/ How much do you spend on drinking?
January and February - nothing as i need to allow my innards to recover.
Very little. £5-10 a week?. Lady Blue doesn't drink at all, and I tend to buy a bottle of vodka a month and steadily work my way through it. Occasionally we'll go to a pub or club and buy a couple of drinks, but its rare.
Jeez - you lot are much better than me!
In an average month I would probably spent a couple of hundred pounds on drinking including the extra costs that go with it (quiz machines, crisps etc). This would be broken down as follows:
Bottle of Whisky: £30-40
3-4 trips to the pub to watch football, rugby etc, 3-4 pints each trip: £60-80
Approx 1 'night out' a month: £60
Beers and wine to drink in the house: £30
Wine with meals out (avg 2 per month): £30
Quickly adds up. When I was a bit younger and went out a lot more it would easily be double the above.
Not boasting mind, just being honest.
hard to say but maybe £70 this year but thats only because i bought a bottle of whisky the other month otherwise it would have been about £40
About four years ago I knocked it on the head, spent six months tee-total whilst training for a half ironman, and since then spend very little on alcohol, maybe £40 or £50 some months and pretty much zero others.
Prior to that I was in the pub every night, reckon I was spending around £500 a month on booze, never mind the takeaways etc.
Cost was the probably the primary motivator at the time, but feel much better all round for it.
Spent 80 quid last night! I hardly Ever go out as a stay at home dad and other half works away a lot with the Navy so I dont feel too guilty :)
Last time I was out was Feb so maybe 40 quid then, 80 last night and out next week so another 50 odd quid. All in all, 170 quid for the whole year which ain't too bad.
This week I flew back Sunday from the US.. so drank a few whiskeys.. then had a beer watching football Wednesday that's been it. I rarely have city nights out so no taxi's needed, no kebab etc.. no entrance fees.. so £40 is as much as a night out will cost.
probably about 40-50 quid per week on average. I'm Generally in the pub fridays and saturday evenings and 20 quid per night is typical i suppose, then maybe a bottle of wine over the week with meals.
Jesus that's £2500 grand a year! hmmm, might have to have a think about that a bit more.
I drink about twice a month, three pints max per session so total cost fifteen to twenty pounds including crisps and pork pie.
On average about £5 a month, although I frequently go for months without buying or drinking alcoholic beverages. I have one kidney and intend to look after it.
I've been told that I have been banned from my local pub (not that I've ever been there regularly).
I normally drink at home, a variety of bottled ales - I get a few bottles at a time when they are on a decent special offer - I don't like to pay more than £1.50 per bottle. I try to keep about 40 bottles in stock, just myself I usually drink 2-3 bottles a week - so lets say spend on average around £15 per month. -if I am out drinking in pub or bar or have other people round the cost fluctuates fairly wildly as does the frequency of these occasions.
In the last 3 weeks, nothing.
More usually, anything up to $100 a week.
About twenty quid a week, probably, mostly in the pub. Not every week.
3-4 bottles of wine a week €25/€100 week/month
Maybe 2 meals out a month so probably €40/month
Maybe 1 night out a month €100/month
Odd visit to the pub here and there €60/month
Random beers in the house, mates gaffs, etc €50-80/month
So i'm guessing €350-450 a month between the pair of us roughly.
Not much generally, probably a bottle of wine once a fortnight to a month and a bottle of port every couple of months, so around £3 - £4 a week on average, for 2 of us. A year ago I was drinking a bottle of port a week but can't really be bothered any more. My GF isn't a big drinker either, we'll drink a bottle of port between us at a party or something but don't generally bother with wine with meals, preferring soft drinks.
