Rather than quit, why not just play on paper until you hone your skills? Once you get to the point where your predictions are accurate on a consistent (or semi-consistent) basis, you can begin playing again, using the money you've saved by not buying losing tickets.
Many members have suggested checking the prediction pages. That's good advice, and will give you a solid foundation to build on. It could be that you're looking at things too closely, or that you're not noticing certain trends, which are present in every game at times. Playing on paper will allow you to analyze your chosen game objectively, without the pressure of having money involved. Then, when you spot something of value, you can exploit it and make a small wager.
You have all the support you need here. Why throw the baby out with the bath water (unless it's a really ugly baby)?
Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...
