How do I know if I'm a shopaholic, and what can I do to cure my obsession?
The signs and symptoms of compulsive spending are similar to other addictions. These are the symptoms of shopaholism: Shopping or spending money as a result of being disappointed or scared. Having arguments with others about your spending and spending because of emotional distress in your life.
To overcome this, implement the following: Pay for purchases by cash or cheque. Make shopping lists and stick to them. Destroy credit cards and take a walk or exercise when the urge to shop arises.
