    How much spending money do you give youself?

    This does not include direct debits/bills etc.

    It does include petrol/food/vinyl/drink/drugs.

    I get through £100 a week, how much do you spend?

    Well I get paid monthly, so I pay my rent an bills an shit at the start of the month which leaves me with about £400 for the rest of the month, I tend to have two £150 weeks at the start then two £50 weeks at the end of the month

    No limit I never tie my self down with restraints if I want a £100 hip hop rarity I buy it, if I want to fuck off to a different country at short notice, if I wanna send myself into a life or death drug induced situation I will. I'll think about it next month.

    I get paid monthly too, me and the Mrs both put 850 each into our joint account and that sorts the mortgage/bills/food etc etc.

    Then i pay mobile phone bill/credit cards bills then the rest is mine to drink/smoke/snort etc etc.

    Gonna be hard this Feb though as i'm £700 overdrawn already!

    am a consultant in the housing sector and when i go back home to see my mates in the pub they all spend shitloads all weekend like i used to on coke and beer and gambling and women etc and its madness. they all live with there mums but have loads of cash in there pockets but none in the bank if you get me, and to honest it can be quite depressing watching them enjoy themselves without a care in the world.

    But when i get back to my job, girlfriend and 3 bed semi i realise how rich i actually am and that one day soon they will envy me and will be unable to bring themselves out of the WORK - DRUGS - BEER - GAMBLING circle that ther'ye all in.

    The fact is eventually the day comes when your quite happy spending your money on constructive things for your life and you feel content with your inner wealth.
