I am a recreational poker player at the moment, playing only when i have the available time as i work shift work on a 4 and 2 schedual switching from nights to days inbetween days off. I work my life away as anyone trying to get ahead in life would. However im noticing that no matter how long and hard I dream of becoming a regular at a casino or home games, i am never actually going to be in a position to do so until i move to a location which allows me to play everyday .. consistantly.
I live approx. 2 and a half hours away from the closest casino that has live dealers and poker tables, and due to my work load i cannot make time to drive down. I find myself in a constant loop of doubt as i can only realistically play online when i have the available time, but im constantly burning through $100 deposits 20180325_204038.jpg

If you search the forum, you'll find lots of excellent advice. From the top of my hat a summmary:
- get grip on BRM; bank roll management
- start with freerolls to build bankroll (if you are patient enough), or deposit
- play micro 1 table SNG 6-max & study until you cruch it
- scale up to 9 and multi table and stakes
- allow for a learning period (cost) in BRM every time you change game type
