Biggest Addictions in World wide

3. COMPULSIVE SHOPPING


Shopping addiction isn’t simply buying things you need or searching out the best deal on some luxury item. It differs from other shopping habits in that those afflicted look at shopping as a way to escape other problems in their lives. For the compulsive shopper, there is a cycle of tension that builds as they consider an item and then a release when it is purchased. This is similar to what a compulsive gambler feels when they place a significant bet. There is a sense of involvement that transports them out of their day-to-day problems. And just as the thrill for the gambler rests on betting and not primarily on winning, the shopping addict is in it for the process more than the purchase itself.
