First to explain the reason I wrote this article. I have been gambling online or at land based betting houses for a great many years. I have discovered, the dependency can take a hold of you and you won’t even realize it up until you are flat broke. Particularly if you’re on a winning run. I have gone through countless thousands of dollars in only a short period of time and to this day on occasion, I’ll go a bit too far. It seems you are just having a blast until you decide to pay attention to your loss and the anguish sets in, and then you continue to tell yourself "I can win it back" repeatedly. It never works. Then you feel queasy in your belly and the more you try the quicker you lose.

When you see that you are ahead, remain on the UP! When you begin to lose, don’t say to yourself, "well just maybe one more" and again and again, believe me, this concept RARELY ever works. Say you’re playing on slots, have a bankroll set to the side prior to starting your play. DO NOT go over that limit, regardless how tempting. If you actually win, put that in a separate cup. Don’t risk your wins no matter what. As soon as you’ve gone through your original set limit, call it a day. Leave, regardless if it is online or at a land-based casino, do not stay around. Always remember, there will be another day, another time.

Keep in mind, gambling should be FUN not backbreaking, nauseating work! If you aren’t having fun yourself, you do not belong there. If youcan’t manage the cost, don’t even start.
