After 2 months I noticed that I had $1000 more on my bank account. Yes, that’s a lot, but do the math and you notice it’s not that much.

I live in New York. In order to spend $1000 on alcohol I only have to spend $33 everyday. Assume that I have 2–3 cocktails every other day (which are $10 each without tip), including some wine bottles every month for at home I can easily spend $1000.

Some might think that this is heavy alcoholism, but trust me when I say that having 1–2 drinks everyday in New York is more than normal.

 Jeebus. I get twitchy just spending more than $10 for lunch when I’m at work.

  1. I think those prices are not especially high for cocktails anywhere in the U.S.

    It’s the “2-3 drinks in a bar/club every single day” thing that lifted my eyebrows.

    I drink fairly regularly. I have a tall (40 oz?) Straw-ber-Rita whenever I record XCOM, because I’m normally an uptight guy, and it helps loosen me up. I also tend to have 1-3 more drinks within a week, depending on if I’ve bought a sixer of cider, or a bottle of Drambuie recently. So, we’ll say at the top-end, I’m drinking 6 times a week. I wouldn’t call that heavy, but I would say it’s probably above “normal”.

    And I drink at home, rather than paying those kind of costs.

    But I guess everyone’s got their own “normal”.
