    I quit when they pry my cold dead fingers from the pencil and bet slip.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      LMAO! Rdgrnr has that effect, doesn't he? I love his outlook, and his posts brighten my day. If you "play on" jrosina, I'm wishing you all the luck in the world!!!Wink

      I'm not going to stop playing either, Rdgrnr, even when I win. It will surely take the pressure off of trying to get a big jackpot, but I will still play for fun, because I enjoy it. I think there's a real system, and the numbers are not truly random. I don't think my brain will rest...it will still keep trying to figure it out.

      I did stop regularly playing scratchers and I have completely stopped playing the daily 4.

      The amount to win is usually only around $3-5k.  And the last time when another set I played came up the amount was only $2k.  So with that thought, I would not feel too disappointed if my set came up.

      I don't think I would EVER stop playing Fantasy Five or even SLP. Its my only vice.  Besides I would spend it on stupid things anyway.  I could be a pack a day smoker,  talk about a waste of money.  what is it now, $5 or $6 a pack?  I don't spend $155 per month on lotto.

        Good for you Nino224, Wow!!  What an eye opener they love their wives and the little extracurricular activities,  I love your choices better!!! May you and your wife stay together long after the kids have grown-up-gone and are prosperous!

        Then all the both of you will do (Well not all you will do) but one of the many things you will do, is look at each other and smile-knowing that you made it without the lots and lots of guns, (well maybe one gun. No, 2 guns to help keep the creeps away.) Lets play on and watch that dream become a reality!!!

        forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

        Now, does it count??

          Yes LadyM, I did reply. but wait did I hit post reply?, maybe not.   I was saying when I replied to you was this; I am glad to see that I am not the only one who believes that The Lottery Is Not Random, So lets figure this thing out and help all the LP family.  Oh boy, that would be something! Imagine every one getting out of the stinking trap at the same time, well you first of course but it would be great!! and yes I just love Rdgrnr, I love his humor and his wit, It's good to have met this man! Now lets Win, win, win!!!SmileWink

                I was having a friendly fire side chat,Dunk with Coin Toss about the degenerate players like myself, and began to wonder if I decided to stop could I? or would I even want to!  and then I ask myself, why wouldn't I want to. It could have its pluses, I could use the time I spend with pencil and paper and write, or start a childrens school, or do another two laps when I run in the morning! Hhhhmmm!  I might be on to something, Thanks coin toss.   On the other hand maybe... nah!   What about you.

                Only you can determine when and if you should stop playing.

                  Well, hopefully the both of us can figure it out!!  It's time to turn our luck around. Lep  I'm needing some money around here, in a big way.

                    If my hopes and dreams die or if I simply lose interest! If I only have a few dollars which seems like alot lately then I stop playing. Nice thing about the lottery is there's always another chance to play!

                      Yes LadyM, I don't know about you; but I am going to play until it turns around. You know what they say LadyM, the harder you work the luckier you get!  The harder you work part, is the part I am not particularly fund of since I am always working, but it is what it is!   As for the need forr the cold cash, we all can use it don't we?  So Let's play on!

                        I am in full agreement, and I will not stop, I do win and when I do its like making an Unexpected withdrawal from the bank, You don't leave the balance of your money at the banck you go and periodically make a withdrawal.   And the Stock House  is still there. better than Merryl Lynch!!
