I've been buying 1 lottery ticket every drawing with the same numbers for the past 30 years. How do I stop myself? The problem is I am so afraid that one time I stop buying, my numbers will come up and I will never forgive myself. How do I get out of this conundrum?

Answer: 2
If it's ONE ticket per week, it really isn't costing you very much... I say keep playing. Even if you never win a major prize ( which is likely ), you won't be out a lot of money. But if you really want to stop, just quit. The trick is never check your regular numbers against any future draws.
