Dr. Ramani's Signs of a Shopping Addiction























 

Level 1:

- Unpaid credit card bills.

- Accumulating things in your home.

Level 2:

- Shopping in secret to hide it from friends and family.

- Relationships start to suffer.

Level 3:

- Borrowing money or pawning/selling heirlooms or other keepsakes.

- Stealing.

- Filing for bankruptcy.

Reasons for developing a shopping addiction:

- Unfulfilled in a job or career;  a feeling that you are not doing what you see meant to do so you try to fulfill yourself by shopping for things.

- Making up for not having money or things growing up.

- Recreating memories or feelings of good times spent shopping with a loved one growing up.

You can watch more with Dr. Ramani on the Oxygen series, "My Shopping Addiction."
