Betting and gambling go hand in hand and sometimes it's very hard to tell if a man is just a player or a gambler. Gamblers usually think that they must be lucky, that their betting systems work and that they're going to win in the end.
In fact if you set-up a budget, and if you're not going to exceed it, you're very close to be just a player, not a gambler. Gamblers are known to lose more and more as time goes by. And if gamblers sometime win, the money is used for further betting.
For example, set-up a budget of $50 or $100/month and don't exceed it ever.
The most common mistake of all players is that they don't differentiate between winnings and budgets. Many players just put all won money into betting and this is how all money is lost. If you put all won money aside, you're still going to use only your monthly budget and won money can be used for different purposes. One can buy food, clothes, even a car or house if the amount is high enough, ... whatever.
If you win one day, you can lose just the next day. Luck is random and even if you're lucky for 30 days, nothing guarantees that you're going to be lucky on 31th day too! Bear this in mind when you win next $1 000 or $2 000. Everything is just a game and all is based on probability.
The main reason why people become gamblers is that they're convinced of the fact that next time they bet, they'll win. If a gambler lost $10 000, he or she wants all money back and tries to win it. Additionally, such a gambler wants not only to win all lost money, but also wants to win additional money to pay bills. However, even though a gambler wins money, it's usually not used for the purposes of paying bills, but instead it's put into games again.
Money is just money and if you cannot afford another ticket, don't worry. Let it be and focus on other activities that can actually generate money.
It's very common to see a gambler having all tickets together. If one bet fails, the wrong one must be thrown away, away from the remaining ones. Gamblers also have betting habits;
