unsuccessful player (i hate poker)

Hi all
          Haven't written a blog for a couple of weeks now but this may well be my last blog because i have finally decided that i actually hate poker.The way it makes you feel when you suffer a bad beat.The way it makes you feel when after about 3 hours of play you finally hit those illusive aces only to have everyone fold around to you so all you win is the small blind.I could go on for hours about this.My main reason for this outburst is i have adjusted my game and over the last week found that i was actually winning S N G's as well as cash to the point where over a 10 day period i built my meague bankroll up from $15 to a respectable $73 like i say it took me 10 days to do this.But after a 1 hour period at the tables this evening i'm now back down to a pathetic $7.I'm so fed up with getting K K only to be seen by another player with A A i get A Q another player gets A K i get a king flush they get an ace flush and so it went on for the remainder of my playing time the 1 hand that stood out was when i hit a straight flush 4 of clubs through to 8 of clubs and that time everybody folded round to me even though i played it passive to get some action.How people supposedly make millions playing on the internet is a complete mystery to me because i no i'm a bad player but you need such a massive amount of luck whether your a good or bad player.I heard a while back about a challenge Daniel Neg under took to turn $10 into $100,000 on the internet but as great a player as he is i don't see how that can be possible because you can play 99 hands perfect and with luck on your side do great but all you need is to get the money in there with aces and the other guy flukes a flush on the river and the whole bank roll can be wiped out.So i will decide over the next week weather to carry on playing but at this present moment in time i dont think i'd care if i never saw another poker table again...................Why have i got this feeling that by this time tomorrow i'll be sitting at the computer waiting for the next $3.50 S N G to start...
