I personally believe going 'full time' on BF is not the best solution - better to have some form of income (preferably home work or part time) and supplement it with BF/betting/trading money.
I agree. Since having my first bet about two weeks before leaving University, I was always interested in sports gambling, mostly football. But after a while of getting tetchy when I lost, I decided to pack it in. I hadn't touched my Betfair account in perhaps three or four years, and basically went full-time overnight when I left my previous job. I made plenty of mistakes, and lost too much, but eventually I was turning things round. However, I think the biggest key was when I took on a new part-time job, and it took away so much stress of trading. I personally think the biggest asset to winning/losing/not losing is your psychology and so taking away that stress for me was a massive step.
