Some people don't have the financial discipline to use credit responsibly.

I have a friend who discovered that using a credit card allowed her to think "free money! All I ever wanted!" only to discover the cold, hard fact that she couldn't afford to pay her debts. She uses cash or checks.

Yes, sometimes it's frustrating, but she knows credit is a weakness for her, and she doesn't use it.
