Thanks haulingthescoreup, it hasn't been easy.  I try not to think about what I could have done with all of the money that has been pissed away.
I just hope someone can benefit from my misfortune by not making the same mistakes I did.

You have the right attitude.  I am currently paying of what was nearly 29K in credit card debt and determined that in the last 14 months I have paid off over 30K, I have a 0% interest on purchases card that I continued to use when I didn't have the money, since all of my money was going towards CC debt.  This was all my fault, no one else is responsible, but the only time I get truly angry with myself is when I think about that that 30K could have been a nice down payment on a house.

Goals for 2009: 0 Credit Card Debt & 0% Util (achieved 2/6/09), Mortgage! (achieved 11/2/09), getting closer to 800 scores (I crossed this earlier this year, but I'm sure I'm not there anymore!)
