Default I got broke..

I already played well out of my bankroll, about 800 playing 2/4 NL. After playing four 100+9 WSOP qualifiers on UB I was down half of my money. Instead of being smart I went ahead and stayed at 2/4 took a horrendous beat and now I have 2.50 or so in my account.
I plan on depositing more money soon, but I think I am going to switch to Limit instead of NL for awhile since my Online play has become too overly aggressive as a function of my live play becoming more aggressive. In the past limit has helped me calm this down and blah blah.

Anyway, after that long introduction, I was curious if anyone can offer some snippets of advice for the switch.

Don't play outside your roll. Seriously. Just don't do it.

I have been down this road countless times.
The key is to not play outside your roll and unless extremely comfortable with the NL games I would stick to a Limit game you would be adequately rolled for.
Also, 2.50 goes along way if you know what your doing with it. For instance, I have turned 69c on Stars into a few hundred in just over a week and my friend is over a grand starting with a dollar flat i sent him. Just play within your limits and how this site describes you to play and you should be fine!

I know a few players personally that are incredible poker players, but have horrible tilt issues, play outside their bankroll etc. etc. Holds them back immensly.
