Shopping Addiction

Shopping addiction might not seem to be a serious addiction or for many an actual addiction, but for many people suffering from compulsive shopping, shopping addiction is real and very destructive.

The 6% of Americans suffering from shopping addiction are said to exhibit a sens of self medication through their uncontrollable buying. Some causes of shopping addiction are:

  • Need to escape
  • Depression elimination
  • Desire for acceptance
  • A need for control even if the control is lost through uncontrollable shopping

Shopping addiction can lead to massive loss of money and even to breakups of marriages and loss of friends, leading to social isolation and increased depression. The best form of shopping addiction treatment is therapy. Shopping addicts need to have their deeper issues handled by professional counselors as the shopping is noted only to be a symptoms of more serious psychological issues.
