    If you think you've got a gambling problem there's a number to call on most lottery tickets and pamphlets and websites.

    I hope it all works out for you monty.

    Take care,

        There's probably a number to call for that problem too.

            What can help is...you can paint an apartment or room, go swimming, in other words, keep very busy to the point that time will pass by and keep your mind off of numbers.  When you start losing more than winning you should take a breather and stop playing for a while.  The systems in playing these games changes quite often so you will have to start back testing without playing anything.  Think about it, all the winnings you had will dwindle and the lottery wins. You have to remember , do not let them take all of yourNo No winnings back. Wishing you the best.

                This is what I did (currently doing) when I was tired of loosing,  I posted the $ amount that I could have saved if i did not play the lottery based on what I've loss at any given time.  In an odd way that boost your motivation to save it; Which I did.  Now, if I want to play, I limit to what small amount works for me and play that for that month only win or loose, that amount is what I play for that month.... it works., in fact any system or reccomedations anyone gives you is based on dicipline.  Having that $amount looking at me when I look at my blackberry or any pda or posted on my pc desktop note pad, or in my car on a note pad,  or on the refrigeratior door, is a constant reminder of how i can do better with my money. and also, keeping extra busy.  Even though i have a full time job, i've started working out more  and yes! that $ amount is starring me in the face, on the tv of my work out video.  :)

                hope all reccomendations help

                live and learn !

                  That is too funny. At work, when that overplayed commercial with the lawyer comes on for Florida, we all say "AX Garry....lol...Green laugh

                  I've had enough of hearing those dumb ads. You can't turn on your T.V. or listen to ANY radio station, and when I say just about ANY radio station, I'm not exagerrating, he's there with those corny stories about helping the community.

                      I hear ya montymont. I decided to drastically cut back on my play and just play a few lines for each game. I want to keep my foot in the door on most of the JP games but I'm not going to try and chase wins like I was doing. In it's place, I opened an online stock account last month, have been trading penny stocks and have made a 30% return on my money already.

                      So, I'll keep playing the lottery but not to the level I was playing before.

                      Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

                          If you have a passion for the game: Change the way you play!

                          If you don't have a passion for the game: Quit!

                          If you're a shotgun player: Become a sharpshooter!

                          Instead of betting: Play on paper as you learn new skills!

                          You'll know when it's time: To start betting again!

                          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                            My take on the whole concept is... don't play until u have a reliable system... i just try to develop a system as a hobby... risk free... I for one never play the lottery because I haven't developed a reliable system... but it's fun to try to develop one and predict the numbers.... I for one doubt if such a system will ever be 70 percent win /loss ratio... but you can substitute your gambling addiction into a hobbby of trying to predict the numbers without risk... works for me!

                              I'm about to quit Pick 3, not becayuse of a losing streak, though.  Although I was on about 1.5-2 months of Pick 3 losses, then I won 9 boxes on 3 different numbers (like 9 boxes total, so 9 times about $40 that week.  I was out of state last night, and my number came out straight, one of the ones I caught box that week.

                               

                              But now I'm thinking I'm only gonna play Jackpot games.  If you are talking about those, then IDK what to tell you except that I've only won 1 $11 prize on one of my first Jersey Cash 5 tickets and never even won anything else on another JP game ticket.
