Most people find it difficult to stop betting after losing more and more money to betting companies. Though there’s no specific time indicated for one to stop betting, there is a point in time you reach and say, “enough is enough”.
I am one of the many gamblers who have lost a lot of money but I have never given up,what I have done is to control myself.I remember there is a time I place a bet with $200 ,I was sure of the outcome.I slept knowing that my account would be credited with $240 the following morning.
The following morning I woke up and upon looking at the phone, I never saw the obvious message that comes when one has won money. I thought my eyes had a problem, or maybe I was dreaming.I proceeded to the bathroom to clean my face so that I could come to terms.Few minutes later it downed on me that I had lost $200.
Though it was a painful experience, among a couple of other experiences, I have never given up. But I would like to enlighten you on few things about betting.
If your intention is to become rich from betting, I can assure you, you won’t take long before you quit. Betting should act as a way of passing time and not the sole means of becoming rich.
The appropriate time to bow out of the game is when you develop a serious condition like depression. Betting poses serious health risks, which include high blood pressure, heart attack and depression. If you notice that the game is taking toll on your health, please quit.
Another red signal is when more than half of your income is sunk into the game.If you realize your life is stagnant because of betting, please quit. But you should have an exit strategy, which include looking for an alternative game that doesn’t necessarily require money.
Sometimes you might find yourself spending most of your time in gambling places, forgetting about your work. If that’s the case, plan to quit before it’s too late.
