If your life only revolves around poker, you could suffer an existential crisis if or when you leave it. Many professional players have discovered that they do not know what they want to do and that they do not even know if they would like a normal job.I've noticed that people with more energy when playing, also use that enthusiasm for the game to expand horizons. Using it as an excuse to travel is the most obvious example, but there are many other ways in which poker can help you learn something new.
but that works only if you a re a poker pro, because if u are a recreational player, you can do anything

re: Poker & poker is more than poker
In my opinion, all this is more suitable for professional poker players. For beginners and poker lovers, in this case - need financial resources.

Of course, this is more then just a game. For some people poker is the life, but i think the best decision is just to to play poker a few hours after the job, so you can take some fun, maybe win some money without any risks at all. You know, professional poker life is not so good as it can seems for someone. You need to play 24/7 and of course this is not so easy as it seems, because you will loose also and it will be hard to take patience.
So, my advice is to just play poker for fun. The professional way is really hard and impossible for most of the people.
