Won 650 at the bookies, still depressed Watch

    I seem to be ok at betting, I lose money, but I am usually always ahead.

    I have all this money - but I don't know what to do with it - lately my social life isn't great due to battling depression.

    Any idea what to do?

    Stop betting and either put the money in your bank or spend it on something worthwhile to cheer you up.

    I find that the more depressed I am, the more likely I am to win my bets.

    Maybe go on holiday to cheer yourself up, or do something else that you've always wanted to do but couldn't because of lack of funds.

    Reckon I can get to a 1000 tbh.

    I once before in a depressive episode, made about 1200.

    Then lost 500 on Juventus, the other team scored, last kick of the game.

    That was really terrible.

    Excellent!

    The way I see it - if the chances of you winning a bet are directly proportional to how depressed you feel, by making you feel like you're at rock bottom, you're guaranteed to win tonight! :yep:

    Good luck!

    Dammit.

    Well personally if I won that much money I'd just put it in the bank or I'd end up spending it on silly things.

    TBH it wasnt easy making that much money.

    I won about 38 bets. and lost about 25 bets.

    Element of skill involved.

    Gotta keep your nerve, when the going gets tough. Along with needing some luck on your side.

    I can imagine, I'm terrible at anything like that.

    Even more reason to save it up for something worth while

    Isnt for everyone TBH - got to have serious balls if you want to make money out of it.

    So many times, I lose 100 here , 100 there. But then I make it back up again.

    Still - no idea why its when I am depressed I tend to kill the bookies.
