Re: 2 in 10 would give up alcohol for an 800 score

I usually buy my beer with a credit card. So I guess alcohol has helped me to get an 800 credit score.

I gave up alcohol & smoking years ago and still think about it everytime I walk by a bar or smell a cigarette burning. I would take an 800 score in a heartbeat over those 2.

 

I'm still working on my 800 scores. Smiley Happy



So close!

As someone who has worked for nearly 5 years to repair credit from what should have been a medical bankruptcy - and I didnt know better so I didnt, yeah I would give up drinking for an 800 credit score.   I rarely drink but I have a several a day soda habit I would throw in too - for an 800 credit score.   5 years in and I still am not to 700, getting close but  not there.  To be fair, there is little I wouldn't do for that score.
