Yes, I do feel like I am trashing the money and paper when I am playing the lotto but once I win it. It will be like a investment and won't be a waste after all.

    well..I don't think its a waste of money..

    i treat playing the lottery (pick 3/4) as a hobby..yes a expensive hobby!

    I do win straight about once a month that makes me feel its worth it..and the box wins pay for the plays in between...

    so its not a waste if you enjoy playing and sometimes winning..

    have a great winning day!

      No, I don't really feel like I'm wasting money because I'm a $1 and $2 player.

      For the money played and the chance to win the amounts the jackpots are it's not really a bad deal, cheap entertaiment in fact, as long as you don't let it control you. 

      People who get carried away and then get p.o'd about losing and want their money back have no business playing in the first place.

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

      Lep

      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.

        Alot of times I hear a negative voice called my mother or someone else telling me I am wasting my money buying tickets that I should buy something else, but I think of the lottery as an investment to a better tomorrow hopefully!I Agree!

              I Agree!  In my case that close relative is an Obama voter who would give 90% of what I gave her to her church with the Obama loving preacher, and I don't want him to have it.  Therefore, because I still love her, I'd pay for all her big ticket neccessties like medical bills and nothing more.

              Be sassy and be happy.

                Blasting the old junk cars and trucks in your front yard with a shotgun from the front window works wonders for stress too. I've found it to be way better than positive thinking.

                Actually though, it's the most fun with the .50 Cal Desert Eagle. I love the sound of a .50 Cal in the morning... sounds like... victory.

                Your replies are always out of context.start thinking positive.

                  In fact, I just tried Remote Viewing you to see what you're doing. and I must admit, it works.

                      No, I don't feel like I'm "wasting money".  I used to get down about not winning, but lately, I've been thinking good thoughts and positive energy.  When I don't win, I just keep upbeat and think of the next lottery.

                              No. Because when I do play I win a little something each time.
