Have fun but dont burn yourself
Understanding the game
Don`t think of gambling as a way to make money
That belief feeds the problem
Never chase losses
Set a money limit
Decide how much money you can afford to lose before you play. When you have lost that amount of money, quit. If you win – enjoy, but remember it won’t happen most of the time.
Set a time limit
Gambling and alcohol are not a good combination
Gambling under the influence of alcohol is common, but it generally leads people to make bad decisions that they regret later.
People who gamble in a high-risk way lose the sense that it's only a game. They start to see gambling as a way to make money. Or they think they have special luck or abilities. Often when they lose, they bet more and more to try to win back what's been lost.People who gamble in a low-risk way naturally follow the principles of safer gambling. They see gambling as a form of entertainment. For them, a small gambling loss is the cost of a night's entertainment--just like the cost of a movie ticket or a restaurant bill.
