Rockbet Review

Hi Gang:

Gambling is such a part of my life. I have clothes, lighters, jewelry, and trinkets including keychains that direct someone to the fact I am a gambler.

One question I am asked alot when people find out I am a gambler is "Am I a compulsive gambler?" Has this happened to anyone else? I can't share with you the times people have tried to save me, slipping me the Gamblers Anonymous website address or their 1800 number.

Why is it that regardless of how you gamble it must be a problem? When did this instant stereo-typing take place?

As I have mentioned before, I consider myself a disaplined gambler. Yet, I gave up a long time ago trying to explain this to people. Again, if your a gambler, you must be hopelessly addicited.

I have read all the warning signs and I actually can answer yes to some of them. For example, "Do you think about gambling all the time?" Yes. "Did you ever gamble longer than you planned?" Again, its a Yes. Yet I do not feel I am a hopeless addict out of control for the few hours a day, I enjoy my hobby. As a side note, I have often slept longer than I planned, does this make me a sleep addict?

What is it exactly that makes society look down on us for enjoying gambling? I suppose if we were all constant winners no one would complain. Yet, tell me this, what else in life is a constant win win situation. Everyone comes out a loser in one situation or another.

I guess my point would be you can still answer yes to some of those "questions" and still be a disaplined gambler. I take breaks from my gambling. Usually do my depositing earlier in the month and then just get by on freebies till a new month comes along. I watch what I spend, and keep a tally of wins and losses, and where I go. I don't gamble out of stress or a escape from reality reasoning. I take a step back and check myself often as I want to remain a disaplined gambler and not fall trap to the ill effects gambling can have on some.

I will continue to enjoy gambling.I will not show shame when people discover I am one. By the way, how do I answer people when they ask me if I am a cumpulsive gambler? I say...." nah, I just like the food at the buffet. (wink)

Till next time:

PMM

Gambling can be an addiction and if you think you are a compulsive gambler you should seek out professional help.
