    I do not think that credit cards cause depresson if you use them wisely. It is hard to live without credit cards nowadays, they can help you if you use them wisely or can ruine you as any other thing if you do not know how to deal with it.

    Hi Creditowner,
    I agree that Credit Cards don't cause depression, it is the ensuing debt that may lead one to feel depressed. Some people may not use them "wisely" as you say. Thanks for the visit and for taking the time to comment.
