We've all got things we're going to do if we win a jackpot. Houses, cars, travel, charities, etc...but how about never agains?

This would porobably bre on most people's list:

Working for somebody else. If you're not living your dream you're helping someone else live theirs

Some of mine would be:

Never again:

Going through hot, humid summers

Smelling mildew

Mowing grass

Anyone else?

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

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.

    Never again shall I be subjugated to poverty and mediocrity. I believe my winnings will help me change community mindset, and thus, the future.

        Coin,  you come up with some of the coolest topics!

        1. Never again, will I have to worry about what will happen to me  financially, when I am too old to work.

        2.Never again will I have to fight thousands of people  for one job.  If I get laid off from this one, after my jackpot win, I will retire.

        3. Never again will I have to could the days til another payperiod.

        4. Never again will I have to be upset because I dont have the money to  fix something in the house.

          Thanks lottocalgal, and I hear you on the financials. My last ppst in the Army was Monterey, Ft. Ord. I remember going to work with less than a dollar and being in a grocery store one night to get a literl of & UP, which costs 17 cents at the time, and I also needed a colored markert but it was too close to payday to get both.

          Pitiful.

          But I do miss those "summers" in Monterey!

            I'll never ever ever have to kiss anyone's a$$ again., except for the laws of the land.  My job requires it.

            The above would be top of the list.

            The rest of the "Nevers" list would be too long to list here. The bandwidth cost needed to write them all out would force Todd  to go into bankruptcy....

                  Never Again would anyone in My Family have any Needs.

                  Never Again would a unwanted Animal need a home, I would buy acres/square miles of land and Start a sanctuary around Harrietta Michigan for all so they could live a good long life.

                  I would make good investments so all this could stay True.

                    I agree with you that life is uncertain at times, but a vast amount of cash only helps deal with those uncertain times with confidence. Like I've said many times before, I'm spiritual by nature, but we live in a material world, and unfortunately, money rules. Once the problems associated with money are resolved, everything else falls into place.

                    Money may not be everything in this world, I agree, but you can't live without it. Don't fall into the tired old trap of  the famous"one-liners" that have been passed down for decades. The ones that say "Money doesn't make you happy" nonsense.

                    The rich folks you hear about on the news who get into trouble may give the illusion that their lives are miserable, and it may be so, but they have the resources to rehabilitate themselves. If they choose not to, like Michael Jackson as an example, well....stupidity will always rear it's head in exceptions to that rule. Fame, money, and drugs only fueled their demise. That is the minority in my opinion. Most will get back on track, whether it's a divorce, drugs, alchohol, child custody...etc...

                    No matter how much money folks have, they will still have problems. That's a given. The difference between rich and poor folks is whether they have the funds to adequately deal with those problems.

                    At least I can afford really expensive psychiatrists...lol

                      I will say this...in general people are stupid and people with money equals super-stupid...not everyone will end up in a bad place after a huge win...but it could happen if they stop focusing on the things money can't buy...like love, kindness and their own creativity.

                      Yes money will solve all my problems, because they happened because of a lack of money...so I agree with you on many levels.

                      I just hate seeing people get a little money and think they are better than everyone else.

                        Being retired and having all I will ever need, I have no idea what I would never again do. 

                        Also, money may not be everything but it sure is way ahead of whatever is in second place.

                          Never again would I spend 8 hours slicing meat and cheese.

                          Never again would anyone in my family choose between medical care or food.

                          Never again would my best friend Sue clean someone elses house.

                            I know one thing I surely would like to avoid doing is going with out a need...like food, electricity and as you mentioned medical care.

                            I remember on summer my parents couldn't pay the electric bill because my mom got ill and we had to live out of a cooler and grill our food outside...which was awful...no one should ever have to go without basic needs.

                              I accomplished one of my major "never agains" when I retired: Never again sitting in rush-hour traffic in a big city. There's not many things I hate more than sitting in stop and go traffic.

                              My next one is never again relying on an outside source or paying anybody for electric when I get completely off the grid.
