It's not that simple and everyone is different. There's many different reasons people get addicted. There's people who lived happy normal lives people who never took drugs or had depression or emotional problems. Suddenly they get into a car accident and are prescribed drugs and become addicted. Happy teens just having fun drinking consistently can become addicted. They may not have even wanted to drink or do drugs for any reason other than pure pressure.
Apparently for some people, just experimenting with drugs they can quickly become addicted.
JD:"Every session is a new session." <<<And that's what gets people in trouble in the first place. This is all betting system stop win/stop loss gambler's fallacy type talk. It's all just one big long session. The quicker people understand that the better off hey will be. New days, new sessions or whatever is just a state of mind and a way to trick yourself.Quote: JoelDeze
3. You control your target stop playing point (by setting a target win amount and a target loss amount). When you hit either, stop playing.
Every session is a new session.
Every time you want to go gambling, play with your slot machine piggy bank In the end, you will be a winner.
Okay, it's time to turn this thread back to the OP's original dilemma. OP, why not take a small break from gambling for a about a month and then sporadically gamble, like once every week with a very limited bankroll like say, $20, win or lose? And when the $20 is gone, you go home?
