I'm interested in anyone here who has at any point in their life had some kind of addiction or near-addiction e.g. gambling, booze, drugs etc. What I'd like to know is how much (roughly) you ended up blowing on your habit, and could you afford it or did you spend beyond your means? I have a little theory about this and trying to verify it with some real world examples. Feel free to PM if you prefer, I'll keep it in confidence & delete the message once I've read it.
