I have been wagering online or at real life gambling dens for a lot of years. I have been taught, the habit can acquire a hold of you and you won’t even realize it up till you are bankrupt. Specifically if you are on a winning streak. I have gone through many hundreds of dollars in only a tiny period of time and even today, I will go too far. It feels like you are only enjoying yourself up until you make a decision to pay attention to your squanderings and the anguish settles in, and then you keep advising yourself "I can earn it back" ad infinitum. It does not work. Then you feel sick to your gut and the harder you try the quicker you spend.

When you observe that you are in the black, Remain in the Black! When you start to throw away, do not tell yourself, "well only 1 more" over and over again, trust me, this method RARELY ever functions. Say you are gambling on one armed bandits, keep a number set aside before starting your action. DO NOT go over that cap, regardless of how tempting. If you happen to succeed, put that in an alternate pot. Don’t risk your payouts no matter what. After you have played through your initial set range, stop. Leave, regardless if it is on the internet or at a land based casino, do not stay around. Make sure to remember, there will be another day, another time. Obviously, this process usually will work for any game that you wager on, be it bingo, poker, video poker, keno, vingt-et-un or any other casino game.

Keep in mind, betting is supposed to be FUN not demanding, nauseating work! If you are not enjoying yourself, you do not belong there. If you can’t manage the loss, do not even start.
