James please take care.
For awhile I wasn't posting because I actually was a little uneasy about what I was seeing but just like
alcoholics, unless they make a firm commitment to changing their lifestyle nothing anyone else says or
does has an effect on how they think. So, I went back to posting some winners thinking, while it was
an enticement, my winners weren't going to affect your thinking...and neither were anyone else's.
It feels good to win but also feels good to have control. I'm going out of my way here and probably will
be looked down on but someone has to say something.
I remember saying once to you James that buying a ticket here and there was probably a good way to
go. I remember you brushing it off and saying, yeah, I think I'll try it. Posts later you were buying packs
A couple at the most from one bin or counter at a time is still, in my opinion, the very best way to go on
the $20 tickets, up to 4 at a time on the $5's, max 3 on the $10's of one game/one store - 5 - 10 $2's
and up to 20 at a time $1's.
At the risk of sounding like a strong arm...oh well...I believe you're in deep and should probably go check
out GA. It's easy to by-pass or ignore a situation because it is uncomfortable but now that I've got that
much out, I'm over the hump.
Who are you to me and why should I care? Well, you are a fellow poster who I've has associations
with for months in this forum. I like your posts and laughed with you, wtg'd you, read with interest
your results and looked forward to coming to this forum after logging in to get the latest and hope for
the best, for you especially. To shy away from you now would be wrong. I know the first thing on your
mind must be to get out and recoup losses or get gambling but if you have the time, I think it would be
much better spent going back to the time where you won the $4,000 and reading your posts from that
This is the last time I'll say anything and I don't need anyone to like, agree with or comment on anything
I said if they don't like it....I didn't do it for you, I did it for James....and anyone else who wanted to say
something but didn't feel it was appropriate.
The old battlewagon should be buzzing around soon banging the drum and sounding the horn to stay
on topic........this IS topic. Cold fish and cold hearts were never a few of my favorite things.
Good luck James.
