I've been in a similar situation where at first I tried to explain this to someone and they couldn't understand that this isn't the exact same thing as gambling because you have an edge and exploit it. Now I'm sure some professional gamblers would say they have an edge and they exploit it... after that conversation ..multiple times. I politely told that person to go fck them selves. It boils down to I know the work I put in and Its hard!

Some people at first said I was gambling but after explaining it in at elementary level they understood and agreed it wasn't the same. I'd try explaining it a little better before you tell people off. It's your life do what makes you happy.
