Close out the cards, if they're not already closed, and see if you can get the interest rate reduced to around 4%. If they won't negotiate, some people have used Credit Pros to assist, and I personally used Lexington Law years ago.

Sell things, anything that is not nailed down.  

Give up things,   Cell Phone,  Cable,  Internet,  basicly anything that is not needed to live.

Use all those moneys.

You might also consider finding some temporary work to boost income for a bit so you have more money to pay down debt.  Quit using the credit cards and learn to l'ive within your income..
