I know someone who won $20k in a scratch-off then almost gave all of it back. Where once he was a daily scratcher, he just gave it up and has not played again since. I once asked him how he does it and his simple answer was "TUNNEL VISION".

I wish I can be like him. I want to give up the scratch-offs but just cannot develop "TUNNEL VISION". I know I maybe in the wrong forum but hoping someone out there may have a good idea on how this works.

Drop me a line if you have something to share.

            d1nnl2,

            What sully16 said, Will Power, and try this along with it, take a time period, at least 10 days, and everytime you have the urge to play a scrather take the money you would have spent on it and put it in a cigar box or something. At the end of the time period see how much you have in there.

            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.

              After you have calculated how much you have saved, you can mail it to P.O. Box 12355 C/O Lottoboner.Wink

                The way this works is that when you have the urge to scratch, dig yourself a mile long tunnel, or until you lose your vision.  Beaver

                When one of, or both of these events happen, you will no longer have the urge to scratch.

                  Use will power as adviced by sully16  and also use your debit card to buy groceries. Many wouldn't be willing to pay ATM fees to buy scratch offs

                    You know how many people I see using the ATM to buy , lottery, booze and cigarettes, yikes, thats just insult to injury.

                      I did that when I quit smoking, after a couple weeks I think I had about 70 bucks, I also quit putting money away, just kept less out of my check and put it directly into my savings, much better return then a shoe box.

                          I only ever pay ATM fees when I am really in need. For cash I go to stores that offer cash back when I swipe or my bank ATM. I would never pay ATM fees to buy lottery. That $2 ATM fee is a PB quick pick right there lol

                          That money's gone fo ever
