Clearly as someone said on the first page- you have a problem and should not gamble

Hmm. Not sure about that. Krava said he only plays with money set aside just for gambling. A problem gambler plays with money they need.

It was suppose to be $50 max but I lost $200...I need to take a break from this because of losing control...I was chasing my money trying to just win some of it back...Hell I had a $45 ticket cashout tito in my wallet I went to go and cash it out and leave and ended up sticking it in a machine and losing it all...That sounds like a start of a problem so I need to fix that. I have no idea what came over me.

Watching people gives me an idea if it is worth it or not.

Not unless you have some special inside information or something like that. It's obvious that you don't, or you would not be taking about it, and you would have more than 70k or whatever you claim to have. If you do have 70k, I suggest you learn how to advantage Play as a hobby or do something worth while that you enjoy. If you keep messing with slots you will seriously regret it one day. One day will come sooner than you think. It's a slippery slope, wize up or get out while you can.

Most of my bigger wins have come on the first $20 that I put in the machine. I was wondering if some people are like that also or most of the other people took awhile? My biggest win $1750 came when I put $220 into the $5 double top dollar. I still had credits left after I cashed out. I think I had 13 or so left. That is still pretty quick considering $10 a spin. I so miss playing that but it is so dangerous to play. I lost $400 driving 4 hours to caushatta to play. 20-30 min and never a bonus.




Of course! You put more first 20's in a machine than 2nd or third, etc, unless you never quit after one 20.

I went to this website: http://www.gamblersanonymous.org/ga/content/20-questions

Only checked off 1. Ever felt remorse after gambling. I believe that everyone has felt that especially if they lost. The only other possible one would be ever felt like you should return as fast as possible to win back what you lost. I am able to accept losses. I was down the other day $140 (if you count the $20 in the machine). I hit bar bar bar for $20 and then few spins later hit double double bar bar for $80 and it was at 108 credits. I got off the machine and walked out -32. I went in there to try to get up by $50. If I was up by $40 I would have walked out. I put the $10 free play thing in and $0. Put $20 into the same machine $0. Went to other machines didn't get anything and several machines $0 for the whole $20. My thoughts were, I will hopefully get lucky the next time I come back. Most people can't walk out just winning a little money, some people can't walk out when they are losing. I try a little bit to see what is going on and then if it doesn't work out then I leave. Also I don't play with money that is "mine". Technically money that I won is already mine. Maybe I should use another word. Maybe money I already have won? If I am not currently ahead with the casino in money I won, I won't go. Alot of this is for fun too. Sometimes it is nerve racking etc.

The people who feel remorse after gambling are the ones playing with money they shouldn't be and losing it. A woman told me that she stuck her rent money in a slot machine and lost it. She was crying,"That was my rent money I lost! I am screwed for this momth!" You have screwed up priorities if you risk not having your rent payed for a month just so you can go play a slot machine!

I won $25 at a casino once

Got a haircut. This was after reading kentry's haircut fiasco so I thought it was funny.
