I am officially retiring from online gaming. There comes a time and I am sure most of you will know what I am talking about when it really loses its fun, its not about winning anymore but the rush of it all. I am not a religious person but have been blessed in life with a phenomenal career and a great supporting cast of family and friends, gambling in my life has alienated the most important things to me and that is just wrong, saying that I bid you all adieu and wish everybody happiness and great health!!

Always good to see someone in control of their actions and for the right reasons.

Whilst your participation will be missed, I wish you all the best for the future.

The pull is great, but if you've made your mind up.....forget them!


I did break down and play my managers bonus from Inet, $5, cashed out my allowed $50 and ran, thanks Inet. I have decided to now delete before opening all the emails. It really is amazing how fast common sense and clarity come back when you abstain, in a short time life seems to feel much better, have to make sure it stays this way.

Its unbelieveable how many "begging" emails come when you dont deposit at a casino for a period of time. A guy i chat to a lot as part of my work closed an acct he had with a well known uk betting firm and stated in it he had severe financial hardships and this was the reason he was closing his acct and wanted it to remain closed forever.Now within 2-3 days of this he started not only recieving royal mail post telling him about loans . remortgages etc but telephone cals at home which he had never previously had..COINCIDENCE? Thiis type of thing really annoys me and even unsubscribing in most cases dosent work..what also annoys me is that you can self exclude for a maximum 6 months in most sites <not all> but if u have a gambling problem now it aint gonna go away in 6 months so why not just make it a permanent ban? anyhow my rant over ..good luck and all the best...

My problem wasnt that I was spending every waking moment gambling, it was however in the last little while changing my tendencies which was a warning sign for me, I have not been craving gambling, I have found that I am far more productive not playing, it does have a way of clouding your mind, anyway I would agree to the chronic gambler to permanently close all accounts. I did explore many avenues if it was going to be a problem for me, thankfully I haven't had to use any, if I did have to it is definitely an all or nothing proposition.

That was a good testimony there that you made back on Sep. 2nd and I commend you for it but here it is now eight days later and you have already backslid by playing a free bonus from INetbet and for whatever reason still hanging out in here at Casinomeister a lot...don't take this the wrong way but I have been around here for almost five years now and have seen posts and threads one after the other where a player comes on and starts a thread or makes a post saying that they are done and quitting gambling and bidding everyone a farewell and they still stick around here like a drunk hanging out in the parking lot of a liquor store...not that that analogy represents you me_and_ed, but I think you see what I mean...

I'm just saying that if you really want to quit the whole scene and really bid everyone a farewell then you have to sever ALL TIES with anything gambling related, even Casinomeister, even though we all love it here, it has to be let go of also, or your withdrawal will linger on and on until you are totally back in the entire mix again, we all, I'm sure hate to see you go but if you are really serious about quitting then there is no other way except "Cold Turkey"...whatever you decide is fine with me either way, would miss your posts around here but I know deep down that it would be the best thing for you, that is, if you really are serious about quitting...at any rate good luck to you !! :thumbsup:

Judge, jury and executioners. I happen to enjoy the forum, my quitting was not from a dire situation, it was a choice, as for free money, well its free, sue me.
