How do I get my brain to react…


To sports betting, like it did Poker, online slots and fruit machines and that is to leave them well alone as no money in them?!!!

22 years of gambling and I’ve never been drawn to a casino, played poker for a month, didn’t do very well, quickly never played again yet win, lose (most likely!) or draw, my brain doesn’t see sport book bets in the same way. If anything the complete 180 of the other gambling related products? 

2022, I want to knock the weekly (often daily!) gambling on the head. 22 years stopping in 2022 - would be a great end goal. 

hope others who visit get to see the positives of this time of the year. I just need a new hobby, my addiction is gambling and food, I thank god it’s not alcohol or drugs!! Again my brain. never got excited or saw a purpose - just like smoking. 

merry Christmas.
