Knowing when to take a break from gambling!

Recommended Posts

Knowing when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em is a matter of memorizing proper strategy, but knowing when to walk away is a different story altogether. Even the very best gamblers , those rare players who can consistently beat the casino at its own game  won’t wind up in the black if they cave to compulsive tendencies.

Just as gambling enthusiasts have a multitude of reasons to play their favorite casino games , entertainment, diversion, relaxation, and profit chief among them ,you’ll find plenty of reasons to take a step back from the tables. Obligations at work or at home, occasional lapses into problematic habits, or simply separating yourself from a rough losing streak ,there’s always a viable reason to take a break.

But that can be easier said than done.

what about you guys ? do you know when it's the right time to take a break ? or you keep playing until you get busted and then gambling forces you to take a break :D !? i myself am planning to take a long break in the coming days because i busted a lot :(

I take a break when I lose. This is to prevent myself from losing more. Usually it takes me 3 to 1 week to keep myself away from the site or other forms of gambling. So far doing t has positive result for me. I also take a break when I win. I know its lame but I believe that the dice will avenge for its lost. 

Taking a break means a lot to me. It improves my sense of judgement. If you think that you have to take break please do it :)

I want to know too when it is right time to take break. I always busted my coins but I still do deposit but no return in profit. Deposit and deposit until no coins to deposit. Gambling is so much addicted. When you win yesterday, you wish to win again today. Looking forward for this topic :)

I personally think that once you start to gamble in a daily basis in which you could not control yourself anymore, it would be very hard to actually not play or to take a break from it, we all know that gambling is a vice because it is very addicting.

A little too late for a break for me since they have won everything from me. But as for the Email encouraging people to take breaks and to self exclude is not exactly what is going to help some of the users. I was a little displeased.

They should let us deposit our money and put it into our own form of reload which will divide our funds by 7. Therefore saving us money and spreading the cost of our gambling habits. It won't stop us from depositing again but for users who can't deposit several times, this would be useful.

The best way for me to tell when I need to take a break is gauging how much mental energy I have in me. If I have energy, I can play better than without the energy. What I mean is that most of the times I have tilted was a result of me playing while fatigued/not taking it seriously. Taking dicing seriously is also as important as having enough energy I would argue.

I never knew when I had to take a break from gambling, even when I lost, I didn't want to take a break from gambling. I still want to continue playing and playing until I am absolutely sure that I have to take a break from gambling for a while

When I get certain amount of profit then I take break and stop for that time period.

It's important to take breaks in gambling otherwise there are more chances that money will be lost while betting continuesly.

So it's always good idea to take breaks after specific amount of time or specific amount of profit or loss.

I think when your losses start to amount, its a good time to take a break. Many try to continue playing and winning back their losses, but this is a surefire way of busting even more and getting into a deeper hole. Self control is key here, which is something a lot of gamblers don't have. Especially in the moment.

Definitely don't try to win back, just try to win!

When you start to try to win back that's where you'd almost always end up losing!

I buy some crypto, bust it and then have a week's break, works well so far!

I will rest when my balance has run out of funds, but I will not forget the withdrawal of the balance when I have fulfilled the minimum withdrawal so when my balance runs out at least I have made a withdrawal beforehand. because if we always forget the withdrawal, all the victories we have won will run out again

as i can see, many of you guys taking it easy , you are saying to "control yourself " well controlling yourself is one of the hardest mental things, you need a hard mental training to be able to control yourself, especially when it come to gambling and when you start to lose, you will keep playing until you recover or you get busted ! its in the human nature , we dont accept defeat , we always want to be winners the whole time !

Especially when you're up then you busted your playing balance, then you deposit again right after a good up and down. There is a tendency that you gonna rage bet in this other deposit, so yup. Take a break and just always remember to keep your cool.

Lol, my words, but not my actions. lol

For me eventhough i bust i love to really stay here, pd is my home dice site i feel family here than any other site

I only take a break for an hour then back again, i guess my way of gambling is still acceptable than any others who has a ludomania that 

really needs a rehab or break into a casino :)

We have the same feeling. Actually, when I lose, i tend to forget the word "calm" and wanted to get back my money. The eagerness to recover the losses is strong not knowing that the more we recover the more we tend to loss because our attitude of self control seems to be out in ourself that time.

Sometimes, when we need to take a break. That makes sense, I mean reflecting all the mistakes so we can start all over again and we can prevent to be greedy and out of control when we get back to gambling.

Break from gambling it's easy to say than done, I'm only taking break from gambling when I'm losing big fat loss on my bank account. As long as it not over my budget I will keep fighting and no regrets no surrender. Took several breaks last year after losing quite few thousand dollars on slot machine.  Trying to completely quitting from gambling is very hard to do.  Your mind keep telling you to visit those gambling site just to check out and bamm you has been years here.
