I just wanted to say.....

A BIG thank you to everyone who has ever given me advice on the forum! I am now officially debt free! After 18 months I did it! I gave up smoking and saved the money away, stopped getting the bus to work and walked and stopped spending money I didnt have on things I didnt need!! I had payday loans coming out of my **** this time last year and finally its all gone! I can answer my mobile without hearing "Its Wonga, Its P2P, Its Quickquid"!

The advice I got from the forums got me through it all. Knowing I wasnt alone in my problems and advice on how to sort it.

Thank you to everyone for their guidance!
