Pretty soon he got sick of it and asked why heaven sucked so much. His guardian "angel" told him he wasn't in heaven but in hell and had to do all that stuff for eternity. If Jesse doesn't get back with Walt, he's going to be stuck doing that same crap all the time. Of course if he gets back with Walt he's either going to die or go to prison.
I think Jesse, almost as much as Walt, needs the excitement of being in the meth business.
Jesse rarely spends money--he's got a house and car both paid off and had just that one run of splurging when he bought the sound system. I bet he's got enough money saved up to at least keep him going until he finds something he wants to do. I agree there's a temptation to go back to being a good-for-nothing kid, but he's grown up a ton in the last two seasons. I think he wants a family and a job and to do good for once in his life. As strange as it is, the last few months of the meth business has taught him some responsibility.
