It's fun to gamble, too fun, too much fun, way too much fun. I lost my food money today because I've won before. $400+ a couple times & $125 others. The 1st 400 came from a nickel machine which I put like $10 into. That's like magic! Turning $10 into $400+??? Many small wins that I used to be able to walk away with happened, but not anymore, All small wins must be reinvested in the machines to get more money. I'm too greedy. It never used to be that way..... nowadays it's common. Like today: Hit 4 of a kind twice, once in the morning, once in the evening. It was four 3's which pay a little more than a regular 4 of a kind so I should have a little money right now....... yet I stayed on the machine after the win both times, hoping for more. It took all the money back. It's depressing to lose what you had the chance to keep. It never used to be like this. I used to walk if I had won a couple dollars. Now I fear that this may be one of the signs of addiction.
