Treat the money you lose as the cost of entertainment and any winnings as a bonus
Plan ahead - Set a money limit and a time limit, and stick to them
Expect to lose - Odds are, you will
NEVER gamble on credit
Create balance in your life - don't let gambling interfere with work or your personal life
Avoid "chasing" lost money - it's unlikely you'll win it back and very possible you'll lose more
Don't use gambling to cope with physical or emotional pain - Seek professional help
