On the first dated when you get your salary or on whatever date you get your salary. Immediately you set aside money from your bank account for minimum debt amount, also if you can save some more money then it will benefit you in coming months or in years.
More extra money you save can help you to recover from debt faster. But avoid using all of your savings in a single month; you should save money for any emergency happens.
Whenever your credit card bill comes, you should pay minimum balance amount and you can also give some extra money which helps you to low down the payments in coming times.
If you more than one credit card, then it is better to pay minimum debt on time and whenever you get some bonus or extra money then pay this money in your credit card debts. By this you can reduce the payment of the card.

Update the amount on monthly basis regularly because it will help you and motivate you to down your debts with each month passes.
