Well, i am quitting the lottery business for good because it nearly destroyed me and it is in my best interest to leave it alone for good. It was just going too far and causing me to neglect everything and everyone that was important to me and i guess i can say i was consumed by it. To mske matters worse i discovered that i spent 25000.00 on numbers alone during a 6-8 week period and if that aint bad i don't know what is.  i had to make some extremely difficult decisions to curb my habit and i am literally finished and right now . When u get to the point where u eat, sleep, and breathe numbers u have a problem and i do. I am too young to throw my life away. Winning is good, but when u can win 32000.  and spend 30000 of it back in a matter of weeks its not good. I hope that everyone has lots of luck and play in moderation and i enjoyed meeting and talking to u guys but i have to pick up the pieces of my life and start over.

 

please play in moderation!!!

                  Last time I was in Lost Vegas I won $45 at the blackjack table.  I promptly left the table, walked down the street and bought an XF 1867 three-cent piece with the money.  That was in 1982.  I haven't been back to that city since.  I left a winner.  LUCKYCHICK80, you are a winner!

                          I suppose this is the lesson that ANYONE who engages in gambling must learn.  And better to learn BEFORE you start playing.

                          The lottery should be played as a means of entertainment, not obsession and not because someone NEEDS money.  All funds spent should be money that is disposable, not money for food or shelter.

                          That being said, if you ENJOY playing the lottery, and you're quitting because you don't want to spend the money, Lottery Post has ways to "stay in the game" (continuing the entertainment value of it), while not spending a dime!

                          Just keep working your numbers and posting them on the predictions board.  Play it as a game to see how high you can drive your stats.  Work the numbers for a REASONABLE amount of time, and since you don't have any money in the game, don't worry if you don't have time to work the numbers on a particular day.

                          Most of all, have fun with the lottery - use the parts of Lottery Post that let you continue having fun without spending money!

                              I am so sorry Lucky.  I do hope that you can quit and stay away.  Accept the support of your family & remember that they are what's most important to you & you are what's most important to them.

                              Don't look back! 

                               

                              My prayers are with you
