I would suggest you pay off your credit card bills

I did. Put the cards in my dresser and went cash/debit only. And forced myself to pay the cc bill immediately when I got paychecks

Real answer. Just stop using them. And when you're paying them off, pay as much as you can above the minimum! I'd suggest if you have multiple debts to do the Avalanche method. Pay off the one with the least balance and clear it for a good psychological effect. Then go to the next.
