What do Shopping Addiction Behaviors Look Like?
Are you worried that you, or someone you care for is a shopping addict? You may often think or hear phrases such as:
- I’ve had a bad day
- I deserve this
- I’m going to treat myself
- I just need a break
- I’m only going to look, not shop
Look and listen for the phrases above if you’re not sure whether someone is a compulsive shopper. Rather than using these words occasionally, they may be heard or thought of almost daily, without a shopping addict realizing that this is a common thought pattern.
In addition, please refer to a longer list of shopping addiction behaviors below. An overshopper doesn’t have to exhibit all of these on the list – often just a few are strong enough clues to suggest seeking further help.
