Hey congratulations. I saw this board and thought i should at least send some words of encouragement. I'm only 19 and have over the past year or so, threw a lot of entire paychecks to the internet sportsbooks. I think it's typical for ANY gambler to think, at least at first, that they have some kind of angle that is going to make them a winner. I finally wiped out my entire account, and haven't placed a bet since about three weeks into the baseball season(and have gotten myself to stop wanting to bet). But i know how difficult it can be to stop( I can't imagine how hard it may be if you live close to casinos). Anyway, good luck.

-Something I found that helps is to spend all the time i used to go over sports betting techniques, and the money i bet on games, and study investments and put the money in something "safer".
