Yep, stay strong everyone. I love to gamble, heck it's in my blood...being from Vegas and all. However, I just had enough. I was also heavily addicted to it at one point in time. Mostly when I first started playing online. I would play alll day, spend money I didn't have, and that was the worst.
I have alot of responsibilities, and I was slacking off. I wasn't taking care of business the way I should have.
Anyways, I got to a point where I said enough is enough. I don't have very much extra money, and what I do have, I feel I could do better things with it instead of throwing it away gambling.
Now, with that said, I enjoy playing just as much as the next guy still, but I don't let it get ahold on me like it used to. If I am lucky I will have an extra $20 to play now and then, and when that's done..I am done playing. I will still play at tourneys and free chips...
I just feel alot of it also has to do with more and more casinos going bad. Reputable casinos being sold to rogue companies, payouts taking months, etc etc. There aren't that many casinos you can trust anymore. I think that helped with the decision to slow down my depositing.
I also think LCB helps my urge to play too...Silly as it seems, since this is afterall a GAMBLING forum
. I keep myself busy, by reading and posting, and getting to know people on here, and that keeps my mind off of playing.
So just stay strong, and if you really want to quit, you can do it. There is alot of support here at LCB.
Good for you bonusroundplease, that is awesome. Just remember that feeling you have now, knowing that you can overcome those thoughts of spending money you can't afford to lose.
WTG on that fantastic cashout too!!!!
