Of course i can, actually i think it hard to find a person who don't miss at least 1 day in a year and play every single day.

Easily. Today was the first time I played in almost 2 weeks.

I did study poker in between so poker was still there in a way.

Of course you can live without playing a day of poker, I would say more, it's good to rest at least a day a week or two.

I don't play for several days if I have a family or health problem, this really affects my performance in the game so I prefer not to play for these reasons.

I can but I don't want to at the moment. I have the discipline 💪 but honestly I'm up more than I've lost, so that's a good enough reason for me to keep on playing my friend. Good luck 🍀

Of course it is, and even more so when it is urgent to take a break because you are dead from playing poker every day, it is important to take a good rest.

Yes, ofcourse. Since I still have work, I plan to start a family, I have some work at home, affairs, friends. On the contrary, I try to allocate an hour in my life for poker.

Hi :)
Sometimes I take breaks, but not for more than a few weeks. Basically I play 3-4 days a week and 2-3 days I rest. But if I have a lot of work or household chores, I will certainly first of all solve these current issues and I will play poker only when I have free time.

It's not a problem for me. Meetings with family and friends, walks in the park, fishing, hiking in the forest - there are many interesting things that I like to do.

I like to play, but it doesn't occupy a place in my life that I can't take away, it's good to play, but I prefer to spend time with my family and friends, watch a movie. In my opinion, you have to control the game and not the opposite. If it is controlling you, try to replace that habit with a healthier one.

But what if I want to make a living from poker what should I do then?
If you want to make a living, DON'T STOP! Play and learn as much as you can. Hone in your skills. That's the only way to make a living playing. Don't be addicted to winning/losing or the thrill of it all, but addicted to figuring out a strategy to consistently be able to walk away positive $. Remove emotions and focus on strategy.

Great point!

I need to play less and study more but I find it hard to do as playing is fun and study is boring so what can you do

For me, poker is a moment of excitement and adrenaline. In turn, it's a challenge. It gives me hope that one day, I will be one of the lucky ones who win extraordinary awards. That is why, with my perseverance, I will achieve it.

It's very difficult. I take time, at least an hour, but every day

I've went months with out playing poker, My tips to you is to study most of the time and try to play only one tourney a day, with time you will be able to focus more on studying.
