I am lucky when it comes to gambling, but I never do it... I just guess and I don't do it.

I love it, I have a lot of fun going to the casino with my friends. sometimes I make bad decisions but I'm working on self control after I lose money and have an urge to go to the atm or making huge bets

I don't do any casino games or machines but I buy lotto tickets a few times a year. I always feel like a sucker when I do any gambling.

I hate to gamble, because I don't like to lose what I risk.

Gambling isn't exciting. I can think of better things to throw money away on.

There's always better things to do with money than that.

I despise gambling,one submits to a lurid creation that exploits a completely unsavory facet of the human character,rather than supporting the aspect of human character that is good and worthy of nourishment.

I played table games a few times recently, but I was betting with my intuition (not iNtuition), not really "gambling."

Both times it blended into gambling, because using intuition takes energy, and I had a bit of a fight with myself about it, so it really didn't stay fun for me.

I would rather get a dopamine rush with other, less risky methods.

What's the difference and how is that not gambling?

I'm not a fan of gambling. I find it pointless and stupid. There's other ways I could do with my money.

Intuition meaning not the alternate to Sensor in MBTI speak. Intuition as in "women's intuition" or as in someone who isn't cool with the word psychic for some reason, in part because that person does not see themselves as a psychic.

It isn't gambling because I could just tune in and let my intuition tell me where to bet (played roulette), and win many times in a row that way. I never used it to bet on a specific number, for some reason I just didn't want to do that. The first time I applied intuition to betting, I thought the dealer was going to think I was cheating - because I won like 20 times straight. Hard to do that in roulette.

It seems different from gambling to me because there's not much risk. Not if you know you can trust your gut answer for where to bet and then find out the gut was right. To me gambling is betting when you have absolutely no idea what the outcome will be. When I apply intuition to betting, it isn't really a game of chance anymore, because I feel where the round is going to go.

Unfortunately, like I said, it uses a good bit of energy to do this, and I'm not very good at noticing when it becomes regular betting. And even when I do notice, it's not always easy to just walk away after winning so many times in a row so easily, hehe. I would also have to travel like an hour to play at a casino, all of it together it's not very appealing now. Next time I have easier access to the games, I'll probably play more with intuition and work on stopping when it becomes regular betting. That way it'll stay fun :)

I enjoy card games. I don't like the games where you have no influence at all on the outcome. There's this korean card game called GoStop that I enjoy. I play that game to gamble with fake money sometimes :D never real money.
