    Well it,s a long hard road to be a gaming nut. There are too many times when you wish you had never heard of online gaming and then there are the times when you smile and all the bills are paid and all is right with the world:what: But the real fact is that there is a lot of times that you spend cussing the slot,s and watching another poor slob get the BIG WIN. It is a feeling of lose and confusion but if you have been at it as long as some of us? Well then you chalk it up to playing the game.
    But for as long as i have been doing it I feel that there just must be a bad time when you are overdrawn and under appreciated by the folks who oddly enough help you spend the winning,s and give you hell when they feel the big hit of no wins at all.Then it is all your fault and god help me for caring?Yes it is a real honest to god case of the blues and i mean WOW can it get any worse? And of course it can.:eek: Yet when i feel the that i must weigh the good and bad of playing i must come up with the fact "that too much of anything is bad"??? I know that there is truly no real reason for doing this to one,s self? Other than self abuse or a willing attitude to at least try to make my lot in life a bit better? I try to keep things in control by that i mean to not allow my gaming to get in the way of "MY LIFE" but when you have people saying give me, give me and i do hate to disappoint. Why don,t i see it as what it really is and that is a problem if i allow it to be, and why don,t i see certain people as a problem also? It is a true conundrum and if i can spell, that word right it can,t be all bad:lolup: But at any rate thanks folks for being the one group willing to give it me straight and from the hip if they see that i,am in denial or even being a BIG DONK? Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff​

    Maybe it's the way I perceive what you're saying but surely placing all your hope on slots is not a good way to manage your finances? Pouring most of your money into gambling on the off-chance that you hit big is really not the way to go. Sure, it is nice when it does work but that can't be very often.....

    And yes, people will be happy to assist you in spending your winnings, but berate you when you lose it all? This sounds like a particularly bad system, maybe your gambling style is to hit the slots fast & hard, I don't know.

    But then nobody else should be accountable for your gambling losses, that's for you to manage. If anything, it sounds like you should budget better in regards to gambling, I know this is hard to do when you've played as long as most of us have.

    I'm sure others will have some better advice on managing your habits but I feel a break from gambling seems in order for you Shewoff, or at least a re-assessment on your betting patterns! :thumbsup:

    Thanks goatwack for your input. But i would never put all i have into play. I ,am a huge hand that takes care of many. I have children and ex-wives and mortgages aplenty. But the real fact is that i from time to time I need more than i can put together and i rely albeit wrongly that i can make a few plays and win. This is I admit the wrong stand to take, But having no family and no one but myself to rely on I use my few abilities to make up the difference if i can? It has been a very bad run and i,am feeling the loss,s this is not the norm by any mean,s but when it does happen over time i have found that speaking out about is helpful to my head. If that makes sense it is all in the fact that i may feel a bit like a loser and that is no good for an Alpha personality like mine. At any rate i felt i should make it clear that i will never put all i have in to play. I made $18,000.00 in the past 4 months playing at 5 casino,s I have dropped 1 and still play at 4 but only when and if i have the funds? I have gotten into a try to win a big jackpot on 1 game and it lead me astray and i frankly over extended. But the BLUES are very much real.Thanks again wack for your input. Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff​

    18000, Jesus Christ man, I throw a neighbourhood party whenever I manage a withdrawal of £500!! But then I consider 60p a spin 'high-rolling' lol.

    But I can definitely relate to over-extending your finances to try and make a quick buck, it almost never works. And when it does, you feel like some sort of genius!

    We all get the blues to an extent in between gambling sessions but I guess it's just about harnessing self- control and finding your limit.....maybe your sessions veer from extreme highs to crappy lows, that's just what happens when you burn the candle at both ends!

    Just remember that we're al losers in this scene, it's no big secret. Just relax a little Shewoff and not make it rule your thoughts, best of luck :thumbsup:
