Will this be enough to live on and pay utility bills. We are social drinkers on a weekend and I am the only one who smokes which is tobacco.
I look forward to hearing from anyone to give me a rough idea.

Many people survive on alot less. Some of the people working for me only have their income - which is less than his pension - and they have a car, 2 kids and the wife to support. Yes, of course it can be done.
