I work hard for my $$$$$$. I ain't gonna eff it off on a gamble ... at least no more than my stocks.
Don't like gambling for the same reasons.
Gambling feels worse than work.
All that constant studying of the players, counting, calculating the ever changing odds, and money management is mentally fatiguing; and even after all that processing, you still have the house against you to leave with more money than what you brought with you.
