Time. The more I brew, the more I want to brew even more. I guess that's the addiction part of it!

Secondary answer: "beginner" brew kits rarely include kettles. You START with a kettle, dang it. Plastic buckets and tubing you can get anywhere.
That is a good point , we bough a 120 dollar truebrew kit and we were pretty pissed it didn't have a kettle

The way I always manage to either 1.) make a huge mess or 2.) avoid a huge mess,l and feel great about it but somehow hours or days later SWMBO finds little hop or grain pieces in weird places.

Lets see, pet peeve . . . oh I have one - how fast I go through PBW and how expensive it is.
Know how we got around giving away our beer stock? Make a 5-gallon batch of Apfelwein. We bottled 26 22-oz bottles last night. Maybe half to 3/4 will go out as gifts for Christmas over the next few days. A big bottle of Apfelwein goes a long way and it's cheap. We spent a little more than $1 per bottle.

And the beer? Well, that's mine. And friend's, if they come to visit.

Forgetting I've left a ball valve open on my kettle or MLT when pouring something in.
