I do go to the casino 3-5 times a week and I only bring $200, buy in with initial $100 so I don't lose my entire bankroll in one session. I only like to play craps since it is a social game and offers a lot of action but you do need a reasonable amount of money for it. Anyway, we are starting a family soon and my husband is worried that my obsession with the game is going to impact this. I believe everything is under control but I am trying to see his side too. He wants to go to counselling but I just don't see the need to so I thought I'd reach out here and see what your thoughts are or if you have similar experiences to share.
You bring $200 every time you go to the casino? If you save that money you could put a down payment on a house in less than a year. Realize that you're losing more than you're winning, even though it feels good in the moment when you cash out from time to time. Find another hobby that's also social, and that won't cost you an arm and a leg.
