I Quit Smoking. I now use the money saved to buy crypto.

I made my first investment into crypto late February early March of 2017. I made another smaller investment right before the Bitcoin Fork in August.Being a crypto trader has taught me a lot about investing.It has made me better at money managementIt has made me better at sensing bullshit when researching .Most importantly it has taught me how to acquire something that I want without spending face value. For example if I really want to put $100 into two cryptos but only have the leverage to get 1… I instead swing trade with $100 until I double it so that I now have what I need.Its taught me a lot.However, last month I really really wanted to dump $1000 into a mid-cap ALT. The only problem is I always refuse to use money to buy back in.So I quit cigarettesI quit buying lottery TicketsI cut down smoking weed by 75%I pack my lunch nowAfter a month I saved $1276! The alt I wanted is now up about 25% , I over achieved the amount I wanted to save, so now I can buy the same amount I originally wanted one month ago. I never knew I was wasting so much money with my bad habits. I always figured in my head I was spending about $600 a month. I guess when you have money to spend you really don’t understand how much you waste. Americans waste a lot of money.Lottery tickets I didnt spend much on. Maybe $50 a month but hey that’s $600 a year, and there’s no freaking way that I’m going to win the lottery even the Cash 5 which usually only pays out $150k is 1,000,000:1 odds! Not only that that will get taxed worse than crypto in New jersey. Its really only $75k. Pretty shity odds for what I make in a year with overtime.I have a craving for cigarettes every once in awhile so instead I do a few push-ups every time I need a cigarette and I post about crypto on Reddit, Twitter, and facebook. Writing down my thoughts and experiences on Reddit has really helped me kick my cravings!So every week I made a pact with myself to spend 50% of what I save to buy Crypto.And get this someone tried to send FUD my way when I told them what I did with the money I saved.”You did a good move by quitting smoking, but a worse move using that money to buy Crypto . At least you’re actually getting something out with cigarettes”I swear that was actually said but that comment speaks for itself haha.
