After receiving lots of good advice on here I decided against gambling on the tip, in fact I never even tried to register with a online bookmaker. I know if the tip won I’d just have another bet then another bet till I eventually lost, or if it lost I'd chase my losses, so thanks for all the advice it really helps coming on here. Well for the record the tip was nowhere near! So I’m still GF.
Well done and a good way of looking at things. You're absolutely right, any win only fuels you for more gambling and gives you a deluded belief that it's easy money and you can do it again. Youi dodged a bullet there. That tip may well have won and you might be kicking yourself but everyday we don't gamble, we win!
All the best
