I think know I am absolutely obsessed with the lottery (more so with winning it).  Its on my mind almost all day.  Especially on days like today when the jackpot is crazy high.Crazy  I dunno, I guess my life is such in the dumps I think about winning the lottery to make myself feel better and to distract me.  Anyone else think they might be obsessed with the lottery?

        PoeticJustice please play the lottery more for entertainment. If you are feeling depressed, the last thing to make you feel better would be to lose

        more money on desperate bouts of hopeful wagering.    No Nod

         

        I enjoy and have made a good living with the lottery. The important distinction in continuing this path, is to recognize when to ease up or cease

        altogether your gambling activities. Play smart, research and learn from your mistakes and move forward cautiously.

          Oh trust me. I'm not an excessive gambler.  I'm the type that will stop playing after I lose a certain amount at the tables....not go crazy trying to "win it back".  I learned that years ago when I used to play poker with my buddies. 

           

          I admitted in another thread that I went a bit crazy on the last drawing and put in $20, but this time I dialed it back to my usual $5 so my issue isn't really about the money part of it, more the mental.

            Glad to hear that!  Yes Nod  I lost $10 in Tuesday's drawing and "dialed it back" to $3 for 2-nites drawing. I feel better about that decision, I'm

            hoping that one of of us LP'ers will lay claim to MM in a few hours.  Cheers

                  PoeticJustice32,

                  Before reading your post I was going to say those who truly are obsessed would never admit it - but I don't think you truly are. Heck, everybody here thinks about winning a jackpot, just look at all the threads about how any of us would spend the money we haven't won yet!

                  Trukly obsessed is when you see numbers in a TV show two or three times or something and go back out to play them.

                  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.

                    I would have to say sometimes..... Ever since I missed 250k by one number 4 yrs ago using a personal system,  I get excited for the next week and go over in my head what I did wrong or what could I be missing.... even if I lose or win some times I find out differnt things that I use for the next one....... Just this past week I kinda freaked out when I knew I had 3 numbers  but I did not finish my theroy and my 3 numbers came up but I need 6 to win.....

                    So yes it can mess with your head but you have to have limits and self control.....

                      Obsessed?  Nah... highly motivated to play in a myopic kinda singular-focused manner?  now THAT is a different question.

                        hey maximum, I can relate, one of my suggestions is to find a way to possibly help people on here by creating your own thread and finding a way to find winning numbers for people, not necessarily pb and mm and all of that, but p3 and p4, I got the idea from here and granted my numbers don't always come in that I suggest however it's an amazing feeling when they do...just a thought

                          oh and I used to be obsessed like your talking about see a number play it, see it on tv, mentioned somewhere go out and play, that was troubling looking back, I have now dialed back and put in maybe one qp and one of my own per game...my logic is if its your time, its your time...no matter if you put $1 or $1,000:-)

                            'Obessed' is to harsh a word, how about 'very focused', 'intensely focused'. Ha..ha.

                            Play to win!
