Really just a call out to anyone who has ever had credit card debt, and happy enough to share on here ... we have a substantial amount that has grown for various reasons
It would be good to hear from others that it is possible to pay them off! What worked for you to help battle it etc

See if you can get a personal loan. The interest rate would be a lot smaller and more manageable. And cut up the cards!

encourage me out of debt
Whilst we don't have any credit card debt, my advice to you would be to see if you can transfer your debt to a 0% credit card (some do an introductory offer) and then set up a direct debit to pay it off. And cut the thing up once it arrives!

I transferred to a interest free credit card (specifically for credit transfers) with a well known bank and managed to pay it off quick smart without half my payments getting chewed up in interest.
Watching the balance go down kept me motivated.

Years ago, before kids we racked up a credit card and GE card (those things are the devil). There was no secret tips for us. We reigned the spending right in and cut up the cards. We got everything direct debit like electricity etc. And we piled every cent we had left onto the cards. We are now in a good cycle where we pay for everything with cash, no credit.
Bottom line. Live within your means, cut every single non essential thing out of the budget and pay it off. Once you start, the interest drops, and you eat more and more into the principal.

I have a small credit card debt at the moment
I decided on a realistic timeframe to pay it off worked out my monthly payments then added a little more to it :-) plus at the end of the month pay what extra i have towards the debt.
I absolutely love spending money but seeing the debt go down is a pretty awesome feeling :-)
not being unrealistic and still allowing yourself some spending money (not planning on putting all your extra money on the debt helps
