Hi,
Lately I'm obsessed with dreaming and getting lottery tickets
Do you actually know anyone that won the lottery.
I guess I just want to hear that I should stop dreaming about it and how it will solve all our debt problems TMI

Stop dreaming about it. You are more likely to fly to the moon first.

I always heard that it's a tax on those who never took statistics on school. Smile

Haha! I also used to imagine that I won the lottery and kept dreaming what I would do with it... Talking from experience: Dreaming about it doesn't make it for a reality LOL LOL LOL

Anything is possible, including winning a lottery. Even though very few people win, some do, they wouldn't if they didn't play. I know a Rabbi who occasionally buys lottery tickets.

R' Avigdor Miller said you should daven for many years and then buy one lottery ticket. If you don't win, go on with your life and forget about it.

I had a frum classmate whose large family won really big in the lottery.

They quickly went through all the money (house, cars, vacations, move, failed business, no employment) and father is back at his original job.

I know someone who won the lottery. I think he scaled back to part time and bought an apartment in Yerushalaim.
He lives comfortably but not extravagantly and is a Baal tzedaka.

Nothing to do with being frum. It happens to most lottery winners. Sadly.

I play occasionally, with no real hopes of winning. Its a nice daydream for a couple of days, for only a few dollars. In the unlikely event I would win, I'd put money in irrevocable trusts for each of the kids, and for us, leaving a bit to "play" with.

Yikes is OP,I feel like I'm getting addicted I keep on buying tickets daydreaming and planning what I'm going to do with the money ,pay our Debts,help some family members that need help, buy a new car we desperately need one and then when I don't win getting disappointed
Saying I won't buy again and then a few days later...
Help I know it's not logical and most people dont win the lottery but I can't help thinking that if I try why not maybe I'll win TMI TMI
