1st to clarify why I write this essay. I have been gambling on the net or at land based betting houses for many years. I have discovered, the dependency can take a hold of you and you will not even realize it up until you are beaten. Particularly if you’re on a winning streak. I have gone through countless thousands of dollars in only a tiny amount of time and still on occasion, I’ll go a bit too far. It appears you are just having fun until you decide to pay attention to your squanderings and the anguish settles in, and then you keep telling yourself "I can get it back" repeatedly. It never works. Then you become queasy in your belly and the more you try the faster you lose.

When you notice that you are ahead, remain on the UP! When you start to be beaten, don’t tell yourself, "well perhaps just one more" and again and again, believe me, this method RARELY ever operates. Say you are betting on slot games, have an amount set aside before beginning your play. DO NOT exceed that limit, regardless how appealing. If you actually win, put that in a different cup. Do not spend your wins no matter what. Once you’ve gone through your primary set limit, call it a day. Leave, whether it is on the internet or at a land-based betting house, don’t stay around. Always remember, there will be another day, another time.

Remember, betting should be exciting not exhausting, sickening work! If you are not enjoying yourself, you don’t belong there. If youcan’t manage the loss, don’t even begin.
