i'm an addict

i wish i never told my friends i play poker.
they ask questions and in future i think i will just lie to them.
i recently told a friend i was $4k down at one point in a month to finish the month about $100 down. i explained that you get used to these sorts of swings (only 10 buyins, but i never go into too much detail cos they dont understand, or care, or more likely both).

well, i was in a pub, chatting to them, explaining very briefly that supernova and sne status get you bonuses which is why i play a certain amount each month.

i then get told i'm addicted. i was shocked. like, wat?! i just said i play to keep the status to get bonuses. i explained how i end up playing ridic amounts at the end of each month to get enough hands in, and take months off when i can etc. i could tell they didn't believe me.

now i have to wait for some feeble intervention to try to cure me of my problem.

my head is in my hands.

NEVER try to explain to a non-player that you play poker. It's like the first rule of Fight Club!

I've lost count of the times I've argued about it not really being gambling due to betting when you have the best of it etc but they simply don't understand!
