          I agree Jani ! Its the love of money thats evil, not the money itself. You cant take it with you when you go.

              Money doesn't buy you happiness... but it sure helps!

              I don't think there's anyone here who's claiming that financial security would make them completely happy.  If they are, they're fooling themselves.  However, no longer needing to worry about money ought to be good for something.  Sure, I think financial security would make me happier than I am currently.  I hereby volunteer to win a multi-million dollar jackpot and find out!  Banana

                 For me I think it would. I mean Im happy now but all my problems that I have now can be tied to lack of funds and or no time for certain things. Winning the lottery would definately make me a happier person, Im sure my blood pressure would go down and Id have way more "me" time. So do you think having financial security would make you happier? If no why not

                Hi Shelby Mustang,

                I agree with your post. Even in many marriages I'm sure that lack of money is a big issue. Having financial security was one of the reasons for my playing the lottery in the first place. There is something freeing about not being tied down to a job and being able to take control of your life and how you choose to live it without the constraints of worrying about paying the bills.

                    I play the lottery every other day, I was curious do people ever play number's and not worry if they lose out on money ? Or do they stress over it like I have. I want to take a more laid back approach to buying ticket's..

                      Yes, I have played my own numbers and quick picks for over 17 years and yes I stress over my numbers not coming out all the time.  Part of the stress is me believing that the lotteries are not totally true random number picking.  I also feel that the lottery looks for the least played number sets and it is stressful trying to create a least played number set.

                              I really do think so. I have student loan debt and right now hitting the lottery for 100,000 was be so nice. I mean I could start a whole new life. Money is suppose to be a currency but for some it food, water, clothes and shelter. I hate when people say money can't bring you happiness .....I all ways wondered, then what do I need it for? Because it sure can bring you sadness and pain. Just sayin!
