No wonder I haven't won big yet, I'm doing it all wrong!

I'm playing for the $$. I should be focusing on being a potblocker! ROFL LOLGreen laughROFL LOLGreen laughROFL LOLGreen laugh

Potblocking is a real problem.  Winners are conspiring to screw us all over!

I'm sure every winner laughs at all of us and laughs at the lottery too and says "We just screwed all these chumps out of millions and it was WAY TOO EASY!"

      So I bought tickets in "Can't lose" states and still lost!

      I get sick and tired of seeing it be WAY TOO EASY for winners to win!

      I've played HARD for years and have won nothing significant.

      My anger is boiling over due to all of this.

      Does anyone else feel just as frustrated?

        For all gamblers, even small-time bettors, gambling at the very least correlates with feelings such as irritation, frustration and aggravation then can worsen to agony, depression, violence and suicide. Gamblers may not always admit experiencing these feelings. However, gamblers definitely do experience these feelings. Even small-time $1 a week lottery players get irritated, frustrated and aggravated when always losing. Rarely though do gamblers only bet $1 a week even if saying that. When gamblers who say they only ever bet $1 a week, see a super jackpot getting big and bet $5, $10, $20 or more on it, then they are not $1 a week gamblers any longer. Gambling always means losing money. Usually losing more money than intended. The bottom line is that losing money and feeling all of these negative emotions is not fun, recreational or entertaining.

         

        Every so-called moderate gambler has a gambling problem. Suppose that you are considered to be a moderate gambler. A moderate gambler will occasionally lose for example $5 at a time. So the gambling industry basically "grabs" $5 at a time from you. You would remember this for a lifetime if a thief grabbed a $5 bill out of your hand and ran away with it. What about a gambling industry "thief" who grabs $5 each time from you for a super jackpot lottery drawing? The odds are that you will never hit a super jackpot even if living many thousands of lifetimes. How about grabbing $5 a race at the horse racetrack? How about grabbing $5 a hand at blackjack? How about grabbing $5 for a few slot machine pulls? How about grabbing $5 per stock trade? How about grabbing $5 from you at other gambling activities? That occasional $5 multiplied by countless occasional times, adds up to a lot of money over the months and years. Anyone who is grabbing your money like this is a problem that must be eliminated. But the gambling industry does not want you to think this way. The gambling industry wants you to think that each occasional $5 lost gambling is fun, recreational and entertaining. The gambling industry spends millions of dollars on advertising and public relations to keep their so-called moderate gambling customers foolish and ignorant about gambling. This book will clearly show that gambling in moderation is not okay. This book will wise you up to their propaganda. Readers of this book who smartly apply its information will choose to keep money in the bank or spend it wisely on truly pleasurable, meaningful things.

                  Skeptical  the only problem gamblers I see,are the ones that insist on spending over $15-30 every week

                   

                  even when the pot grows to ginormous sizes,I still don't see much a point spending more then the price of a ticket

                   

                  I've been playing for years and I know my habits never have nore will change

                   

                  its funny how certain folks here insist on posting about thar $10 - 30 purchase every time the MM or the PB grows past a given amount

                    Keep a ticket in every game.  When you go to purchase tickets--say "jackpot" "jackpot" on your way in and on the way out of the store.  Speak it into being.

                      Today, I purchased 1 Cash4Life, 1 MM, 1 PB, 1 NY Lotto, 1 Take 5 and 1 pick 10. I also purchased a $5 scratch called NY POKER. I won $30 on that.

                      I spent $13 which will cover me in all jackpot games until Wednesday. And now with the $30 win, I am $17 ahead for now.

                          No need to quit jj.  Maybe you spend way too much on tickets every week.  One dollar a week on what ever.  Only one dollar.  If you're lucky, that's all you need.

                              I can't Imagine myself getting so uptight about the inability to beat astronomical odds. It's so weird...lol...I would think that's a given. Hello..lol

                              Not too healthy centering your real life around something so remote, it's almost untouchable. 

                              The only legitimate issue I get angry over is the bogus pre and post tests. 

                              Find it strange that people get discouraged because they don't win the JP, even though they are aware of the astronomical odds against them winning. Then complain using the wrong reasons as justification...lol

                              Strange, just a couple of weeks ago someone, I forget who challenged me concerning the issue of the lack of knowledge of the odds amongst the general public, and furthermore seemingly lottery enthusiasts. 

                              Maybe I'll save this post as further proof for future debates. It's a filing logistical nightmare though...ha
