    I just got back from the store from picking up a few needed thing. For the last few days, I have been telling myself I should start taking some Vitamins. Well today at the store I decided to take a look over them.

    I walk up to this wall of a zillion different kinds of Vitamins. Not really knowing what I’m looking for, and I’m a bit confused on what to get. On the other hand, I do notice the price of these little buggers. Almost every bottle is like $15 bucks! I say to myself “15 bucks! To heck with that!”.

    So I go about the store with my other shopping. Then all of a sudden, I have a small epiphany, and start to laugh at myself a bit.

    “Why am I growling about spending 15 bucks for a bottle of 100 (3 1/3 months supply), when I used to spend 10+ dollars a day for alcohol”.

    Lets see here…
    3 1/3 month supply of stuff that helps me = $15 bucks
    3 1/3 month supply of alcohol that hurt me = $1000+ bucks

    HAHAHAHAHA Yeah… So as you can see I snapped to my senses real quick 🙂

    So anyways, I ended up snagging the Men’s Health One A Day ones, and glad I did.

    Time I get healthy people! Who’s with me! It’s pill poppin’ time, but the healthy ones! 😛

    I hope you are all having a great day! Stay strong people! Sober life is the way to be!

    I’ve been taking a One-A-Day for as long as I can remember. Maybe this helped me through the hangovers, etc on the occasions that I had them. Every morning, I’d eat something and take a multivitamin.

    Good luck!

    lol – i can totally relate!!!

    Being young in sobriety I frequently suffer from the thought of spending money on something USEFUL when in the past it was no biggie to spend it on booze and cigarettes!!

    I’m still in the process of changing my thinking in that I don’t have to sacrifice money for useful or needed things for booze/cigs I’m no longer buying! That was a great post!
