just wondering how I can get my forum account closed?
its probably now when I decided I can gamble no longer... its just horrid.
In years on gambling there has been lots of ups and downs, but mainly downs, I have never won anything big at all but its always whatever I win I throw back in and more.
Although there have been many cutdowns its just been a wakeup call to me on how evil gambling really is.
I did mention in the teething on reversing withdrawl thread how yesterday my gambling day was horrid. Lost money again on UK £70 jackpot machines, then had a gamble online... thinking I was sorted with $266 cashed out ($166 profit) I swiftly posted there and tried to hold on until the reverse time had gone...
3 hours until my withdrawl cant be reversed and what do I do? I reverse it and lose the entire lot.
Then I play elsewhere with another $150 of my cash and wham, lost it all.
So not only have I lost $416 in about 15 mins (at max) but my loss from the fruit machines yesterday come back into a loss (and money I spent on a taxi home due to missing the last bus because I was playing the machines) which makes my total losses for just 2 days be nearly $600 (around £400 ). What have I actually got to show for that? nothing except a few crappy comp points to the value of $3
Just imagine what it would take to win that money playing at a casino... either 1 high bet that has an extreme amount of luck or tactically playing for more than 10 hours and slowly reaching that amount.
I cant even see a point of waiting around and only playing the "no deposit" bonuses because they do make you want to play with your own cash.
If I lose with a ND bonus, I may be tempted to deposit but I can refrain myself from doing so... If I win then usually I will cash it out and put ALL of it (and some of my own cash) back into the casino which too often results in a loss.
Im just trying now to justify it to myself with partial facts. Fair enough I could of had £240 more in the bank if I hadnt done this stupid thing... But as most of us know... "gambling money" is never really our money. People dont just win money and stop gambling... They may win a nice chunk once but then possibly over the next 3-4 months they will put all of that back in gradually bit by bit.
This could make it a wakeup call for me, instead of the $25 a week or 2 put into online casinos I can just stop, put the money in a savings account and then after 6 months i have "won" a big chunk of cash.
Im actually feeling a bit better now about it because as I mention above I know full well that money wouldnt of been mine for long. It would of stayed in the bank for a few weeks and gradually been eaten away at with deposits.
So yea, I do think its the time everything gambling related was removed from my life, casinos, arcades and forums and that I just start a fresh with my own money being spent on things for myself.
It was nice to of been here and meet a lot of people... Good Luck!!!
