I like the other thread where people post the positive things about not betting but it got me playing devils advocate and thinking about what I enjoyed about betting and seeing how I can replace it.

Things I enjoyed about betting.
1. The thrill of sitting on a bet and watching the game/sport.
2. Building a betting bank and thinking about how to increase it.
3. Being right!

Now I just need to get the same enjoyment from something else. Obviously number 2. Is easy – I can just watch my savings grow as anytime I feel like a bet I can put this money into my savings account (3 months notice needed to withdraw it, so it’s safe)

However, the other two points are tough to replicate.

I did think about investing in the stock market. But technically, that’s gambling, right?

Or maybe I need to stop thinking about trying to replace it?
