      How to stop myself from playing drunk?

      Just wasted 50$ again....

      Villain hit straignt on flop vs my AQ hand A 10 K flop

      Villain hit flop on turn vs my AK hand K flop where I check lol... turn gives him straight :)


      lock my pc up or something?


      Still somewhat drunk.. just realized what I did. Hate myself a lot for it :(

      Got somewhat the same issues here, lost $140 on NL20 yesterday, playing while tired, and tilt added to it as well. My stop-loss limit is officially in place starting this morning, that helps a ton against tilt. But not playing while intoxicated is something you really need to hammer in your head while sober. Poker+drugs is even worse, not sure what kind of person you are so I won't draw premature conclusions, but don't ever ever ever open any real money poker site when stoned/high/... Playing drunk is mainly a question of discipline: if you can't bring yourself to a point where you can control yourself and not do something you promised yourself not to, then there's nothing that will help you. Except maybe a built-in soberness test that shuts down your pc should you fail. But seriously, you can't just say "what the hell, I'll just do it" and then hate yourself for lack of willpower in the morning, that won't resolve anything. You have to grow some self-control, like buying a cream soufflé and just staring at it for half an hour without eating it (almost worked for me).

      aren't you supposed to be like, out when you're drunk? with friends and such?
      alternatively, is it really that hard not to turn on the pc when you're drunk?

      btw, sorry to say USB breathalyzers don't exist yet ;)

      +1
      except for 2 minor differences.. I play freerolls on platforms where I don't have a BR anymore and I play PL Omaha Hi-Lo cause it's more 'exhausting' and I can fall asleep faster (lowest limit of course)

      In order to capitalize on the situation, I recommend you STAY drunk ALL the time, and learn to play with in the state of alcoholic bliss. This way, after lots of practice, you can learn how to effectively play with drunk, thus improving your sober game :evil:
