I would say I was a late bloomer, I didn't start going out until 2004, because I used to work on weekend nights, until about 4am, so I really didn't go out. I would say from 2005 - 2010 I have made up for the time I have missed, since I got a 9 to 5, my weekends were free, and then started the spending spree, lol. I know I spent like 10 - 15k each year on clubbing, trips etc. so in those 5 years I spent from 50k - 70k.
The last two years I have cut this down to about 1k - 2k each year, by just staying home working on music, and I travel a lot for my job, so I don't really have time to attend the events. Also I stopped drinking, and that saves a lot. Looking at that number is making me depressed
