If you enjoy having a a cocktail occasionally, leave your cash out of the casino if you are going to do your drinking in a casino. I’m serious. Leave your pocketbook, your billfold, and keep all cash, credit cards and cheques back at the hotel. Only take whatever cash you expect to spend on drinks, tips and whatever pocket change you expect to burn and leave the rest behind.

Contemptuous? Not really. Just realistic. You could experience a success following a inebriated evening out with your comrades and be blessed sufficiently to hit a marathon roll at a hot craps game. Hang on to that adventure because it is as brief as it gets if you regularly consume alcohol and gamble. The two simply don’t mix.

Leaving your money back at the hotel is a tiny bit drastic, but defensive measures for drastic behavior is essential. If you play to win, then don’t drink alcohol and bet. If you like to blow your $$$$ nary a concern, then consume all the free alcohol you are able to handle, but don’t take credit cards and checkbooks to toss into the mix of following losses after your drunk as a skunk head squanders everything!

Permit me to carry this one step further. Don’t drink alcohol and then jump online to bet in your best-liked online casino either. I enjoy a beer from the comfort of my condo, however since I’m linked up through Neteller, Firepay and have credit cards in close proximity, I can’t consume alcohol and gamble.

What’s the reason? Although I don’t drink alcohol to excess, once I drink alcohol, it is certainly adequate to blur my better judgment. I gamble, so I don’t consume alcohol when betting. If you are a drinker, don’t gamble when you do. The two mix up for a ferocious, and expensive, cocktail.
