I was on a pretty big heater (+373, +3781, +852) and this was recently followed by some big losses (-760, -1840). I'm particularly concerned because of how hard I chased in the two losses. I went beyond my max loss in the first one (-760) because I brought some extra cash for a friend and he wound up not needing it. I got knocked out of a tournament any played 1/2 afterwards and lost the extra $500 I brought. The -1840 was a home game we have a "line of credit" so to speak. During the heater my frame of mind was in a good place. The -760 was kind of an abberation, or so I told myself. But in the home game I went off the rails and bought in for way more than I had planned. I got it in good a few times and the cards didn't work out. But other times I was definitely playing to get it back. Worst of all, I knew I was not in a good place mentally going into the home game. I wasn't even planning on playing and was planning on taking a break from poker to regroup from the -760. Now I'm questioning everything I thought I knew about myself at the poker table.
My question is: How do I recover from this? How do I regroup now? I know this is a subjective question but I'm hoping to get some advice on how to prevent this from happening again. I plan to sit out for a while and do my best to learn from this.
