The easiest way to tell is this..
Look at the little stack of brightly coloured round discs in fromt of you, and if you can see them disappearing very very quickly before your very eyes, and no matter what you do you cannot stop it. You flop quad 8s and some git hits a straight flush. You hit the nuts flush and they hit a full house. You hit two pair, they hit three.. You hit A straight, they call your all in with 8 3 and hit a flush.. That kind of thing
Thats when you are on tilt. Its the point at which desperation sets in. No matter what you do it goes wrong and you end up losing.
The cure... kick merry crap out of the dog. Turn off the computer and take the wife upstairs for a night of hows your father...... Then come back the next day feeling bright and cheerful and lose at least feeling sexually fulfilled and in a better frame of mind to take the beating like a man...
