Learning From My Betting Blunders

I have been betting on the internet or at land based casinos for many years. I have been taught, the addiction can acquire a hold of you and you will not even notice it till you are bankrupt. Especially if you are on a run. I have been through many hundreds of dollars in a very short period of time and even today, I can go a bit too far. It feels like you are only having sum excitement up until you decide to track your loss and the blame sets in, and then you continue advising yourself "I can likely gain it back" ad infinitum. It does not work. Then you get sick to your gut and the more you attempt the quicker you relinquish.

When you find that you are up, STAY on the UP! When you begin to relinquish, don’t tell yourself, "well only maybe 1 more" and again and again, believe in me, this method RARELY ever functions. Say you plan on wagering on slot machines, keep a figure set aside prior to beginning your play. DON’T go over that boundary, regardless of how appealing. If you happen to succeed, put that in an alternate canister. Don’t risk your winnings regardless of what happens. Once you have wagered through your beginning determine cutoff, stop. Back off, whether it is on the internet or in a brick and mortar casino, do not stick around. Make sure to remember, there will be another day, another time. Obviously, this method usually will work for any casino game that you bet on, be it bingo, poker, video poker, keno, twenty-one or any other game.

Remember, wagering is supposed to be entertaining not exhausting, appalling work! If you are not having fun yourself, you don’t belong there. If you can’t pay for the losses, don’t even begin.
