Can't quit the slots- Help please

So I will keep it short...

I'm a winning 20-40 limit poker player, but I can't stay away from the slot machines. Specifically the penny slots which I fire $100 bills into and bet max.

This weekend was typical...won $900 Friday playing poker. On the way out lost $200 playing slots. Saturday I lost $900 playing slots before I even got to the poker room. Then won $700 playing poker, lost $500 of that on the way to my car.

This is a typical weekend for me.

Please help...any tips?

You think so?

I have no problem NOT going to a casino and staying home.

My problem is I can't JUST go play poker.

I have a healthy bankroll and do not have any financial concerns. I never gamble money that I can't afford.

I mean if it can get you away from slots its got to be a good move, whether you can afford to lose the money or not.

Are there any card rooms that are not in a casino near you?

Funny you ask because I lived in Seattle for years and never had this problem.

Re: Can't quit the slots- Help please

I have the same problem. What helped me is whenever I want to play slots I rather open youtube or some live stream if it's available and watch someone else play. When I see their frustration and how long does it take for them to get the bonus, how quickly bankroll is disappearing, my mind stops craving, understands the variance and how -EV it is until I want to play again.

Play the online pokers, not the online slots.

Unless you are getting a blow job at the same time as playing slots, just don't play them.

Spend it on whores and coke.

Do you like girls and drugs more than sitting there pressing a button?

Is Video Poker good where you are? I'd say you can go to GA for your slot addiction while still playing poker, but GA is probalby retarded and won't see it that way. Idiots.

Re: Can't quit the slots- Help please

hey

Avid avid reader of forums

this is my first post ever so may as well post on this subject, slots are my biggest leak in gambling, to make it worse i have hit a slot for 55k and 28k before. but probably still down overall.

I play poker full time and travel around the country, my main thing to stay away from slots is to never go to the slot, if you can just b line is str8 to poker to your car to the room its the only way. no matter how many times i say to my self " ok just one 100" it turns into a night mare, but if i never trigger myself to start, i wont go near them. i know it sounds kind of stupid answer, but what i do now is when leaving a poker room i put my headphones on and sunglasses and just head str8 to the exit without even thinking slots

Thanks to those of you that took the time to give me good advice.

Obviously this isn't the best place with all the trolls that are in this forum, but I didn't really know which forum the question fit best in.

Cheers.
