You do not have to buy anything to get to your 2018 return. You have to access it by using exactly the same account and user ID you used when you prepared the return.
Many people have multiple TT accounts and forget how to access them. Log out of the account you are in now.
Or did you use the desktop version of TurboTax? If so, the files are on your own hard drive or any backup device you used like a flash drive.
