People who do this should change their self image into that of a dealer and deal with all your worries sequentially rather than try to deal with them all at once.

They know their intentions from the outset and are in control of their financial situation. To keep themselves ahead of the game they should remind themselves of big pots they have won.

Players who regularly bet on rubbish cards are loosing money at poker and are probably spending too much money elsewhere. They need to reign in both their poker and their general life style. They should imagine scenarios in which they have lost more than they can afford and consider the consequences. That way they can better learn to understand risk and thus improve their game.
