      I'm done thinking I can become a winning player. I go on tilt and once I do I cant stop losing. The worst is even when you have the best hand when on tilt you still lose......it makes it insannnnely impossible to play.

      so ive come to the conclusion of this. I am done with poker. It has given me nothing but headaches and regret. It has caused my family life too much stress to begin with. I spend 8 hrs on the computer a day, and I always end up just sitting here and wasting my time. I need to find a hobby thats less competitive and less emotional. Any SERIOUS ideas? If you post something stupid its not helpful at all to me, thanks.

      Im just a former poker player at this point asking the community honestly to give me some ideas of things I could do to have fun without playing poker. Please dont let me down and reply with something like, "fish" or "shove ur hand up ur ass and then sniff"....

      there is just no forgiveness in this game, you cant control what happens beyond the actions of check bet or raise, and everything else is predetermined by the random shuffle. i cant handle this anymore.

      i understand why some people can do this game, but they are the ones who can handle a tilt without going broke....i cant..TTYL... I lose.

      Try to change the game you're playing. Something wth lower variance like fixed games, FL Hold'em or 5 card draw. And meanwhile work on your mental game (I can recommend you buying 'The mental game of poker' by Jared Tendler...

      Yeah, give it a shot once more ;) , and then if you really want to quit, try chess...

      well my friend it says it all in your sig.
      and your nick here tells me that you still can do it as i will and many others.
      all you have to do is try harder and stop when you are not into it.
      so take some time (a week or more) dont even think about poker
      and then have another go.
      i tried a couple of times myself, didnt make it, but still going to try cause i love the nature of the game.
      poker is a game of control and that control is in your hands and head.
      so GL in your life and we will make it someday.
      THINK POSITIVE WHATEVER YOU DO!

      cya wherever that may be

      fuck trying.

      trying is for people who are broke.


      if you want to be successful as much as you want to breathe, you WILL be successful.

      You probably haven't put as much effort in as you think you have.

      maybe you have, but did you structure it? did you make sure it was working? apparantly not. Putting the most effort in the world into something that doesn't work for you is a waste of time.

      aka, if its not working, do something about it.

      This is classified as a type of laziness imo.

      I'm sorry but your problem is your reaction to the game not the game itself. What makes you think you will react differently to a different game?

      Idk, try yahoo! games or king.com

      try forex. I've come across it not so long ago, and i'm moving away from poker to it. Been studing for few months now. Its hard, but its possible. Way more logic than poker. No donks or lucktards, only you and the market (best opponent there is). If you get reads on it, you will win a lot.

      edit: and it seems people are super trolish these days. No logical answers anymore.

      they would quickly run out of oxygen and the fire would turn out and it would not explode,
      btw the elephant would have a panic attack and it would be impossible for a human to put a head in it...

      I would suggest some sort of martial art like Tai Chi or Aikido, something a little 'smoother' than say Karate or Boxing ( no offence guys :) ). It's very good for physical as well as mental wellbeing and is relaxing as well as keeping you fit. Competition is only there if you want it to be.

      Just an idea.

      Best regards with whatever you do,

      Mal.
