Life, the ultimate mind game...
    #1716992 - 07/15/03 03:02 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

If life were easy I'd just sit here and smoke and drink until the dogs come home, but nooooo life has to be a cruel bitch thats waiting for you the minute you walk in the door.

In my time I've been dealt some shitty cards, got the short end of many sticks, had my heart ripped from my chest, and the list goes on.

Interpreting any experience is key. I struggle trying to put a positive spin on all my experiences, but some just can't be positive. Sorting through my experiences I feel like I'm defragmenting my brain and putting certain files here and some there. I try to stay away from there if you know what I mean.

This is just a chemical induced rant, but it explains how I feel. It probably doesn't make much or any sense.

Is there something in your power you can do to avoid the shit that keeps coming your way?

Yes, I mostly need to stop gambling, which isn't that hard for me. I gamble like once every 2 or 3 months, but when I do I always loose my ass and I loose big time. Putting me into a shame and regret spiral for weeks.

Sounds like stopping gambling 100% would be a good first step, especially if it isn't hard for you to stop.  Look at the areas where you see problems, and fix them.  Start there.  Good luck  :thumbup:

I stopped gambling a while ago. Figured after Vegas drop kicked me in the ass, I would have to stop. And since then I've realized I have all this money in my pocket that wouldn't be there if I was hitting the old BJ tables.

The money you win at casinos is very transient. You won it quickly, so you have equal desire to lose it quickly. Nonetheless the money you bring with you to the casino is not transient at all. You worked hard to get it, so don't get it mixed up...

What's my point? Take your life apart. Analyze it piece by piece. See what's bugging you the most. Then take action. For starters, stop gambling... go a month, two months, half a year in abstinence. Does it feel good? You'll be glad when you feel that emotional catharsis, the feeling: "man life is finally starting to treat me well..."

Best of luck to you sir!

If you can't stop gambling, try only gambling at a low limit game like Texas Holdem. Sit down with $100 and no more, dont bring along any credit cards or bank cards, it will last a long time if you play well. I can play in Vegas all day and break even, while getting free drinks and food, love that place... If you lose all your roll, then get up and quit for another 3 months and try again with another $100. Never play with money you could put to good use.

If you can't restrain yourself, if you lose and keep going back for more, you have to quit cold turkey.
