10Grand isn't anything to change anyone's life over.

One's goal should be not to let your account go below 10 Grand at any one time.  You never know when you might need a pick'me up ... You never know what one's life will deal..

6 months or more of your salary should be kept on reserve... JUST IN CASE...

I Agree! 

The first thing that came to my mind was Dave Ramsey when I read this, but the statement is the truth.

I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

      In the immediate future I would quit playing. I think after winning that much I'd be focused on what I'm going to do with the money; going out and picking up more tickets would be the last thing on my mind. I think after the thrill had been subsided and the money spent or allotted, I'd probably start playing just the same as I had been.

       If I hit the Mega Millions, however ($163m tomorrow night, go me!), I'd probably never buy a lottery ticket again. With that kind of incomprehsible luck befalling me, I just wouldn't bother pushing my luck anymore, even at $1. Just take it, run, be happy.  Not to detract from the original poster's question, but does anyone else have thoughts on whether you'd continue to play if you won the big one?

        Well, Lukin I don't believe I would continue to play it's just too much greed in that! I'd like to see someone else get a piece of the action. Besides I'd be too busy trying to watch over my $75Mil

        So much to do so little time!!! But wouldn't it be nice to have that problem?
