"This is actually a big win for me guys!! Stayed sober for 124days now. I put 3,000 in my safe box each time I feel like drinking and am able to save these up. So happy I can save approximately N375k from not drinking.
"Would have spent this 50k with my friends yesterday night to drink and hangout, but I decided to save it all here.
"I had to stay away from some friends that influenced my drinking, I just keep giving them excuses that work has not been great lately and I can’t hangout with them rn, this has really helped me focus and I was able to achieve what I wanted."
