    I'm in the process of doing all of that and much more with the p3 and p4 lottory games alone...who says you need a sudden windfall to make a fortune doing what you love to do

        I would not even do half those things, and still be very happy. Infinite financial freedom would be enough alone. That and a big house full of gadgets and a few cars, and I will be in paradise.

                  I watched an interview of 5 successful self-made millionaires.  All 5 were businessmen, not athletes, entertainers, lottery winners, etc. 

                  Of the 5, 4 were in business attire.  The 5th looked like the hermit from some mountain top.

                  The question was, "When did you realize you were successful?"

                  The first 4 gave rather boring, if not predictable answers...

                  "When I had more than 100 employees."

                  "When I was debt free."

                  Blah, blah, blah.

                  Then the 5th fellow, a pretty quiet one who had already given some pretty strange answers said, "I was successful when I could eat when I was hungry, and sleep when I was tired." 

                  Man, that just blew the others people away.

                  They had become successful, but at what price?

                  I recall one of them complaining about the hours, another about labor issues.

                  I think I only need two reasons to win the lotto...  You guessed it, eat when I'm hungry and sleep when I'm tired.

                    I do like the idea of buying a new house once the old one gets messy!

                    But I'd clean up the old one by hiring an implosion company to blow it up!

                      One thing i'll love to do: HIre Professors, expert in Math, Probability, statistics to teach me classes...Sort of like your one private school in your own home...I prefer that than going to a college...Because you can ask all the questions you want and you can take your time...

                        It's a secret thatz not eazy to keep, but I know i have to for privacy concerns. People think that I'm into the drug business or something when I tell them I have a second source of income lol. driving to work at my local subway in a brand new stang will make people wonder.

                        Eh, it's fun to keep them guessing...no one could ever guess I gamble, let alone make money from it.

                        I did have some ice cream cake today...the best stuff on earth!

                          Pay off all the bills of my relatives..

                          Help children in need...

                          First reason: BIG mistake.

                           

                          It's been proven from past winners that have done this that all the relatives will do, in turn, is go run up even MORE bills, and come cryin' to you for even MORE money........ and split the family apart when you don't give it.

                          It's not the money - it's the principal of self-restraint.

                           

                          The ONLY thing I would even consider doing is telling my siblings: 'You have one week to tell me the payoff amount for your mortgage, and who to pay, and *I* will send a certified check to pay it off'.

                            If you spend money like that no matter what you win your happiness will be short lived.  Your recipe for spending your winnings is a sure fire way to end up panhandling on street corner.

                            I think a sure fire way to give your spending longevity is contained in reason 23 which you did not post.

                            Reason 23  You have money to invest and should  at least 60% of your winnings in interest bearing somethings. Oh and don't forget to pay your taxes.  I hear taxes are a tough go in the UK.  After you do that you can reallly start talking about success and give David Dickinson a run for his money.
