I am a gambler (and a successful one, I have made a consistent profit from gambling over a long period of time).
To be a good gambler... you need to consider both sides of the bet.
1. What will this bet cost me if I lose?
2. What will this bet earn me if I win?
So the question you raise is incomplete. I like sex. I like whiskey. I like gambling.
If I can believe in God, and still do the things that I want... then it is a good bet. If by believing in God I have to give up my love of a 15 year highland single malt Scotch enjoyed in the company of a beautiful woman who I will later ****, I am not so sure.
