    Its always good to take a break.  One month I did real well, the next month, not so well.  I 've learn to keep your system updated, even when you are not playing.  That way your system won't or your feel for the numbers won't get cold.  I play on paper or put my numbers on the predictions board on this site to see if I can get back in the winning circle.  When i hit at that point I jump back in the game.  Its fun to me when it stop being fun I stop playing.  to mee its a win win situation.  when you stop playing you actually ar saving money.  Stop playing long enough you will save enough to get back in the game.   So. 

    Live and Learn !

      Unless you've won a jackpot or the second prize in one of the multi-state games, the question should be "how much have you lost chasing the big prize".  If I can keep my loses down to an affordable amount then I feel the chase has been worth the cost. 

      No one ever ask how much profit have you made drinking all those six packs or smoking those cartons of cigarette and yet where I buy my lottery tickets they make most of their money selling cigarettes, beer and gasoline.

        Don't put down cigs and beer. At least I get some entertainment from them. Not that I don't get entertainment in playing the lottery, but that's not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that I can make my lungs black while inhaling cigs, and getting a nice buzz while sipping Heinekens....Sorry...no comparison.

          Still chasing the pipe dream and losing along the way! Who said being persistent didnt have a payoff, I help payoff all the senior citizens meds and foods that our lottery funds go towards :)  Which good ole PA still likes to boast its lottery supports the Seniors yet only 20% out of the 50% they set aside goes to senior programs...you do the math for where that money really goes...

            You do not have to play everyday.

            To profit is a dream, so to speak. You are not going to win all the time. Unless the win is huge?

            To take a break, is normal and quite favorable for the mind.

            Sometimes you think one way and you get burned time after time.

            After the break, you might come out on top!

            Always look towards the top, never the bottom.

                I'm not making a profit at the moment and I have no plans on taking a break. I play PB, MM and HL which are jackpot games, so unless I win 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize I am probably not going to be making a profit in the first place.

                  Am I making a profit???????????

                   

                  H-E- DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS NOOOOOOOOOO! 

                  Are we allowed to curse in the forum?

                  It's definitely time for my darn break! I don't know the math, but I'm pretty certain I'm in the hole.  The last time I took a break, my set of numbers came out two days in a row and then one did again on the weekend.  I wanted to cry like a baby!  The fear I have of stopping and them coming out is overpowering my sense of logic to say quit this stupid chase.

                    So if this is my VICE whats wrong with spending the money on it 'until' I win?  I don't smoke, or drink (consistently).  I bring lunch to work, so don't 'BUY" lunch.  

                    But if I win anything then I get ahead vs all the above 'vices' where the money is never coming back.

                    So I am comfortable with spending a little money on the lottery.

                        I have played for myself only three times this year. I do not make enough of a profit on the lottery to justify playing.

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                          When it stops being fun stop playing.

                          But tell me what your numbers are first.

                          Because they will come in right after you stop.

                          But then they won't come in because I'm playing them.

                          So never mind.

                              I most definitely agree with your first sentence and am completely convinced that playing when the numbers are "in season" brings more consistent wins...or the absolute best chance of winning.
