but every time I play and lose then I think that I could have bought something else for the $2 - does anyone else here think that way?   So far this year I've purchased $20 in tickets ended up with $0 winnings and I'm like I could have bought something else for $20 -

No. I prefer to think of it as what if I didn't play my numbers for $2. I might have hit for a second tier prize, or even the jackpot.

We never know when our time is coming.

 

I never dwell of the small stuff I could have bought with my lottery money, it's just small stuff.

Gotta keep the big picture in focus all the time and just ride it out. Patience and persistence will win in the long run.

    Just try giving up something in exchange for the money then you will not feel badly about it.  I gave up starbucks so this is now the money from that coffee.  But if that $20 would have been used for something essential (rent, a mortgage payment, etc). then you should not be playing (in my opinion).

      I Agree!  I got rid of my Poland spring water deliveries and some premium channels on my cable.

                  Now my tickets cost me next to nothing!

        In four days they will sell enough tickets that someone will win and maybe even two people will win.  Just my two cents!  Good luck!-weshar75
