If you like to have a cocktail from time to time, leave your cash at home if you set out to do your consuming in a casino. I am serious. Empty your evening bag, your wallet, and leave all money, plastic credit and chequebooks back at the hotel. Take whatever cash you expect to use on beverages, tips and few dollars you intend to squander and leave the remainder behind.

Contemptuous? Absolutely not. Just realistic. You might experience a profit after a boozy night out with your compatriots and be blessed enough to catch a 25 minute roll at a smokin craps game. Hang on to that story seeing that it’s as brief as it gets if you continually drink alcohol and gamble. The pair simply do not mix.

Keeping your cash back at the hotel is a bit drastic, but preventative measures for drastic actions is essential. If you wager to win, then don’t drink and play. If you like to be wasteful with your money without a concern, then drink all the no charge booze your stomach are able to handle, but do not pack charge cards and chequebooks to toss into the mix of going after losses after your drunk as a skunk brain loses everything!

Allow me to take this one step further. Don’t drink alcohol and then hop on the web to gamble in your best-liked casino either. I love to beverage from the comfort of my condominium, but since I am hooked up through Neteller, Firepay and keep charge cards in close proximity, I can not drink alcohol and wager.

How come? Although I don’t drink to excess, when I drink alcohol, it is clearly enough to befuddle my common sense. I wager, so I do not drink when betting. If you are a drinker, don’t bet when you do. Both create an awful, and crazy, drink.
