Gamble every day… OK, maybe not my best idea!

Last year was “Drink of the Day“… one drink (a different drink) every day for an entire year…not a problem.  So this year I though I’d gamble everyday for the entire year.  I had a plan, limit my daily best to the $1 to $20 range… stick to the limit and win or lose, walk away.  The goal was to track each bet and the win/loss outcome on a spreadsheet and at the end of the year see how things panned out.

For the first couple months or so my plan worked.  With small bets I wouldn’t win much but with small bets I couldn’t lose much either and after a month or so I was pretty much even… but betting small gets boring after a while.  You start to think “If I bet more I can win more and that’s more exciting!”  Well, long story short I found myself betting and losing more than I was comfortable with and after going down about $500 one night I thought maybe this in’t the best idea (I even stopped tracking my results on the spreadsheet ‘cuz I didn’t like the numbers I was seeing :) ) Going to Vegas for a vacation with a couple thousand bucks to play with is one thing but living in Las Vegas (like I do) and betting every day can get you in a hole real fast so I decided to fail this New Year’s resolution before it had a chance to get out of hand…

…next year, hmmmmmm…
