    Why do you think that there is better advice available? There is not. You need to get a grip on this.

    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    That's because the Newbies Sticky is the best and most comprehensive advice on private parking out there - Coupon Mad puts a lot of work into keeping it up to date, so people like you can quickly and easily get effective help. Same with the other posters who maintain other stickies on other subjects right across these boards.

    Stickies and the importance of reading them first was something you clearly confirmed you had read and understood as part of your signup!
