I play the lottery numbers that I think will show up and maybe a few will and most won't.. I have wanted so much to win, that I think I want it too much!

How do you stop yourself from getting anxious over numbers, and have the mind set that they will either show or they won't..

 

I don't want to spend a $1 or 2 daily and then wonder if I am wasting money. I just want to have peace of mind, no matter what!

 

Thank youDance

    sounds like you take it too seriously. if it makes you that anxious, don't play. you buy a ticket or two and hope for the best, but to worry over it takes all the fun out of it.

    you want peace of mind and no anxiety when gambling, well you can't have your cake and eat it too...ha, something has to give.

    and what does superstition have to do with being anxious?

          only sure fire way  i know of for them to show up, is to stop buying tickets. they'll appear in  no time at all.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

            I believe your luck ebbs and flows Elizabeth, it comes and goes.

            And when it comes, the numbers you played will be the right ones - no matter what they are.

            The only requirement is to have them in play.

            Best of luck to you.

                You, me, and a lot of other folks fit that bill Liz.

                Don't know what other people do, but I started playing out of change spittoon. It's not doing anything but sitting there anyway.

                  Hi, Elizabeth   I play the ones I think will show after I do a quick workout - it changes daily with what number needs to show.  Most of the time Im feeding the state kitty but when I win  its thrilling ! I really cut my spending on it. Lessening disappointment lol   Remember- it only takes one ticket to win - no need to feel anxious. Be anxious when you win and your name gets published in the paper !     Good Luck  : )

                      When I buy tickets  I always check later that night or the next day for the results and then get disappointed if I miss the right numbers, and think that I wasted another  $ 1 or more..

                      I would rather have casual thinking when it comes to lottery numbers like some people and not feel let down if the numbers I chose don't show right away.

                       

                      And just know that another day might be better and more relaxed for me. Ideally I would like to think that way!Party

                        I'm with you on that Elizabeth!, I sometimes won't check my numbers until a few days later. I like to hold on to that blissful feeling that the lottery has already been tied up by me; I'm just taking my real....... sweet....... time....... to drop into that lotto office and pick up that pretty little check.   I Agree!

                          I'd rather hold off on checking tickets and then when I do, I visualize that I am going to a store or bank, or lottery office to cash them in.. I would be delighted!

                           

                          Hope you win as well!

                            Checking the lotto numbers the night of the FRI or SAT drawing or not ??? Although I may and usually do.....Probably should wait and get a few rested nights, so when you do win you can contact the lawyers and other legal advisors starting that weekday  ..if the drawing is TUE or WED.....Go get em and start calling the next day !!!
                              Don't forget to breathe and remain silent if you do win the big one !!!

                              When I was blessed with winning the Powerball second prize back on 8/4/07 ($200k for getting all 5 white balls on an EP), the drawing was on a Saturday. I remember vividly looking at my EP# just after purchasing at my local supermarket, and thinking to myself that was a throwaway number and waste of a good dollar. (The numbers were 2-23-24-27-36 PB 31).

                              Not having won anything to speak of ($100 in "98"), for several years I stuffed the ticket in my truck's center console and didn't bother checking until late Monday Morning 8/6. I pulled up my NH lottery website and was dumbfounded when I started comparing my numbers to the website's winning numbers, 2, 3, 4!, 5!!! numbers ALL CORRECT. Had I the correct PB# (3), I would have stood to collect $115 Million.  Scared  My EP PB# was 31 Roll Eyes

                              I had no clue as to what getting 5 numbers on Poweball was worth at the time?, being to excited to continue surfing the website I found out the lottery commission's contact # and proceeded to give them a call. I remember thinking to myself $10,000 maybe $50,000??? When I was told by the pleasant woman's voice on the other end of the phone how much my ticket was worth, it was surreal.....just like that,........ completely unexpected!

                              I immediately drove down to the lottery office, just 20 minutes away, and within a half hour I had my spanking new check for $150k (less $50k for federal tax).  No state tax in "Live Free or Die" NH!

                               

                              Anyhow the point of this whole story is that I took a couple of day's before checking my numbers, and to this day I consider it a good omen to not rush to check my lotto numbers right after the drawing. TAKE YOUR TIME......GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT.   Hurray!
