Can I make a living playing poker?

It’s estimated that 80% (possibly even more) lose money playing the game. An additional 15% merely break even, and only 5% actually make money consistently. So while it’s quite possible that you can make it to that 5% group, you shouldn’t expect the road to profitability to be a simple one.

Casinos give poker players free food, refreshments, etc. Where does all the money come from if players are only making money off other players? Each time you put money into a pot, the casino makes money. There are two winners to every poker hand, the player who wins and the house. Overtime, the house's rake is what kills you.
