I was in Las Vegas, NV, in the fall of 2010. It’s, of course, one of the most popular, fun and exciting cities in America (or in the world?) It’s really one of a kind. You see things there that you just don’t see anywhere else.
What happened is you gambled with money you could not afford to lose and won on Friday. This brought you increased pleasure. But when you lose it all the next Friday you have destruction and pain. A person who does not gamble has less pleasure then you on Friday #1. But then they have much more pleasure than you on Friday #2 because you got wiped out. They also do not get the destruction and pain you get on Friday #2 when you go broke. Please see my article Pleasure + Addiction = Pain for more information on how addiction never brings us more pleasure over the course of the month, year, and usually not even over the course of two weeks.
The flow of money involved is crucial to predicting the possible run for any particular gambling week. If you start your gambling campaign on a Monday with $200.00, then you must record the amount on a Friday and compare the fluctuation involved.
Why not control other parts of our lives too? How about having a person at the store inspect our groceries to decide when we have had enough Twinkies, or chips? Seems to me that obesity is a bigger problem (No pun intended) than gambling. How about limiting people on the amount of money they can spend on toys, such as jet skies, bass boats, motorcycles, and Plasma TVs etc? Who is protecting us from wasting our money in these cases?
The next thing to remember is do not enable this person who has a Gambling problem. You will not be helping them at all. A Gambling addict will come up with all kinds of creative reasons why they need your help financially. DO NOT believe them. In order for a gambling addict to stop สล็อต he/she must learn the consequences of his/her actions.
On a more positive note, the odds aren’t heavily stacked against you at most casino games. Casino games are designed to give the house a small edge. This means you won’t instantly lose everything all at once. You might even finish the night a big winner.
Since these people will eat, talk, and sleep gambling, you are most likely to follow their lifestyle. It is very easy to like the winning part and this can be your motivation. The kick you get out of getting “easy money” adds icing to the cake.
