Freewheel advice

So I have a SS commuter bike that gets some heavy abuse, its my go to bike for pretty much most of my riding.

I have found that using cheap freewheels (Dicta / ACS) means that I am having to swap them every month or about 150 miles or so whichever comes first otherwise I get a nasty clunk noise. Am I likely to reduce the life of the chain/wheel by swapping out the freewheel every month.

I know White Industries make a decent freewheel called the ENO but its £100 and seems to designed for skinnier 1/32 chains, I have a 1/8 chain.

Does anyone currently go down the route of swapping out freewheels regularly, what are the things to watch out for ?
