christmas.
Update: I have just remembered i have a bottle of Blue WKD in the fridge, so that will be last drink.
Update 2: I wonder if this aggressive tax avoidance, What say you Mr Osborne?
