After playing MM and PB for almost 2years and not really winning anything substantial ($40 highest win) and trying my state game (classic lotto) for almost a month, I've decided to just stop playing.  It's been close to 3 weeks... I still gamble but play the market instead.  Believe it or not, I still check the numbers I've played to see if they come up but for right now, I'm done=)

    Can I gamble $1 or $2 in the stock market?

      I already have positions in the market, I'm just adding to them... unlike most people here, I'd kept track of my lottery expenses and it just didn't make sense.

        Why do they call Warren Buffett Mr. THRIFTY?

          "I already have positions in the market..."

          A lot of people have a position in the market -- usually it's bent over.

                  I like playing the lottery so I don't think I'll ever stop. What I have done and will keep doing is changing the games I participate in. I watch how much I spend so that I don't get a serious case of buyers remorse.

                  That money's gone fo ever
