I spend to cheer myself up and Im struggling to save
I work away, Ive moved 5 hours away from my girlfriend of 2 and a half years and in a year or two Ill start doing deployments. Thats something for another day but Im trying to save whilst going through all my training but Im spending money on unnecessary things because it temporarily cheers me up from missing my girlfriend. How do I curb this issue?
Edit: thanks for everyones advice and for sharing their stories! Just a note that Im in the UK as many are assuming US. Apoligies, I should have specified. I’m also not depressed, but thanks for the concern.
