Why are you playing? Most do it in order to get ahead economically. I am here to remind you that it will not work for you. If you release back to play, you keep careful written records, winnings and losses. In fact, 95 to 99 percent of people lose and the poor proportion of people usually win the average below the minimum wage during the year. But of course you will beat the jackpot.
But almost no-one really understands their odds to beat the jackpot. Yes, you are only one of 44 million to win, but would not it be good if you did? To understand what these odds mean is that you are in a high school with 1000 people. They will release a Nerf ball and the one who gets it will be 30 million dollars. How many football arenas do they need to fly to make the odds 1 in 44 million? The answer is 44,000 stadiums that are all stuck with people.
It is also the odds of 44 million of an ugly guy like striking my favorite movie star out of the blue and discovering that they are so excited to see me that they let go of everything and want to start a relationship. Okay, I apologize. I really did not mean to crush two of your favorite fantasies in one sitting. She will really enjoy you when you meet her.
The second reason that many games are fun. Most of us like to take a moderate amount of money we can afford to lose and have a fun night at the casino. The question is, as we cross the line of measurement, we can increase our pleasure. The answer is that you can never increase your enjoyment of game control, because even if you win all you do is what I call selling our word of mouth. When you win, you will be extremely pleased to beat the system. But when you lose it a week later, plus some money you needed to buy necessities, you crash and have extreme pain with the situation you are in.
If you stop playing, it is hard for you to help get a photo of the person / person you love most in life, write on the back how you feel when you have lost all your money and how your game would affect them and your relationship with them. Put it on your computer or in your wallet when you are out, when you feel like you are having a good look and reading what you have written.
Ex players say they enjoy life more after ending playing. But when you tell yourself that you will be happier after you quit playing is very specific. You will be happier for the month when you are clean, but some days get tough. I think it is worth avoiding a couple of trips to the casino per month because I can be happy every day now. My new activities and pleasure give me less pain and more joy and more money throughout the month than playing. After we stopped playing, we are no longer a slave to be driven by the addict who brings the stress to it. We understand that abstinence is healthier in every way; economically, mentally, emotionally and relationally.
Gambling destroys your spirituality. Neither permanent nor temporary when you have a big loss. Gambling is sometimes sometimes worship. You would have to tell me if you worship greed, excitement, pleasure or something else. But what we know is that when we are out of control, we do not leave God. I recommend teaching new habits about how to worship God who will give you real pleasure. Not a manufactured short-term tension that ends in destruction. You can read about how to teach God in my article called addictive real problem.
One of the biggest keys to ending playing is to know and have organized what mental exercises you need to do to overcome abuse. The following are examples of some types of exercises that you may want to learn. Create a habit of telling yourself 5 times a day that my game causes me financial destruction. It has in the past and it will be in the future. Get a list of the benefits of ending playing. Write down all the benefits and memorize the best 3 and top 6 benefits. This lets you say the benefits several times each day until you get more solid foot in your recovery. Ask often everyday, Lord, keep me from temptation This is part of the Lords prayer from the Bible. Ask for why you play. Is it for greed? Ask so much about it because the Bible says that the greedy will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. Is it for excitement? Ask what options you can do to find excitement. Start a magazine so that you can include all the final gaming ideas you find in one place so you can review them often.
