First to clarify the reason I wrote this essay. I have been wagering on the net or at land based betting houses for many years. I have discovered, the dependency can grab a hold of you and you will not even notice it up until you are broke. Particularly if you’re on a winning run. I’ve gone through many thousands of dollars in only a tiny amount of time and to this day on occasion, I will go a bit too far. It seems you are just having a blast until you decide to be aware of your losses and the guilt settles in, and then you continue to tell yourself "I can win it back" repeatedly. It doesn’t works. Then you feel queasy in your stomach and the more you try the faster you are deprived.

When you see that you’re ahead, STAY on the UP! When you begin to lose, do not tell yourself, "well just maybe just one more" and again and again, trust me, this concept RARELY ever works. Say you’re betting on slot games, have a bankroll set aside prior to beginning your action. DO NOT go over that boundary, regardless how tempting. If you happen to succeed, put that in a separate pot. Do not risk your successes no matter what. Once you have gone through your primary set limit, stop. Leave, regardless if it’s on the web or at a brick and mortar betting house, do not stick around. Always remember, there is going to be another day, another time.

Remember, betting is supposed to be FUN not exhausting, sickening work! If you aren’t having fun yourself, you do not belong there. If youcan not afford the loss, don’t even start.
