Poker can consume you and take over your life if you let it. Before long, you can shut out everything else in your world and won't be living the healthiest lifestyle, so it's important to find the proper balance . . .
When I started looking at poker as a job or a chore, I began to lose the thrill of playing the game. And that's what it is. Ultimately, it's a game.
