I am going to attempt quit cold turkey from gambling.
Though I am not a big bettor, I do scratch off way too many $2.00 and $5.00 instant lottery tickets, make small sports bets, like travelling to Atlantic City, and even played a little online poker.
For me, luckily, it's not about the money but the TIME and the negative emotions associated with gambling. Mainly the TIME and thought wasted.
I wanted to compile a list of activites which can equal the pull of a slot machine handle.
My personal list:
- Metal Detecting
- Thrift store hunting for valuables.
If anyone can think of others to add to the list, please do so.
