In my case, my family has told me that I play too long. I would like to know if the same thing or something similar happened to you, such as that you spend more time with them, that playing poker is bad, it does not suit you, etc.

Not in such direct form by family but some people told me that poker is same as gambling and so on. As with everything proof is in the pudding. If you show people that you in fact earn money or at least do not loose too much playing poker and if they see that you can maintain balance with other activities in your life they usually respect your choice even if they do not understand it.

If your family suggests that you spend more time playing than your family, I suggest you take it to heart and become more interested in your family. Family is the most important.
I treat poker as a hobby, so my priority is personal, such as family, work, etc. In my spare time I sit down to play.

Hello. The natural reaction of your environment to your passion for poker. This is especially felt in the family. If poker does not seriously harm the family budget, then everything is fine. And this activity can be regarded as your hobby, hobby and way of life. Everyone in life has something that brings him, if not pleasure, then some satisfaction from the process. So reassure your families, friends, if any of your family members do not like what you are doing, let them understand that this is not alcoholism and you soberly assess your life, your interests and your rights to freedom of choice and action. Health to you and your loved ones. Happiness to your home.

No, my dad also plays online poker and I have never been given that kind of comment. My family has a pretty positive attitude towards this hobby and supports me in everything.

Hi.
Sometimes my girlfriend complains that I pay little attention to her and spend too much time playing poker. But mostly I find a compromise that suits both of us.
Good luck.

Hello.
My family always comes first for me. And although I love poker, I only play when I have free time.

if poker brings money, then there should be no problems with the family

Yes, it already happened with me. Nowadays I play less than I used to, so, it’s not a big problem in my family. Also, I try to only play after dinner when I know that everyone is doing something else.

If poker is a hobby one or two nights a week is ok and the rest of your time should be put into your family. Playing for money should be at least a couple times a week, Poker and Family should be at an even balance or neither one will work out. And your Family should be your number one choice. Good luck out there and keep grinding.

My family approves of my hobby for poker, rejoices if I win, support if I lose. I have never heard poker reproached me that enough to play, go do something else. so my family is the best!)))

I don't report that I play poker. I'm just surfing the Internet. No one is outraged.

Well ... the best way that both the family and poker do not cause problems ... will be by establishing a balance in the distribution of time ... so that when you are with your family you are 100% and when you are playing poker you are also at 100%

Family is there to judge, they are doing the emotional bribe by asking you to spend less time in poker and more with them. Just do your thing and play poker. And when youre with them, make sure you follow Dailons tip and be 100% with them

I have no problem playing poker because I usually play in the evening and that doesn't affect my family time during the day.

It seems to me that if the family saw the result of your game in a positive monetary income, then such comments would not arise.

poker requires a lot of time.
in my opinion, you just need to get organized, online poker is 24 hours, so everything will be fine.

I played online poker for years and nobody ever knew about it because it was during the hours when I was awake and others were asleep. I just set aside time that did not interfere with normal social connections.

Of course they knew when I was at the casino or local tournaments. That was scheduled weeks in advance. All above board.

Poker brings me extra income, which I am happy to spend on my family's needs. Therefore, in fact, everyone is happy. :)

Hi friend.

They don't tell me, but I know they think about it, but hey, it's my distraction and I want to get better at this game.
