    Good luck on your journey.
    Start with small steps. Analyse your spending over the past 2-3 months and come up with a SOA. Then see where you can cut down and create a realistic budget.
    Try and save an emergency fund and then overpay on debts where you can.

    No judgement here whatsoever.
    Welcome and good luck.
    If you've cleared debt before then you know how to do that, so sounds like you need to focus on what allows you to build it back up again.
    Have you come across YNAB? It's a money management technique which has really helped change my mindset (along with everyone on here)
