Hey!! Welcome to openly admitting you have a seriosu problem that cannot be "quick fixed". Its not about age jerry 41, yeah you should have a car, should have money. But your a CG, just like me and I know where that took me.

Go to a meeting, get on a programme, dont and I say dont believe the next pay day will solve your dreams. The 2quid for a bus to a meeting will be far more rewarding than loosing your next pay check.

Just give up, admit you cannot win and live a day by day.

That way you WILL have a car, will have nice things.

Good Luck.
