Last night, I went out with some friends. The night started great, but it didn't end that way.

No, we didn't end up in a fight or get arrested, but decisions were made and it cost us --financially.

We decided to gamble using casino slot machines. Now, I am not saying it was smart, but this blog is for me to re-assure myself to never do this again. Long story short, we lost. A lot.

People often make unintellgent decisions when consuming alcholic beverages. I am glad that I didn't hurt anyone (we had a designated driver who was not drunk), but gambling is a disease. When I woke this morning, the pain of my decision making hurt my bank account.

Gambling. Most of us do it for the chance to strike it rich the easy way. In many stories from various religions, this a sin. To me, gambling cannot be a good thing. Don't get me wrong--I have won lots of money before--but now, the loss out weighs the gain. Basically, I shouldn't do it.

Today I can be happy because I finally WON--I will never play again.

Gambling can be a habit, if you want in the first hand , it'll bait you and never let you go, till you lose everything.

Gambling isn't a good thing. And neither betting, I think.

The loss outweighs the gain almost always...I know people that started playing just for fun, and now they have ruined their lives and their families!
