Hi Jay the reason your brain tells you to gamble is because it knows you enjoy it ( before you lose) , it is not your brains fault. Teaching your brain not to tell you this is not easy , i have mentioned this recently. i.e. if your right handed your brain tells you to pick up a cup of tea with your right hand automatically, if you tell your brain to pick it up with your left hand over time it will do this automatically. In certain situations your brain says go gamble because it knows you feel better when winning or just escaping from the real world if only for a short time. So when your brain says go gamble you have to stop-think-and keep thinking it through (all the reasons why you shouldn’t) until the thought passes.
