I had promised in my mind to give a certain amount of money to tzedakah while in an unpleasant situation. May I now use maaser money to pay this or no?


No, once you have pledged the money, you have an obligation to give it to charity. Maaser may not be used to pay for other charity obligations a person already has.



See here and here for sources.
