When to work for money your feel good...
Winning money "gambling" makes you feel dirty, so you "give it back" i.e. blow it all subconsciously before you withdraw anything. You don't even want it... hmmmmmm


I feel great when I'm making honest money than when I'm gambling I trance into poker world and withdraw myself from everything else. It sucks. But, ya. I think it is all about the urge. You get going and going to a really high bank roll and just like the adrenalin of playing way to high. You kind of forget the fact that it's real money and think it can always be more. Then even if you withdraw how long do you not play for? How much of that money do you put back in? It's a reciprocal cycle of mind games tapping into one of the most primitive humanistic urges. It goes back to our ancestors man. You turn into an untamed animal. Good or bad? It's good to be untamed, but only in certain ways. Gambling might not be one of them. It can turn real ugly if it goes unchecked for to long. What do you think? (obviously you should have balances in life, and not do more poker than is good for you. But, easier said than done when you enter Poker World). How many people think they play too much or kind of start withdrawing yourself from other normal activities when you start playing poker?

If you quote someone, its good habit to use the QUOTE-button, or to show otherwise who's words you are using, for example:

No, I don't have this problem, saying I dont feel guilty but I do understand where you are coming from as I am a religious person. The money does blow away but that has always been the case with me and 'dirty' money, though I think pokermoney is way cleaner and I do not feel guilty at all, everybody knows what theyre doing and if they dont they shouldnt be able to and their environment should give a crap, I cant give a crap about everyone, am only one person. So, whatever, I do cashout but I have close friends who deposit little, win big but never ever have cashed out, not once, I always thought thats because theyre greedy and incredibly stupid but maybe this could be a subconscious thing, everything is possible but I also know these guys and for now I just keep it with greedy and stupid, mainly stupid.

Also offcourse the losingstories are endless, and there are always words about big wins and when I check it is true, they did win that big and they actually did lose it all the same night/next morning (how about a good night sleep a*****e, its not that hard with 1500$ on your pokeraccount which still will be there when you wake up!), so it's also this thing, they like the attention or sympathy they think they are getting when telling these stories, also alot of 'gamblers' like it when they lose more than when they win, a losing streak has an end, a winning streak ends with a losing streak!

Also I use very strict bankrollmanagement, can't remember the last time I busted everything.. even if I have no money on my bankaccount or in my pockets I always have enough on my pokeraccount to take out everyday the money I need (it takes max. 2 hours before I have the money in my pockets) and also to play poker with, sometimes it gets tight but nomore than tight!

No.
-Working for money doesn't allways feel good.
-Winning, after you have put your own money at risk, does feel very good.
