    Default GAMBLING

    Does anybody gamble here??...


    Last night (Fri. nite) I was at Pachenga Casino with a few friends and I lost a bunch of freaking money!! While gambling I didnt think much of it...But, when I was driving home..I had that "empty" feeling inside and felt like an idiot for letting myself lose that much.

    That feeling will pass and I probably will be back in a week or two. Im starting to think I have a gambling problem.


    I useta live in Boston and back then I useta go to Foxwood's Casino (in Conn.) all the time back a few years ago... To the point where the dealers and floor people would greet me by name!! I guess that's when I realize that I go to much?

    My husband and I will go to the casinos every once in a while. It's not all that much fun... at least I don't think it is anyway. We'll just play a few slots and watch other people play at the tables. That's about it. I don't think we spend more than $50-$100 though.

    Haha well I personally HATE Vegas. I gambled a bit...nothing bit AT ALL. I ended up taking home an extra $15. WOOOOHOOO!! I got one up on the man!

    But alas - Vegas did keep $700 because I broke down and bought my LV Speedy at the boutique. I couldn't help myself - some people leave Vegas $700 less without ANYTHING - at least I got something to show for it. Right?

    I enjoyed gambling - I'm not big into it and I get bored easily. But I've never lost money from it. I play pretty safe - I'm only willing to lose $50. So I stick to games like roulette and blackjack. They are fun, social games which is really the point of gambling for me. To make friends, get free drinks and have a rush of blood!!

    This saterday i went for the first time to a casino (b-day present of my mom )
    We went with 4 ppl and each had a budget of 50 euro´s..

    I lost everything gambling isn´t my thing.

    I thought slots where something for me but found out is´t blackjack i like the most... but still lost

    It was cool to experience it one time... but i´m not hooked on it

    The most i liked was when i walk of the stairs and a lot of guys where watching me!
    I´m deff not the pretty girl but it felt GOOD! I felt good... deff had to do with my clothes

    That night was a BLAST!

    I don't enjoy gambling that much. If I go to a casino its usually to take advantage of free drinks and $1 buffet specials. I did throw $5 in a slot machine at the Vegas airport and pushed a couple of buttons and left $30 richer... Not big $$$ but not too bad for a free trip to vegas where all I had was a credit card and $15 cash...

    If you think you have a problem call one of those confidential 1-800 numbers and see what they say... You don't want the problem to consume you!

    My husband is a H U G E gambeler. He has only played two times in the five years that we have been married. So when I say huge, I dont mean as in times, I mean as in money. He won so much the first time that we went to Vegas and they comp'ed our whole trip! We were VIP everything, had tickets to the O water show, didnt wait in line at any restaraunt and were treated like royalty.
    Because of that trip they (Bellagio) gave us a free trip to Biloxi, Ms where we stayed at the Beau Rivage and relaxed, on them!
    He hasnt gambeled since...he wins too much money and its kinda scary so it would be really bad to lose money like that...But it was fun while it lasted!

    Yea, I know!! My dad knew this guy that put a gun in his mouth and committed suicide in his car after he lost EVERYTHING (including his family) to gambling. It's really sad.
