Maybe try some cash games where there's only a couple players from CC there? That's what I've done and found they're mostly kinda normal, almost human. At least so far
And another thing that's helped me a bit is to sometimes think in terms of protecting my hand. If I get AK or JJ I raise because I've got to protect my hand from someone who has limped or is thinking of limping with T8s. And when I continuation bet when I've missed the flop (another tough one), sometimes I tell myself act as if I have QQ or KK. Conversely if I have AA or KK sometimes I'll tell myself I have AK and bet accordingly.
I've got a long ways to go, but those things have helped me.
And to kenny, I usually take a break, or tighten up if it's a shorter term thing.
