If/when you give up work you generally end up playing too much. Your mind finds it hard to fully switch off and be "normal" again. The fact you have 5 days off (from poker) is probably a good thing.
If you win a fairly big tourney for me the elation isnt really to do with the money it is more to do with, "great, I actually have an excuse not to play for a few weeks".
You probably feel you want to play more. I remember feeling the same before i ditched the desk job, but for the reasons stated above, dont feel like you're missing out, because simply you're not. You're probably a lot more rounded as a consequence. (It would probably take most poker players a good month or so to fully get their mind off poker...and that is never a good thing)
And, you might also win the Sunday Million ,
Good Luck to you
EDIT :- god I sound like some addiction therapist, lol
