Losing streak

Aug 24, 2012, 12:24 PM 2

After an OK start and maintaining and ELO of 1100, which I thought was decent for a beginner I've lost 5 in a row.  Each loss is to a lower and lower rated opponent.  Training til now has been focused on lots o tactics and making decent openings.  In all I feel I'm off to better openings than opponent.  Part of my problem is these better openings bolster me to make ill-advised attacks.  Some other losses are because the opponent makes some wonky move like bringing the Q out on move 2 and I'm not sure how to deal with it.
