If you enjoy having a a beer from time to time, keep your money at home if you set out to do your consuming in a casino. I’m serious. Leave your pocketbook, your billfold, and keep all money, charge cards and chequebooks out of the casino. Grab only the cash you expect to use on refreshments, tips and few dollars you expect to throw away and leave the rest behind.

Pessimistic? Absolutely not. Just realistic. You may well have a profit after a boozy night out with your compatriots and be blessed sufficiently to hit a long toss at a smokin craps game. Hang on to that story considering that it is as brief as it gets if you consistently consume alcohol and bet. The pair simply do not go well together.

Leaving your moola at home is a little bit dramatic, but defensive measures for dramatic actions is necessary. If you gamble to succeed, then do not drink alcohol and play. If you can afford to burn your $$$$ without a worry, then consume all the complimentary booze you can handle, but do not take charge cards and checks to toss into the mix of going after squanderings after your dead drunk brain squanders everything!

Let me to carry this a single step more. Don’t drink alcohol and then hop online to gamble in your preferred casino either. I love to drink from the comfort of my condo, but considering that I’m linked up through Neteller, Firepay and have plastic credit in close proximity, I can not consume alcohol and wager.

Why? Although I do not drink to excess, once I drink alcohol, it’s absolutely enough to blur my common sense. I wager, so I don’t drink alcohol when gambling. If you are more of a drinker, do not wager when you do. Both create a decimating, and costly, drink.
