i know goes without saying i had my chance and was too greedy so lost it.

We've all been there. Did a similar thing in Monaco a few years ago! Live and learn and I always look at it as I never had the money so I;m no worse off.

thats gambling for you...i play fruit machines myself...but i play for the enjoyment....

And that my friend, is why bookies and the like, never lose.

Trouble being you never know when winning streak's going to end, always best to bank chunks of money and play with the loose in future,
Still worth a tenner for the adrenalin rush, imo.

nah dont feel sorry for me i have just proved to myself how much of an idiot i can be.

You just can't look at it as what you could have had" else you could have cashed it it, put it into sports arbitrage and doubled it, then again, again and again and you could have been into the thosands.

Just have to count yourself lucky you didn;t have a second go and end up losing money! Easily done.

Or euro millions heh I won £5.40 last week on a £1 ticket
I don't gamble with large amounts of money because as SS* says only the sites that win! no one else unless you know when to stop.

is jackpot joy any good then? Does it accept paypal? I've been using my earnings in paypal account and using it is william hill casino. Haven't done too bad :-)

I went to Bingo on Monday night, because it was a bank holiday they were giving out vouchers for £10 free online.

So I played it on Monday night when I got home, the first £1.50 of my bonus won me £135, I withdrew it cos I know what woulda happened if I didnt.

too be honest it isnt worth going near you lose more than you win but my look was in today and i just got way too greedy and lost it i always only put £10 on ive had it 3 times where i have won £50 and it draws you back but you could end up losing alot just like me.

good on you lol you have more brains than me.

ahhh I have done that, not as much £££. Once you win you want to win more and more.
Try not to think about it, hard I know

You think that's bad, I know someone that has lost £10,000's over the last few years and completely ruined there business because they stopped taking clients etc to concentrate on winning.

This person recenlty won £3,800 and they lost all but £1,500 of it because they thought they could win more.

I told them there's only one winner on these sites and has easily made an overall loss of more than £20,000 but could be mcuh much more and not to mention there business in the process too.

was it deal or no deal slots?

Yep, I called someone for help to stop this person from gambling and they told me throughout the process, they lost their home, his wife and kids left him, all his friends and a lucrative job...all because he couldn't stop gambling and started using the bills and even friends money to keep up his gambling addicts.

In my opinion, gambling is as evil as Crack and they should put in restrictions to prevent people gambling beyond there means.

sounds similar to me but i told every one i knew asked for there help and everyone gave it after asking and none of them knew even my wife i was lucky i never lost everything but i realised i was getting close so i came clean 10 months of not gambling and the thing i miss the most is playing the lottery ( something i never really did lol) if anyone has problems with it or needs advise on what to do pm me and i will try and help or point you in the right direction for meetings and such like

What if that person believes they don't have a problem and is reluctant to do anything about it and is will to push away everything dear to them because they believe there gamble will pay off?

They're not just gambling money...they're gambling everything. :oops:

i won 60quid off £2.50 by guessing the right score last night!

greyparrot how much did you start with? because unless you actually withdraw it you could say you never really had it it was there to be gambled!

Easier said than done...her son quit smoking providing she gave up gambling but she soon started gambling on the sly because they believe they can "feel" they're ready to win big and change their lives forever. :oops:

Congrats on quitting for your family, I know that must of been hard but it shows that your family meant more to you than a hunch/hope that you'd win...I know it must of been hard but you realised your mistakes before it was too late. :thumbsup:
