If you're gambling you're basically paying for entertainment..... You shouldn't expect anything back(as saying goes, hope for the best, expect the worst), but if you do, congratulations.

Gambling's all about the thrill.... You cant really get that sort of feeling elsewhere. Just go out and enjoy yourself while your balance is still non-0.00000000.

Gambling is always a risk and you need to understand it. If you have enough bitcoins and you don't worry to lose some, it can be fun. Gambling is not risky if you can strength to stop when you start loosing money. Anyway don't lose you head when you gambling

it seems both of your statements contradict each other ,i would say that most of the people in gambling are into it to win something big.
however many people enjoy it while losing .

I don't think I've ever seen someone actually enjoy losing - there are people who are less upset by it - but actually enjoying losing is a different story.

If you're gambling you're basically paying for entertainment..... You shouldn't expect anything back(as saying goes, hope for the best, expect the worst), but if you do, congratulations.

In the select scenario where you're doing it purely for the profit - then you should definitely expect to make a profit otherwise you'd need to go back and reconsider your strategy. For example, in poker if you're already making steady earnings from smaller stakes tables and moved up to higher stakes and you start losing/earning less you'd definitely want to reconsider.

No one enjoys loosing, the thing that some people enjoy even if they loose is that they played and had a jolly time with what they could afford to loose. This can be seen very often in poker, there are many people who play a lot of poker for just the sake of playing it and not for winning and getting rich. Fun while gambling makes it enjoyable, loosing doesn't.

Some People prefer the emotions of losing or excitement on losing they enjoy it that way, but I think most of the time people are angry when they lose, that is the common emotion you will feel when you lose money!

Yes, most people want to win. But most people lose in gambling. They will enjoy the time spent on gambling.

Something like 95% of gamblers are in minus rather than +. IMO, the smartest thing is to just not bet/play other games for money, unless u 100% know what u doing.

Even if you know what you are doing the house still has an edge, and its tough to be math.  Math pretty much states you will lose.  Granted a few people might get extraordinary lucky and win over the course of a long time but it is few and far between.

Yes every gambler knows this fact but still they want to try their luck. Some people even after losing all their money still borrow to gamble that is the worst part.

Good advice, just think that you're paying for entertainment when you bet on some sportbooks.
And this habit work for all type of gambling too.

Who enjoy of losing, all of them gambled because they want to win. There is no one that want to lose, rich people dont matter if they lose and poor people will have matter when lose but both of these people are really like to win rather than losing. So there is no one satisfied with their lose

This is really funny. You enjoy your loss. To tell the truth (according to you post) you mostly loss and sometime win. You have fun when you win even when, most of times you lose. Good way to enjoy things. For more, you enjoy even because you are addicted by gambling.

You need urgently to do two things (to enjoy more after). To find a good doctor to take away this your addiction and to find someone which can be able to not leave money in your hands for at least 2 years. In order that don't gain again the same addiction. During this time, this person must show you that in the world exist to many other things which can be enjoyed much more than the gambling.

For example have you tried to stay and make love with a beautiful or even normal girl?

there is a hell of difference between my words and yours, enjoy while losing leads to having a good time and just enjoying the moment by leaving every decision on your luck,being less money hungry and giving some time to emotions .
i personally enjoyed the moment after losing some hundreds $ over roulette,chilling with ma friends.
enjoying losses is a different story..

Yes, that is a different story.
Still enjoy and have fun when lost and "enjoying losses and play stupidly"

No one will hope for lose when their gambling. But Not Many people who can keep enjoy and have fun after he lost.

Well, you cant leave everything always to luck. You cannot leave things to luck and go all in when you have a 2 & 3 in poker and you've seen the river and you don't even have a pair. That's called stupidity, I've seen people betting big when they are sure of loosing.

FYI - There are certain various situations when going all in on the river with air is the correct play and not considered stupidity.  Wink

If you don't know what those certain various situations are, well...
