hello...I'm Chris and I am fighting C.U.P.S!

Yes, I am not purchasing magic for a month *gasp* - that is my target...

Instead, I will try to use it on something useful ;)

I'll take a girl out for a meal on tuesday maybe...or put it towards my car in december... I dunno...

I'll go for the girl ;)

Love

Chris

I live in Lee right next to Blackheath.


The thought of going a month without purchasing something really does bring me out in hot sweats. I cant go three days without browsing a magic website. C.U.P.S truly has a grip on me

Yes, I admit everybody... I tried to skip the CUPS meeting today and stephenmagic stopped me as I tried to trade some of my hard earned cash with some card guards from ellusionist.com! I have been shamed :oops:!

Do what i do. I have a seperate bank account for effects. A percentage of my earnings go into that aacount. So i have a certain amount to spend every month. Works for me.

I do have cards. I have one i use for (magic) business use. be strong you can do this. If i see a good item i will always check reviews or ask on here. It helps.

Surely that is not the irresponsible kind of behaviour that we expect from a true C.U.P.S sufferer.

It is those damn credit cards that get me every time :twisted:! You don't even have to think and before you know it those deceitful fingers of yours are typing up your Mastercard details into a little white box.

I am weak :cry:! Pass me another cake!

(Passes cake) Is it possible to put a limit on your card. I am sure you can ask the card company if it is possible.

Hmm... I might have a look into that. As far as I knew the minimum I could get was $500 (AUS) and that is still a very dangerous amount :shock:!

Mmmm... nice cakes :D! Did greedoniz make these ones?
