Only make bets that you know you can win...

For example:

If someone said "I bet you 100BTC that Peyton Manning will be the Suberbowl MVP on Sunday", then you take it as long as these conditions apply:

1) you own a high quality rifle
2) can get a good enough vantage point to take him out when he gets off the bus (pre-game)
3) you are okay with killing the face of Papa John's Pizza

Bonus:  You could probably extort Pete Carroll for extra money if you can somehow pin this on the Seahawks organization.

Summation:  Don't fucking gamble unless you are okay with losing everything you own and/or killing Peyton Manning.

Now you know how it feels to lose almost everything.

Its that feeling where you never want to feel again.

You shouldn't gamble at all if you don't want to lose it's almost set in stone that you will lose eventually.

But people still do ..... lose, then come back for me, "to get the money back". Sad

You have learnt. You have learnt you can't control your gambling habits. A very valuable lesson, unless you just pretend it never happened, in which case it will very likely re-occur in your future.

Sorry for your loss, you learned the hard way. Don't worry about it it's just money.

Some of my buddies in college would take their student loan money and play blackjack at the Indian Casinos.  That never worked out well for them either...

Shame they didn't learn how to count cards first Smiley Unless that doesn't work anymore. I'm not up to date on the latest "how to get an edge on casinos" playbook.

The next time you might get the itch to gamble just go out shopping and buy something nice for yourself as a reward for not gambling.

If that does not work download a piece of gambling software that has real casino odds... Play for 4 hours and realize you lost it all... And then figure out why the maths are stacked on the casino's side.

If that does not work... Well.. You will have to learn the hard way.

What a funny thing that you talk about gambling and saying how bad it is and at the same time you have those online casinos adverts in your signatures Cheesy

As others have said, consider this a life lesson and the tuition was cheap. If it takes you a lifetime to re-learn this lesson it will be costly.

You're young, mistakes are part of the deal.

Sometimes there's more truth in forums than anywhere else.  Twitter:  @cryptobitchicks   "I am expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously. To which are you referring?"

Well, it's only a life lesson if he learns from it. Unfortunately if he is addicted then this probably wont be the last of it.
