Do Not Drink … Gamble!

If you enjoy a cocktail occasionally, leave your money at home if you plan to do your consuming in a casino. I am serious. Leave your purse, your billfold, and keep all money, credit cards and cheques out of the casino. Take whatever cash you expect to spend on alcohol, tipping and only the pocket change you expect to lose and keep the rest behind.

Cynical? Not really. Just realistic. You could have a success after a inebriated evening out with your compatriots and be blessed sufficiently to hit a 25 minute toss at a hot craps table. Hang on to that adventure considering that it is as short-lived as it gets if you consistently drink alcohol and gamble. The two just do not mix.

Keeping your cash back at the hotel is a bit drastic, but preventative actions for dramatic behavior is necessary. If you bet to succeed, then do not drink and play. If you are able to afford to burn your assets nary a concern, then drink all the free booze you can handle, but do not carry plastic credit and chequebooks to toss into the mix of going after squanderings after your befuddled self throws away every little thing!

Let me to take this a single step more. Don’t drink alcohol and then head on the net to gamble in your favorite online casino either. I enjoy a beer from the comfort of my home, however considering that I am hooked up through Neteller, Firepay and have credit cards in close proximity, I can not drink and bet.

What’s the reason? Even though I do not drink to excess, once I consume alcohol, it’s clearly sufficient to blur my common sense. I bet, so I don’t consume alcohol when wagering. If you are more of a drinker, do not gamble at the same time. The two mix up for a dangerous, and expensive, cocktail.
