I'm so mad that I  miss my cash 4 payday. I said I'm quitting. I know that I want I feel my juice

stiring already. Maybe I just want play today. I beginning to think I might be a little hook. I did

quit for a year about 3 years ago  because I was to busy at work.

    I take vacations from playing, sometimes other things in life have to come first. If I don't have time to do my workouts I'll just go with a favorite number and I'll str8 it and box it. I got fed up with keno and quit that for good , only once every six weeks does someone win the jackpot . So no more $$$$$ from me.

      I use to buy $10.00 worth of jackpot I cut that down to $3.00. I decide the it only take 1.00 to win and if I had

      them I would win. I played Keno a couple of times just couldn't get into it.

                With any form of gambling it's important to know your limits and stick to them.  Also when it stops being fun it's time to take a break.

                  While I do play one of the jackpot games almost every week, I don't feel I'm addicted to playing because when I don't play I don't consider it quitting.  I like to pick my combinations using a system I'm developing that takes about an hour to update and recalculate before I pick any numbers.  If playing doesn't excite me enough to spend the time updating the system and making out play slips then I don't play.  Playing lotteries is entertainment for me.

                  And too, I don't play the number games because they are daily games and their lower odds can lure players into believing they can win more playing them while the facts are states keep 50% of sales of all games regardless of their odds and numbers games are their most profitable games.  Players lose as much playing them as any other game.

                    I've never felt the need to quit.

                    When I was working I was very often too tired to bother with it or would just forget to play.

                    Now that I'm retired I have more time to think about it and the time to play.

                    I find it to be an enjoyable hobby that can be as inexpensive as I want it to be.

                    I could play for 25 cents a day 7 days a week if I wanted to (VA Pick5).

                    Hell, If my hobby was crossword puzzles I'd have to spend at least 75 cents a day just for the dadgum newspaper.

                          It's actually very healthy to take a break from playing once in while. Doing so will allow you to come up with new ideas and strategies which you couldn't see before because you're so clouded with what you currently work with. In addition, it'll allow you to save up money while you're not playing, so, it can be a win-win situation for the most part. I do it all the time just see if I'm maybe missing out on something.

                          Every approach to these games can always be improved upon. If I ever become stagnant thinking I can't get better then I may as well quit altogether. I'm trying my best to find ways to cut my number count down as I speak. I don't enjoy spending lots of money for my hits because it does cut into profit, yet, improves efficiency (consistency). However, I'd love to make more profit because it means I have more to work with overall.

                          What I do isn't necessarily the "best" way...it's just efficient. I want to make more money on a single hit so I don't have to play but maybe 2-3 times per week. Playing all the time isn't good as it increases chances of losing money. Hitting big a couple times relieves having to play so you can enjoy the win for a change. You'll be okay if you'll just take your time and study more...save your money because it's all about opportunity to get that BIG hit!!! With no money, you have no chance...remember that. Good luck, Pepper.

                              I really like your attitude. Patience is definitely paramount with these games. Keep playin' your numbers because persistence does pay when compiled with confidence...even if it's not quite the big one. Two weeks ago, I played the Texas Lottery for the first time in ages and got within 1-2 numbers of matching them all! Hope this encourages you!!
