Gambling has been with man since risk was around, on any outcome there is an element of risk. Only since the invention of possessions and things of value like money have these been wagered against the outcome. For the majority, gambling is fun, exciting, it was an edge on the events being risked.
For some it is a lucrative past time, fewer still it is their living! For some it is a living nightmare! A living hell where they lose, win and lose, losing more often than winning. This creates its nightmare by the person becoming addicted to the chase of the win and the ecstasy of to win itself. Conversely it can create a depressed feeling with losing often, hence needing to get the win to make them feel good. They know they are risking in most cases more than they can afford, they hide their gambling, steal, beg, borrow and do all it takes to get the money to chase that win.
Gambling is not supposed to be like that at all. It is supposed to be fun, exciting and like anything in life approached sensibly. As gambling can become a problem here are some pointers on how it can be done safely:-
1. Only ever bet from a betting bank you can afford to lose. Save this money up and make sure it is spare cash.
2. Always use a betting plan that does not use the majority of your betting bank. Only use small parts of your betting bank at a time. Use a good staking plan.
3. Stick to a system you have a dry run and tested out first before using it to place any money bets down. Ensure you understand any system before you use it.
4. Follow the system and the betting/staking plan to the letter, never deviate at all!
5. Go for a longer term profit over a fall season/year
Yes those five tips are not perfect but they will help make your gambling safer and more enjoyable and more profitable as well.
Gambling should definitely be about fun and excitement rather than the winning, therefore by making sure you can sustain the length of time you can gamble for, you will enjoy it more. A good betting system and staking plan will help you in this; certainly then you will find that gambling is a life changing past time.
