Replying to My Theory Of Betting

No need to blabber. It's hard to deal with gambling addicts. It's easier to prevent people from becoming gambling addicts.
I have known of a man who, because of gambling, stole money from a relative of mine. The man said that it was for "other issues". Hmm...gamblers are good liars too, I suppose.

To stop betting, one must convince himself/herself that betting is not a good pursuit and that he/she cannot win the money back. They must avoid any type of betting and rely on friends to keep them honest. There are many support groups to help in this pursuit.
Over time, all honest betters lose. It is a statistical truth. If you play long enough, you will lose, that's how casinos make money.

Now about luck in wining. As all of us know people sometimes win in casino. This is like a advertisment. You hear that someone win at casino, you go and try to do it. You loose. But you also can win. If after winning you stop then you really won. If not, you are loose. And you will lose much more then won at first. Won and stop after that means really luck. (IMHO) Luck is not winning itself, luck is win and stop. And be at needed time and place.
This is luck in casino. In other situations luck means be at needed place and in time (I'm repeating, sorry). And may be sometimes be more experienced then others? Some times we can think of luck but really we simly more experienced.
And about bettings. If you bet and win for example 20 times. You think you are master of bettings, but it's not as you think =) Did you thought how much you lost? Try to count. Count not only this time, count all times you was in casino. Try to count truely, don't lye to self. Never forget that casino is very hard structure, people work and try to get more and more money.

I tried it once until I found the trick. You only stop when you lose. Which is another reason that the house always wins. Now I enjoy the cheap accomodations on my way to Los Angeles and I even enjoy the spectacle of Las Vegas, but I don't like feeling like a chump, so I don't gamble.
I don't get the "losing it makes you want to win it back" Money is money and your way to get it is your career choice. I suppose if you enjoy gambling you might make such a career choice.

Taking risks is part of human nature nothing can stop that. The trick is taking intelligent risks. Weak individuals find this diffecult to do, then end up calling gambling an "illness" to hide their own failings.
I partially agree with you. It is certainly a weakness on their part. However, you cannot just say, "go be strong!". It would require them to be strong to take your advice. So, the question then becomes how to 'cure' their weakness, since they can't do it totally alone. If they could they would be strong, and that would sort of defeat the whole thing.

canceling out all the odds and stuff in the betting industry, you might be only betting on something only on luck. but is luck true? or isit just probability again? so if your betting on luck, why are you betting again and again? maybe luck is just a gimmick for you to bet...
Everything is probability. Everything is psychology. That is why at casinos the sound of someone winning is really loud, while the sound of losing is silence. It makes it seem as if winning was constant when really the house is making a killing. The way to stop is to JUST STOP. Give up. There is no secret formula. If there was, someone would have found it years ago, and the rules changed to handle it. You may think you have found a secret, but you haven't. This is psychology again. The human mind strives to make connections between these things. It sees patterns where there are none sometimes. ESPECIALLY in random data, like games of chance.
Simple rule for betting: IF you keep playing, you lose. The house WILL always win.
Second rule: the only way to win at betting is to not play the house. Play other people and be much better than them. If you aren't much better than them, see the first rule. If you are only a little better the nature of probability and luck will eventually clean you out. Hell, even if you ARE much better than the others, this can still happen.
Third rule: NEVER BET MORE THAN YOU CAN LOSE. Actually never bet more than half that amount, cause you are probably lying to yourself. If you can't hold yourself to that, then you shouldn't play. Find a way to stay away from gambling houses.
