We all know that not every ticket is a winner.  So after you've checked your tenth consecutive losing ticket, you might feel the need to curse.  Which word is YOUR fave?

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

    Honestly, I don't curse and pass getting upset. It took almost a year for me to retrain my thoughts realizing that if I expected to win I should be happy for others that win, know that I was going to win and keep a positive outlook for the next game. When I miss as I missed miserably last night on the PB  just brush it off, see what and why I missed and get ready for the next draw   I normally always get at least 2/5 and several 3/5, 4/5 so when I get 0/5 I smile , say hmmm and for 17 seconds reroute my thoughts to get ready win the next  game

    Stay In The Vortex, you'll be happy you did ..... Random? Seriously? You want me to believe that?

      Great comments about being positive.  What I get upset over is the OBVIOUS numbers I MISSED or failed to play on the SAME line.  I had ALL 5 numbers for Fridays numbers 4 on 2 lines (2 each for FP's) and the last number on a 3rd line.

        That happens to me too.  3 weeks ago playing the Mega, I normally play 20-30 lines. I gad every number including the BB but not all on one line.  I did gave 4/5 plus BB. When I miss like this or like you did I say to myself WOW, I had EVERY number.  Something not many people can do. Think POSITIVE NOT negative.  Negative brings negative thoughts and listing tickets.  Thinking POSITIVE brings WINNING tickets. (-:
