    I have been losing way too much. The value of money is something I am losing respect for and I'm quitting til at least football season. This is a hobby that can be really fun if you can stay in control and use spending money to gamble on the weekends, but when you start doing it everyday to chase your losses it can get to be a bit too much.

    I'm gonna read, try to be a better steward of my time, and exercise my right as a man to have dominion over the things of my day. Still on the forum, not closing any accounts. But as a person who has struggled with addiction in a lot of areas I'm trying to be objective. Thx

    Even if the casinos offer you a free chip you may try to resist the temptation lest you feel the urge to deposit your own money.

    To be honest, it's not a good idea to read gambling forums, either...especially one's with threads entitled, 'Winning Screenshots'.;)..it just fuels the 'fire'.

    Thx, Secret, however, I have made up my mind that I'm not gonna gamble til September, it's not really a matter of temptation. Gambling is a lot of fun and I look forward to football season after a couple of refreshing months off. I have not hit rock bottom and I have plenty of money, at least for a poor person, lol. I just think one of the attributes of a mature man or person is to exercise discipline in certain areas he might be presently having doubts about.

    Gambling, the gambling industry, is something that will always fascinate even if I'm not gambling. I made this post as an example that it's healthy to take a break without being in the basement, and still have healthy relationships with folks that may partake in things I don't presently partake in.

    Well, said.

    I hope you didn't take offense in my post. It seems that you do have a different agenda, rather than quitting because of an addiction..to rather enhance your life, than sitting infront of a screen and gamble.

    I could learn from you.

    Hmmmmm, (me thinks, I could do this, too)

    'Discipline', has been a foreign word to me for the longest time....thanks.:cool:

    Lol, no way did I take offense. I just wanna take a break so maybe I can come back in the fall and enjoy some weekend betting. I will be glad I did.

    I have been sober from drugs and alcohol for 7 or 8 years (I don't even know, lol). That is an area I respect too much to say, "I can drink sometimes". I might be able to but refuse to take that chance. Life is good enough sober and I will not take the risk. Gambling is newer to me and I have learned too many lessons from past addictions. I commit to a couple of months off to do other things I love and at the same time am under no obligation to log in to another casino, it's a liberty we all could exercise if we wanted.

    Excellent post!

    We do have choices. We don't HAVE to drink or gamble (or anything else) today.

    Freedom, is all any of us want.

    Thanks for your post.
