I used to think so playfully. Every day I hear stories about people who destroy their lives and well-being for their families because they can not stop playing. Everything goes. One woman talks from her prison cell: she turned two robbery banks to pay for her addiction. She does not excuse herself. But she could not help herself. She would be arrested.
Its just for fun. Thats my right. I have every right to do what I want with my money. I did earn it after all. It is mine. Everyone is entitled to feel good every now and then. All these hours I work. I deserve something.
So while many people are unable to consider working on a game one has to do a series of creative projects that may never pay games over and over in ways that are busy losing the vast majority of people.
In the daily game called Ill parole play is the pleasure to win a part of so many other things. It is part of the building that has forgotten that we will pay for gambling. On our design we will find a market play like moving to another city where it is meant that getting better will work to lead to a better job.
In pure play all other things have been eliminated. The goal: the profit. The goal: the payment. In some forms of pure play you play some skills one learns to play bingo to know the computer games efforts and outs. You get fast and move automatically. In other forms of pure gocks you just say pull your arm off an unarmed bandit and they do not have to keep it so strong that people have resorted or so Ive heard of diapers so they do not have to go to the bathroom.
Ive felt like playing games and parolife games. Time: about ten years ago. Too much stress. One day I opened a computer game and played some games. The tension disappeared. I stopped playing the minesweeper for several days getting better and better. Wonderful and relaxing. At some point I could not get better at mineswever. From the point of winning or losing the loss became a matter of happiness. And yet I still wanted to play. Very much.
I did what was easiest for me to do: I asked my partner to take the game from my computer at that time. I did not have the knowledge to know how to remove it myself. I do not think I could have used the computer and did not play. The drawing felt irresistible. I felt deprived when the game was gone. I wanted it back. I did not ask for it again though. I could get so much power over the games moves.
The good one. This is when we take gambler in life gambler that comes from as much knowledge and experience as possible. Even then it is important that we take the risk as well as possible because in daily life like in a casino there is an opportunity to save money at home and so on. I took a bet fifteen years ago: I had a flight of work that was reliable but did not meet me. I finished my Ph.D. when the airline met hard times and offered a golden handshake to people who were willing to leave. I did not have fultime college or university education set up. Worse there was hardly any teaching of any kind available where I lived. I still took a gamble. After all I had an almost completed Ph.D. in hand and had made university education part-time for years.
It was not an immediate profit. Men I finally got college tuition and finally as college college education. And its not a direct fix as a casino winner. This means we will work to make the teaching successful. How do they solve the more difficult classes when you can etc. There are ongoing challenges.
I think of Crick and Watson who worked to calculate the DNA structure and only after 10 years came to fruition by a dream that there was a double helicopter. They played with 10 years of their lives.
I am thinking of Banting who thought about how diabetes can be controlled by insulin. So much time and effort done despite the lack of success of the others.
It can of course also provide some kind of satisfaction for people who lead small boring lives. Bingo halls attract thousands of people week after week.
The cruel. This is when the pure game requirement takes over someones life and often destroys everything else in that life. Couple life parenting other interests.
What should you do? One recognizes the intense power of the game. There is the jackpot like a carrot in a donkey. Not easy to resist.
Societies and countries that prohibit games as both Canada and the states used to recognize the destructive power of the paoff are central to pure gambling.
