to stop when you lose is harder than when you win ! 🤔

Recommended Posts

so ! recently i noticed that it's harder ( for me it's not possible ) do stop playing when you start to lose but you can stop any time you win ! every time  i start to lose, even low amounts, i get angry and i start throwing money, i lose control and i can focus on nothing, but to recover, in the other side, i find it a bit easier to stop playing and cash out when i win, even if i win low amounts i find no problem to cash out, i think it's in our nature, we really can't accept the defeat and we always want to be winners ! 

back to old days, exactly in summer 2015, i was playing dice, i made a deposit of 100k sats, and lost it in a blink of an eye, i got mad, i couldnt accept how i lost it without any profit even though i had 2btc left in my wallet, no matter how big or small you lose , defeat is still defeat and i will never accept it, i must be a winner, so i made another deposits to recover, and i lost the whole 2 btc in minutes ! then i knew that i did a big mistake by not stopping and keep playing ! i should've accept the defeat and let go of the balance i lost.

in general, we are greedy selfish creators, we always want to be leaders, we want to win in every race and we dont accept other result except being winners. accepting defeat is the half way of winning. what do you guys think ? which is harder ? to stop when you are losing ? or when you are winning ? ( your answer will also help me figure out what the real problem of mine is, so i can develop myself, and have a better control )

It's though in both situation but I think it's more though to stop when we are winning. Actually when we loss we continuously make depo until we loss all. So if we loss all that we can afford we have to stop there. But when we keep winning we become more greedy. So without quite we play continuously. In the end we stop by losing all.

It’s harder for me to stop when I lose. Even though I cannot call myself a risky player, sometimes there are situations when I still decide. And of course sometimes I lose. And if I lost a lot ...

And sometimes this happens by accident, by mistake. For example, why not make a couple of zeros? Oh, I can do it. Sometimes without noticing losing what I did not expect, I try to recoup and can lose even more ...

And why when this happens I do not win?

That's when I win - no problem. I always try to choose a goal for myself. Or for example, I make my favorite challenges here. When I caught what I wanted, I calmly stop.

there may be a feeling of wanting to continue playing even though I have lost, but I can't continue the game because I don't have balance, so I will stop playing. and I will play if I have balance. and I think it's more difficult to stop playing when I win and get a lot of profit, because I always want to get more and more

I would have to agree it is harder to stop when losing.  In the past, I had always had a tendency to try to chase losses to recover, but for me it generally does not end up well.  Also, greed can sometimes take over when winning and we have to try not to let that hinder our play as well...

When you lose, you what to recover and have a little profit, that is a normal response of human. It is their nature to keep on avenge their ego or sometimes they just cant accept that their efforts are not rewarded. Winning and losing are two inseparable things that we need to consider in life- there come along, hand in hand. One of the reasons why you don't stop when you lose is because you experienced winning. 

Here are some tips to control yourself:

 

1.TAKE A DEEP BREATH. Some times taking a deep breath will calm you. Think wisely if you continue, you might lose again.  Remind yourself that what happened has happened you, can't lose more. CHILL you'll win but not today.


2. LET GO!. I know its your hard earned money, but the moment you started gambling you must understand that you may lose.  Think about what you just experienced, and try to understand how you are currently responding to it. If you are angry, ask yourself why you are angry. If you are disappointed, ask yourself what you hoped to achieve. Before you accept or control your emotions, you must first understand them.

 

3. LEARN FROM WHAT HAPPENED.  Understand that you're not gonna win every single bet. Set goals, limit yourself and think positive :)

Strongly agree with you, I also find it very difficult to stop when I experience defeat. because they do not believe that they have suffered defeat so continue with the rest of the existing capital. but I also have difficulty controlling when I win, but at least I can make myself more quickly stop playing than when I lose.

I am sure most gambler never stop when they lost, specially when they still have to depo. When you win much you can stop and enjoy it. But like me I love to stop when I got much already. But when I lose and I still have some to depo so that I can recover. Then i keep on goin just to try my luck to recover.

Chasing losses is a common practice in gamblers and physical casinos have learned how to take advantage of it, meanwhile online ones can give you fairness and time. You can always take your time to think about the bets, analyzed them and start right where you left. One thing to be aware of, when you join the gambling world, is to keep your mind in peace when you lost big and never go full in after it because you might be ended up losing more. If you build a new strategy with low amounts you could eventually recover all the lost money without pushing yourself.

I would highly recommend you to apply @policewale advice. I sometimes keep them as rules when I'm gambling and it works just fine to your mind, and to your wallet 🤣.

Yes when I win I can't stop playing and the ending of that is bust I can't control my self playing everygames on stake
that's why I always throw money on nothing. and When I lose I'm very angry on my self why I didn't stop playing 
why I didn't withdraw it.
