I own a credit card (just one, not several) since perhaps 30+ years, I always paid the total amount due, on time. So for me a credit card is just a
mean of payment.
I basically only use it for putting gas in the car or some special purchase (buying furniture, paying the dentist, etc.).
I pay everything else (grocery, small purchase) cash.
If you own a car, it is hard, not to have one, since you might need a towing or get a repair in the middle of nowhere.
Now for reserving airline ticket, renting a car, giving a safety deposit in case you didn't return a rented tool, etc., I don't see the big fuss
I can understand that if someone cannot control itself, having one, this could be a problem, but the problem really is your "control part".
