Can You Walk Away When Your Bankroll’s Gone
Time and again it has been argued that there is nothing bad or even remotely negative about gambling. It’s the way that gamblers behave that gives gambling a bad rap.
Whether this could ever be proven true based on solid evidence is not anymore important to you. What is important though is the way you gamble. Never mind what other people say about gambling. What matters is how well you handle gambling, your games, and being in casinos.
If you are a responsible gambler, you will remember to keep in mind three things: 1) you’re not gambling to win but to have a good time; 2) play within your gambling budget or allotted bankroll; and 3) walk away when you’ve spent all of your bankroll.
If you strictly follow these three simple rules, you will never go awry when it comes to gambling. If you fail to follow just one single step, you’re not likely to get out of casinos in one piece – or the same person.
You have to remember that people have been known to develop gambling addiction or gambling problems and you are no exception. Rich, successful and even famous people have fallen victim to gambling addiction and have lost all of their wealth and fame because of it.
Who’s to say that you won’t fall into the same trap? That’s why it is very important that before you even decide what games to play and how much to allot per game; make the decision first that you will be a responsible individual when gambling.
If you have your own internet connection at home, then believe that you are an easy target for online gambling. After all, online gambling is so much easier and if you do become addicted to gambling, it will be easier for you as well to keep it from your family and loved ones because you can play when the entire world’s sleeping already.
Walking away when your bankroll’s down the drain already will take all of your discipline and yes, courage because you will be greatly tempted to win back your losses and you will continue chasing after them until you’ve become addicted to the excitement of the chase.
So if you think that you can’t promise to walk away from your games once your gambling budget is gone perhaps you’re not yet ready to gamble in the big leagues.
Remember that it is so much easier to resist temptation the first time around than to resist something you’ve already had a taste of.
