First to explain why I write this article. I have been betting on the web or at land-based betting houses for many years. I have learned, the addiction can grab a hold of you and you won’t even notice it up until you are flat broke. Particularly if you’re on a winning streak. I’ve gone through many thousands of dollars in only a tiny period of time and to this day on occasion, I will go too far. It seems you are just having fun until you decide to be aware of your defeats and the guilt sets in, and then you continue to tell yourself "I can win it back" constantly. It doesn’t works. Then you become sick in your stomach and the harder you try the quicker you are deprived.

When you notice that you are up, STAY on the UP! When you begin to lose, don’t say to yourself, "well perhaps just one more" and again and again, believe me, this plan almost never ever operates. Say you are betting on slots, have a bankroll set aside prior to starting your action. Don’t go over that limit, no matter how tempting. If you happen to succeed, put that in a different cup. Don’t use your winnings no matter what. Once you’ve played through your primary set limit, call it a day. Leave, whether it is on the net or at a land based casino, don’t stay around. Always remember, there is going to be another day, another time.

Keep in mind, betting should be FUN not backbreaking, nauseating work! If you aren’t enjoying yourself, you don’t belong there. If youcannot afford the loss, don’t even begin.
