    You know it is funny I was thinking of a poll (which I think has been done before) of how long can you go without checking in on the LP forums. My answer would be less than a day. But as far as lottoholism goes, rehab. #1 reason: I am absolutely convinced that the day I don't play one of my regulars it will drop. #2 reason: When I do hit, small or large, it feeds the fever.  LOL jarasan

    P.S. Think 7394. More cowbell.White Bounce

        I actually voted that I have it under control, but after reading the posts on the second page...I think I am a bit of a lottoholic.  There are highway and street route markers that I always note as numbers to put together in combos (i.e. Highway 237 gives me 23 and 37 or Highway 55 at exit 347 gives me 34, 47, and 55).  It always kills me to pass a single number route marker, like route 22 and 22 was one of the numbers that rolled in the recent MM/PB drawing.  But the reason I thought I had it under control is that I always change my numbers each draw whereas a true junkie stays with the same junk (have you ever known a crack, heroin, or meth addict to say I think I'll get a hit of MJ tomorrow...no they crave the same poison day in and day out...PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT...just say NO to drugs...now that is truly a waste of money and life!).  I also don't play pick 3 or pick 4 or even daily little lotto 5 games (unless the lotto 5 jackpot is over $350,000) so in that way I am not like a lotto junkie.  But like a lotto junkie, when I put my numbers in for every PB/MM and big lotto jackpot drawing, I am on a dream-like high, and I used to come crashing down when my numbers didn't match to win the jackpot.  Now I hope to win, but I am not crushed when I don't.  But let the PB/MM jackpot get huge...at the counter I am like, give me two dime bags of QPs and another dime bag of my own pick...lotto high baby!Party

        FYI:  I also don't smoke cigs, drink alcohol, or pay for illicit sex as I want to channel all my discretionary resources toward a positive life altering venture...lotto games.  Heck, I also love my freedom and life.  Come on MM tonight...let my QP dime bags win!

        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

            Today an item at the supermarket was scanned incorrectly so I got my money back.  Immediately I felt this was a sign from a Higher Power to buy a Fantasy 5 ticket for Mon evening.

                Within reason lol!  I only play the MM and PB but once in a while will play the Jersey Cash 5, Pick 6, and Match 6 on a whim.  When I do, I usually buy them all.  This probably happens once a month.

                    Hi all,i must admit i am a junkie for the numbers because i saw policemen getting in their cars at the shopping plaza and i actually told them to hold on a minute and let me get those numbers on your plates; boy that gave them a good laugh,They were on Lunch break and was generous to wait for me to copy all 3 plates

                    Now the price of meat is a new Low for me,i find all the meat in which the number have hit for my state in any form,for instance the 591 that hit midday Texas; Well whatever cut of meat that is 591 will be on the Supper Table,now this is interesting the other 2 numbers on the Package I find to be put on the hot list and they hit too ,Goodluck All

                        I voted take it or leave it.... The lottery has'nt been very kind to me over the yrs. so i've adopted that attitude towards it. I wont even waste my money on PB anymore till it crosses the 100 mill. mark, hardly ever play P-3 or P-4 anymore, maybe $5.00 a month on scratchoffs, but i do play NC's Cash 5 when it crosses the 200K mark.  Good Luck to ALL!!!!

                            You definitley should have!

                            But will it be the KY Pick 4 or NY? 

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
