really? I keep thinking the louder I yell, the better she will understand me, she just isnt listening.....
Its all making more sense now...... lol,
Seriously tho, thats actually a good analogy. I just stop when I am tilting.
The twelve steps to getting off tilt
Step one: Realize when you are on tilt (Kinda like the Alcoholics anonymous thing of realizing you actually have a problem is the most important first step, cause only then can you act on it)
Step two : Turn your PC OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Step 3: uhhhhh, anything but poker, really.....
Step 4: Drink, eat, go swimming, play with your kids, go to work, fix the car, watch a movie, post in CC, anything but poker, really....
Step 5: Repeat step 4
Step 6,7,8,9,10 : Repeat step 5 ( these steps can vary as far as time limit goes, keep repeating them if 10 is not enough)
Step 11 ; read a book or article on whatever poker you play
Step 12 : Play a game and be ready for step one at any time.....
