Default When To Give Up?

What is a good deadline to either make it(it = a decent living) or give up. i've been playing for 3 years now. and although i no longer lose money, i dont realy make much either. is there a general timeline for if you haven't yet, you probably never will? what are your thoughts on this? how long did it take you?

What stakes are you playing at, what's your bankroll, how much did you put in to begin with?

first year and a half - 1500 or so

last year and a half + 1500 or so

used be be a gambler when i started but i've been studying and working hard since day one. now i wont take any -ev casino bet period. ocasionaly i play powerball. it's very hard for me to walk away from something i've spent so much time/blood/sweat/tears for. i was very intelegent in school and math. usualy one of the top scores in my schools for the standerdized testing. what i want to know is how long should i keep trying before i give it up? i've learned so much i'm getting much better at roll management. right now my roll is $100. i've turned $6 to $1100 before, cashed $400 and lost most of it back with horendous br management.

You REALLY should give up. You'll be better off if you never play poker/gamble again.
