Learning From My Wagering Blunders

February 21st, 2010 by Nikhil Leave a reply »

First to explain the reason I wrote this essay. I have been gambling on the net or at land based betting houses for many years. I have learned, the fixation can take a hold of you and you will not even notice it until you are penniless. Especially if you’re on a winning run. I have gone through countless tens of thousands of dollars in a very short amount of time and to this day on occasion, I will go too far. It seems you’re just having a blast until you start to track your loss and the guilt settles in, and then you keep telling yourself "I can get it back" constantly. It never works. Then you become queasy in your gut and the harder you attempt the faster you lose.

When you notice that you are ahead, remain on the UP! When you start to be beaten, do not tell yourself, "well just maybe just one more" and again and again, believe me, this concept RARELY ever works. Say you are betting on slot games, have a bankroll set to the side prior to beginning your play. DO NOT exceed that limit, regardless how alluring. If you actually succeed, put that in a separate pot. Do not risk your winnings no matter what. As soon as you’ve gone through your original set limit, call it a day. Head out, whether it is on the net or at a physical betting house, don’t stay around. Always keep in mind, there will be another day, a different time.

Keep in mind, betting is supposed to be FUN not backbreaking, sickening work! If you are not enjoying yourself, you do not belong there. If youcan not manage the cost, do not even start.
