I've lost 7 grand all-time.. I've lost close to $400 in the past 2 weeks.. This is all mostly on poker & sports gambling.. I keep going back and saying to myself: "Oh I'm just making the wrong bets, on the wrong teams.." "I need to feel good about my bet before i make it.
It is very important to always control yourself and your emotions. Emotional people often lose because they do not know how to restrain themselves. This is very important if you want to win more than the loser. Think about it. Play with virtual money, or just drop it for a week, take a break from it.
