    No Gambling For Me.....

    I hate losing and never win anyway; I'd rather give my money away to someone who needs it than to some unscrupulous person who has too much already and isn't appreciative or ethical in its final use.

    Risk Aversion

    The "pain" of losing is always so much greater than the "joy" of winning. I just don't see the point. (And that's assuming that the odds were even. Of course in casinos they never are.)

    I used to regret this. After seeing how much it hurt the people in my life when it happened to them, I'm glad I never have. I never want to make someone feel that hurt.
