I have been betting online or at real life gambling halls for a lot of years. I have learned, the craving can take a hold of you and you won’t even notice it till you are beaten. Notably if you are on a run. I have been through many tens of thousands of dollars in a very short period of time and even today, I sometimes go too long. It feels like you are just having a blast till you decide to pay attention to your losses and the anguish settles in, and then you keep advising yourself "I will be able to gain it back" ad infinitum. It doesn’t work. Then you feel sick to your gut and the more you try the quicker you throw away.

When you find that you are up, Remain on the UP! When you start to fritter away, don’t tell yourself, "well just one more" and again and again, trust me, this scheme barely ever functions. Say you are betting on slots, have a number separate before starting your wagering. DON’T exceed that threshold, regardless of how tempting. If you happen to succeed, put that in a separate cup. Don’t bet your profits at any cost. After you have gambled through your initial set limit, stop. Back off, regardless if it’s on the internet or in a land based casino, do not stay around. Make sure to remember, there will be another day, another time. Obviously, this plan can work for any game that you gamble on, be it bingo, poker, electronic poker, keno, twenty-one or any other game.

Keep in mind, wagering should be entertaining not burdensome, nauseating work! If you aren’t enjoying yourself, you do not belong at the casinos. If you cannot manage the loss, do not even start.
