The Adrenaline Rush Of Winning And Losing
Did you know that adrenaline and gambling have a lot in common? In fact, the thrill of winning can give you a major adrenaline rush. Yet, many people do not realize that adrenaline also reacts to a body’s stress and when you gamble and begin losing (hey it happens), the adrenaline levels in your body still continues to affect you. Why? Adrenaline is secreted by glands in you body when you are experiencing both excitement and stress and therefore, when it comes to the thrill of winning or the stress of losing while you gamble, adrenaline is at play in your body. Although adrenaline is in your body at all times in small, incremented doses, the adrenal glands secrete more adrenaline when you experience excitement or stress. So how do you know you are experiencing an adrenaline rush? When your heart starts beating faster, your eyes begin to dilate, and you are immediately put into a “fight or flight” mode. If you are winning at the tables, then you experience a kind of euphoria that accompanies an adrenaline rush and well, if you are down on your luck and losing, adrenaline will make you either feel like fleeing the tables or pressing forward and playing more.
In terms of winning, the adrenal rush can feel great! Conversely, in terms of losing, the adrenaline rush can have either a positive or negative effect on you—depending upon how you respond. For instance, if you are on a losing streak and you listen to the adrenaline telling you, “Hey, it’s time to leave this stressful situation behind you,” then the effects of the adrenaline rush that you experience will be positive. On the other hand, if you don’t listen to your body’s natural reaction to your losing streak and you continue playing because you keep telling yourself, “just one more game and I can win this thing,” you could be in for a really uncomfortable experience. Ultimately, how you react to an adrenaline rush is totally up to you. It is advised that you play wisely at all times and don’t get in over your head.
Stick to a budget, not matter what kind of streak you are on—win or lose. In the end, the enjoyment you will receive in gambling will totally depend on how intuitive you are, how in tune you are with yourself and how you play the game.
