Are You Addicted To Debt?

The more counseling I do for people who are debt laden and at least claim to be seeking a solution to their debt problems, the more convinced I become that the words “Debt” and “Addiction” go together. Consider my reasoning. Once a person becomes addicted to anything, whether it be drugs, alcohol, sex, money, yes, a we can become addicted to almost anything, no action to alleviate the pain of the addiction will truly occur, until the pain of the addiction becomes overwhelming, and the individual hits bottom.

Like all addictions, the debt addiction starts innocently enough. Perhaps to simply cover a monthly shortfall in revenue. Not unlike the taking of pain medication until the body heals, or, we can get to see the doctor. The short term fix does its job, but without an awareness of the potential negative effects on how easily it can turn into an addiction, we use it over and over, so easy to take out a credit card and sign ones name. Couple this with the fact that the banks and credit card companies unlike the helpful physician, who monitors our pain relief use, these overseers are their encouraging our continued use. Give us a ready supply and even providing gifts in the form of flight rewards and points for using more.

Without an essential grounding, or financial education we fall into the trap and find ourselves paying more and more for the desired drug, until we are almost in ruins. Once we are hooked the banks just increase the cost of the drug with higher and higher interest rates.

Once our credit and good name are damaged we start feeling the pain and start the process of exploring ways of getting relief. The commercials tell us, we should go to the dealers for help. The dealers being the card companies that put us in this situation. Lets see, someone wants you to believe that your drug dealer is ready and able to help you, break your addiction. The worse thing is, people have allowed themselves to become totally brainwashed by the marketing genius of the pushers, into believing they want to let you out of debt slavery.

The pushers tell you to stay away from anyone who really understands how all this works because they really want to hurt you. Only the non-profit credit counselors can really help. The tell you this because they, the pushers, have created the non profit industry and in fact control it! Granted there are bad players in every area of life, debt settlement companies being among them, but there are also awesome debt settlement companies and debt relief programs available that the banks do not want you to be aware of, so, they go to great lengths to try to discredit them.

If you are debt addicted and ready to stop the pain, do not let the pushers stop you. Take control of your own life. If you want free credit counseling advice in an unpressured honest manner where you can explore all your options, including, Debt Management, Debt Settlement, or even alternative debt relief information, then by all means contact us or call us at: 877-766-2465.
