Why do people gamble? I have heard a variety of answers:
For fun, taking the chance to win some or even a lot of money,
to run away and forget about problems for just a little while
and because they are lonely.
People go to gamble because they either feel lucky or hope to be lucky.
Why do you gamble? And more, are you honest with yourself when you gamble?
We tend to use these two words interchangeably, as in,
“I want to win” or “I desire to win”.
“I want/desire to be happy.”
Same thing, right? But what is your mental state when you use these words?
Where is your attention? Are you even aware that you are underlining something that is NOT happening in your life?
(the word “want” literally means “lack” or “to be without”)
Gambling is labelled as an addiction along with drinking, using drugs and smoking
Yet casinos encourage people to gamble.
I do want you to have free will to gamble. Do it with your head.
Be in charge.
Create the image of success in your mind before you even log on to a casino.
“Positive Thinking” is the popular term. However, that does not mean mouthing a lot of cheerful sentences, such as, “Everything is going to be all right.”
Everything will not be all right until you achieve a conscious awareness of that it IS allright. A lot of so-called positive thinking is little more than wishful thinking, voicing many words that you really don’t believe.
If that is the case, it will not WORK for you! Then you are wasting your time and money.
Play within your budget.
Set aside an amount that you can afford to spend.
Do not play with money that you set aside for paying your accounts.

Yes, you heard me. Walk away.
Switch to playing for fun for awhile if you really need to play.
You will receive the same kick than playing for real money, even if in
