I'm not sure if this has been covered or if I am posting in the right thread, but I am kinda curious on how much gambling the readers of ET do. After reading the thread below and gambling was addressed numberous times, it really makes me wonder. http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=71919 I consider myself a gambling addict with control. I have spent a lot of nights after work and upon hours on the computer playing party poker. I mean its pretty easy to get addicted, it takes pretty much three clicks and money is in your party poker account. To even add to my gambling addiction I take the Atlantic City bus sometimes to gamble 10-20 hours straight. What makes the Atlantic City trips disturbing I guess is that if I can't get friends to come long, I'll go by myself. I usually play craps or poker when I go, not really into boring slot machines and I am not a high roller to get into playing blackjack. Now what I mean by I have control over my addiction is, I usually deposit between 50-100 bucks in party poker and right when I am up a comfortable amount I cash out my deposit immediately. Of course there have been cases where I lose my deposit and over weeks and months those losses build up. When going to Atlantic city I usually only go on a long weekend, because the over night gambling sessions screw up my sleep schedule. The three day weekends are long enough to correct the problem for work the next week. I usually bring around 200-250 on these getaways. If I had to accurately estimate adding the party poker losses and Atlantic City losses over the 2+ yrs I am living in NYC, I'd say my overall gambling losses are between 2k-3k (Probably 2,500 to be honest). I am curious if the readers/traders on ET have this same gambling habit? and if so how long have you been gambling and how much loss would you estimate you have built up? If you want to add your gambling choices as well.... party poker, AC, home games, whatever.
