  1. Well hello Zolar, I can certainly identify with this post, a bank limit was for too long seen as a challenge to meet rather than to be avoided!

    With so much easy credit around its all too easy to forget the game you are being asked to play, you may not consider yourself a gambler but that is what they wish you to become.

    The gamble is of course that your current situation will remain the same or ideally improve such that this new credit remains manageable along side all of your existing gambles. Of course none of us knows what will truly happen in the next hour let alone in the next few months, so taking on credit or adding to our existing is the one gamble we really should avoid.

  2. Well, I don’t know if taking a credit is always a bad habit.
    Here in my country I run a small business. I started it with a small credit when my husband lost his job. In less than 1 year our bussines was enough to let us earn for a decent living.

    I guess, that depend a lot about how do you spent those money 🙂

  3. hi diana,,, maybe it could turn good if we use the credit to make profit.. but for spending is still bad…
