I found that the best cure for tilt is experience and confidence in your game.

Last month I went through a stretch where I lost 13 buy-ins in a week but thanks to some encouragement from Cc'ers I stayed the course and have made a rebound. Now when my Aces get cracked or I lose KK to Ace Rag or set over set or villain rivers a Full House when I hold the nut flush I just shrug and move on. As long as you believe in Expected Value
and that the results of an indivisual hand don't matter but that making correct decisions does then tilt will melt away. But this does not happen over night, it takes ALOT of Poker to get to that point.
ALOT of Poker.
