If you enjoy a cocktail occasionally, leave your cash at home if you are going to do your drinking in a casino. I’m serious. Clean out your pocketbook, your billfold, and keep all money, charge cards and cheques out of the casino. Take only the money you expect to use on beverages, tipping and only the pocket change you anticipate to lose and keep the rest behind.

Contemptuous? Not by any means. Just realistic. You could have a success after a intoxicated evening out with your friends and be lucky sufficiently to catch a marathon roll at a on fire craps table. Keep that account seeing that it’s as short-lived as it gets if you regularly drink and gamble. These activities just do not go well together.

Keeping your moolah back at the hotel is a little bit excessive, but precautionary measures for drastic behavior is required. If you gamble to win, then don’t drink and gamble. If you are able to afford to be wasteful with your cash nary a concern, then consume all the complimentary booze you can handle, but do not take credit cards and chequebooks to toss into the mix of chasing losses after your dead drunk brain squanders everything!

Permit me to take this 1 step further. Don’t drink and then go online to wager in your best-liked internet casino either. I enjoy a cocktail from the comfort of my condominium, but seeing that I am linked up through Neteller, Firepay and keep plastic credit at my fingertips, I can’t consume alcohol and wager.

How come? Even though I don’t drink alcohol to excess, once I drink alcohol, it’s clearly enough to cloud my better judgment. I wager, so I don’t drink when gambling. If you are a drinker, don’t gamble when you do. The two mix up for an awful, and expensive, cocktail.
