Sooooooooooooo true , so true Todd! I quit playing the pick 3 (I was addicted ) in October. I really had withdrawals lol. I had to prove to myself I could stop and I did not play all of November. I have played $5.00 worth this month. I now know that I don't HAVE to play every day and Every draw. I will play if I "see"something that might come. But I don't have to play. No one can win all the time and pick 3 can become a bad habit. Don't give up take a break !!!!!!!......................Joy
chevelle, I know how you feel. Maybe just take a break or just do a couple of quickpicks every now and then and then look at your numbers again, you might see the patterns more clearly. Best of luck to you in what ever you decide.
Keep in mind that you only need to win a major jackpot once! I don't play the Pick 3 or 4 games, little lotto, or even buy scratch cards. Yes, like you I consider those a waste of money. But, to win a major jackpot in the IL Pick 6 or the MegaMillion game I do have to buy a ticket to have that chance of winning. Currently, I throwing off $10 per week on those two games of which i can easily afford. I play to win the big prizes or even 2nd place in the MegaMillion game. When it comes to playing or not playing, my advice is never spend money you can't afford to lose no matter how small that amount may be.
Put your money in a jar each day, and see if by the end of the week see how much you have. I have been doing this I have more in the jar. I play my cash-5 mega million lotto south for the hole week and my one pick 3 this will keep you out of the store. Give it a try just post the number's and see how they fall but don't leave us good luck.
