I think it had to do with poor impulse control - putting it in ice physically breaks the current action/reminds the person "hey, the card is in here for a reason". A psychological quick fix instead of facing the problem. Back then, the card numbers weren't as accessible like they are today.
I did this to get out of debt after graduating from college.
