After a losing session, I remind myself this will pass.
After a winning session, I remind myself this will pass.
Then I carry on, secure in the knowledge that all of life is one long session.

I feel normal because it's normal to lose. You are supposed to lose.

It varies. I accept it's part of the game. There might be the irrational thoughts along the lines of I should have left sooner or arrived later, but I push those aside since they don't mean anything.

I've probably felt everything from sad, mad, bored, indifferent, relieved and even glad at times.

I don't feel good, but I only gamble with money I can afford to lose. So that's life!

The reason I'm even commenting now is because yesterday I walked up (staying more than six feet away) to see how the craps table was doing. I think maybe after 3 rolls and the shooter 7 outs, F Bombs loudly and slams both fists down on the table & walks away FUMING MAD! Even though I was more than 6 ft behind the shooter and friend, who never even saw me, I was blamed for the 7 out! Those 2 obviously felt really bad and should not shoot craps til they can afford it! You can tell when they put down the minimum pass line and only bet the hard ways and hops it's a recipe for a disaster!!!

PS-I'm aware of the superstitions about the shooters. That's why, trying to be courteous, I have ALWAYS stayed at least 6 ft away (even before Covid19) to evaluate a table before shooting. I will only walk up to the rail if I have decided to buy in. The table was filled with angry losers so I was going to leave anyways!

If I'm at what seems like a serious and judgmental table, I will pass my turn to shoot. However, I prefer the looser and happier tables, where you're not made to feel badly after a bad roll.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

On my sports account, the results are separated from when I bet by hours, and even if I am betting a lot, there usually aren't big swings, so that really limits any emotional connections between the wagers and the change in the money. Yesterday I noticed one had lost 13 in a row, this morning it's up to 15 in a row (with only six parlays). I though that was pretty cool. I want to see how high that can go.

I was blamed for making players "lose money" at the casino before, too.
Gamblers can be very rude.

Gamblers can also be quite nice and understanding in ways, too, that contradict how people normally make them out to be.
I guess it just depends on the person and the mood they're in, etc.

That happened to me at an E-craps table where I was the shooter.

It was one of those where you slid a digital avatar of dice across the screen. I kept throwing craps on the come out. Some guy says it's my fault and I SHOULD THROW BETTER.

To make a point on the next throw I yelled "LIKE THIS" and purposefully hit the button on the screen (I am pretty certain it's pre-determined otherwise why let you have a push button option similar to stopping a slot mid-reel.)

Those guys turned really pale like I had really sunk them now
