    OK this would obviously depend to a large degree on how well you did so I want you to think of how you feel after your "typical" online gaming session.
    You may choose more than 1 option.

    I am going to choose later I am too Unhappy,angry and frustrated right now!

    I voted 'frustrated' because most times I'm either angry that I played 200+ spins & didn't get a feature, so deviated from my 'plan', or that I got well ahead of the game but let it slip by being careless or starting with my bets too high. :(

    Overall though I'm generally fairly happy. ;)

    Good poll! :thumbsup:

    I wouldn't be quick to say I'm frusterated after I lose - I always know there is a win around the corner, it's a matter of controling myself I find to be the most important. When I'm not already intoxicated, that is. :D

    I did not vote, because this option was not there - I'd say that after a gaming session, typically, doesn't matter if I won, lost or stayed at where I started - I feel exhausted and somewhat empty... if this is the right way to describe it ;)

    Rusty, I've read alot of your post in the past. May I offer my opinion? I really think you should give up gambling. Its not the slots, nor the casinos. It's YOU! And you must come to terms with this. Do yourself a big big favor and purchase gamblock. You will be glad you did. There is no reason why the internet should make you unhappy. Unless you are doing risky things. And gambling seems to be your problem. Trust me my friend, you won't be missing anything. You must have the well to quit and your first step would be to buy gamblock.

    Kind of a one sided poll. Only two positive responses out of six and those two were kinda luke warm.

    I would have voted for, insanely happy, ecstatic or even walking on clouds...

    IMO Gambling is just like anything else, if it feels good, do it.

    However, if it don't feel good, don't do it.

    I don't agree, for each negative option there is an alternative option.

    Thanks for the advice and i know you mean well, I only gamble what I can afford these Days but that does not mean I do not have the right to feel cheated and angry by consistently low returns.
    I should get more than an hours entertainment from 3 or 4 deposits low rolling.
    Tonight I gambled around $160 playing around 36c a spin average at 3 different Casinos and in all I played for less than hour.
    That is pretty pathetic.

    hey rusty, so can i check them all? i feel like a bi- polar gambler sometimes, so im gonna check all of them............ ...laurie..........great poll btw..........

    Of course you can!
    I know just what you mean and that is why I made it multiple choice.

    Thanks to all who have taken part so far :thumbsup:

    Great poll... a "other" option would be great though.. :)

    My feeling:

    good -- better -- great -- stupid..

    Translated in a session that would be:

    winning - winning more -- hitting everything -- losing all back..

    this applies more to brick and morter casinos but when i'm playing i get a rush that i cant describe. i love the atmosphere, the sounds, colors, people....going on a bender in vegas is the closest i can feel to when i was an athlete. i can tell you that nothing in my life will ever compare to scoring a goal in front of 20,000 crazed, lunatic, screaming fans but when i'm on a roll at the craps table it does the job.:)

    I look for the fun side of the casinos. Dont get me wrong i luv to have a withdraw but then who doesnt. But if i can deposit and have fun with it and in long run lost it doesnt bother me if i enjoyed the session. Few weeks back clubworld i dropped 25 in well i hit free spin after free spin that penguin game kept giving me respins. As im playing the rest of the house here had joined me we had a blast. We played in there for hours with bonus rounds free spins and the odd really sweet hit here and there. I landed playing with that deposit for over a week it kept me going and as i said it was fun. To me there is nothing worse then those dead spins back to back just takes the fun away from it all.
    If i ever got that serious about depositing and having to win that would be the end of my playing time for me its entertainment not the need to get losses back.

    First of all, great thread idea! The psychology aspect of gambling is always very interesting and underrated in my opinion.

    I have a slightly different point of view maybe than most of the contribuors thus far in this thread, since I have been gambling for living (playing online poker) for a few years already. So my personal attitude towards gambling is (and has to be) a bit different than for a person who just plays for entertainment once in a while.

    There would be a ton to discuss on this topic, but I try to keep it short and comment some of my experiences how gambling has made me feel.

    What Id like to stress, is that gambling is like using alcohol (in this feel way) - If you are a normal drinker, maybe drinking a couple of beers once-twice a week and a bit more seldom on holiday parties or so, you get used to drinking normal, (non-unhealthy) amounts and it just gives you a good feeling and lowers your stress etc. But just keep 4 months off drinking completely and then drink a couple of beers - oh my god it certainly feels different! Your tolerance has gotten lower and you feel a bit dizzy and blushing already after two beers (maybe even one)!

    This same thing applies to gambling. If you are somewhat regular gambler - well, it doesnt feel much at all if you are winning or losing. You start to get used to it (at least if you are a pro). But I personally have taken a few ~2 month breaks from playing at all and the firs times after the break when I hit the tables and I get my first huge hand getting action - oh my god, what an adrenaline rush it produces! Certainly there are same kind of characters when we compare alcohol and gambling in this way.

    We can call this phenomena with a term "humans comfort level". When you get used to something - its not that big of a deal anymore. I am sure many people have felt this same thing playing on casinos with certain bet level they are used to. Just try to raise your bet level to maybe like ~3 times to your normal level, hit a few spins and check what is happening to your heart rate - yeah, its definitely raising! Again - when we get out of our comfort zoneit makes things to happen in our brains. I think this part of evolution and human nature; like when you are in a danger, your body starts function differently - you get more focused and ready to act, your body temperature and heart rate rises etc. Its build into a human brain and body that when you leave your comfort zone, you start to feel different. Same applies to losing bigger than normal amounts when gambling. You have certain comfort zone in losing too. I think many of you fellow members can agree? You have sometime lost more than you actually had prepared to - how have you felt afterwards? Id say different than normal!


    There would be a ton to discuss on this topic, and this thread gave me an inspiration to write something more about this - I think Ill add some things about the psychological side of gambling to my few next blog entries feeling inspired from this thread. :thumbsup:

    As others have said......it depends. It depends on my mood at the time and if I'm winning or if I'm losing, several different factors come in to play, even as to why I'm gambling at that particular moment in time.

    Gambling has always made me Happy - I do get frustrated especially when someone rivers a crappy hand and cracks my As ( just happened I'm still steaming - how does anyone go all in with 3 8 :mad:) But I'm generally very happy when I'm gambling :D
