“I used them mindlessly, ignoring interest rates,” he says. “Eventually, I realized something was wrong. That’s when I began to change my habits and take steps to eliminate my debt.”

The recent economic downturn has left Americans across the country struggling with deep credit card debt. Now that conditions are slowly improving, a new book by a former debt sufferer offers a concrete plan to become credit card debt-free and financially stable.

In Master The Card: Say Goodbye to Credit Card Debt Forever!, life coach Joe Paretta encourages readers to discover why they abuse credit cards, how to stop and what to do once their debt is paid off. He equates credit card use with an addiction, and it’s an addiction he’s personally experienced.

“I used them mindlessly, ignoring interest rates,” he says. “Eventually, I realized something was wrong. That’s when I began to change my habits and take steps to eliminate my debt.”

Like any addiction, maintaining card “sobriety” can be difficult, and various chapters address different stages in what is a step-by-step process. “Give” and “What Do You Want To Do With Your Life?” inspire readers to look forward to being debt-free, while “And ‘Take?’” addresses the fragile mindset of someone coming out of a deep credit card debt. By following these steps, Paretta maintains that readers can find their way out and ultimately live more rewarding lives.

“This is financial advice with personality, and it is meant to be used as an ongoing resource,” he says. “It is not a once-and-done read.”
