 Lost a lot yesterday.  I only a working man earning $ 450 a week.  Lost $ 2000 plus. I use 5dimes and other offshore account.  I want to gamble but dont want to go broke.  Would these offshore account freeze my account if I ask them?   Only for a few months until I got enough extra cash. I dont want to have urge to gamble and earn my loss back if these accounts open.  You understand what me say?
what advice you give?  
  sorry, poor english.

call and cancel your acct. obvious this is a problem when u post this first thing in the morning assuming u are in the states.

its best to stay away from all gambling associated sites even this one.

best of luck.

If you really really wanna bet.. just bet 10 dollers here and there do a 3 or 4 team parlay you never know u might hit!.. Play what u really like u might hit a lil 3 teamer or 4 and feel more confident on playin with your winnings!.. When your up its a boost! and at times u can double or triple ur money. Take whatever winnings u can even if its 50 bucks! font get all crazy on your bets!

just my two cents, solve the problem right away cause everyday your loss will hunt you, and that makes it harder to stop for few months. be smart next time and earn in a small play only. GL man.

Most of us have had the same problem one time or another.

A little background on what ive done. I have been out of college for 2 years now and have a great job and do very well for myself. For the period of about 3 weeks I lost every week and couldnt hit a bit to save my life, I faded myself, tailed other people and even flipped a damn coin. Even the best cappers will have bad runs, do u need to prepare yourself for this. With your situation your probally making around 22,000 with taxes and everything take out. So ur first question you neeeeeeeed to ask yourself is why am I gambling? For me I had never really asked myself that and relized it was for the rush and action. I was fireing on games 2 mintues before they started so I could get the rush of the game. I make more then you, but its the same principle, so I will use urs as an example. You know this but its good to hammer the point home that if u speny no money on anything else u will now work the next 45 for free. Which im sure u have bills and food to pay so it will take u longer to get back. I know u mention ur gonna quit until u get some more cash, which is a bad idea becausd the same thing is going to happen again. All u need to do is bet less. Instead of 50 a game bet 10. Now its not easy at first but trust me I did it and feel so muxh better. I bet 100 a game compared to 500 which was what I was doing before and have the same rush. I say ok if I win 5 units this month I can go for a nice dinner, and whatever else I want.

Long story short bet smaller units like 10 a game and most importantly try to get back the value of a dollar and not a number on the screen. Your not gonna go cold turkey hardley anyone does, so bet within your budget 10 and win ten games and go have a great night with ur boys at the bar instead of loseing alot and feeling sick.

if you could totally quit gambling that will be the best if not just play a few game a day and bet small. we aint get rich from gambling just for the rush and fun.

Underdogs are 434-416-6 ats in NBA this season and 130-126-11 ats in NFL last season. You won't go broke by betting underdogs but no cigar as well.
