I have not won since the middle of april. i feel like im coming so close many times to winnin one day but i keep losin. i dont remember the last time i didnt win for a whole month and on the verge of that this month. i have told my self many times after a long drought of losing im going to quit playin the numbers but i cant break myself from playin. what can i do?
Don't quit playing because you've lost more than you've won. Losses are par for the course! How could the state lotteries stay in business if the average person was ahead?
Think of your losses as the price you are willing to pay for a chance on a Jackpot that's part of your entertainment budget. If you consider yourself of modest means, limit your betting to 1/2 hour's pay per week. If you're doing better, double that. Play the Jackpot games. If you have the time and like juggling numbers, pick your own. Then, if you remember that 1/2 of your ticket costs are going to good causes in your state, you can relax, and who knows, you may wake up some day a $Millionaire!
Another trick I've learned to get more fun out of playing the lottery is to remember that the longer you wait to check your tickets, the longer you have to dream.
