Having a buying shopping disorder is definitely a ‘thing’ and might be familiar to a number of you. Another knock at the door and another parcel arrives! How many of us have got to know the Amazon delivery driver and the postman very well during lockdown!
Retail therapy is something we are all familiar with…the instant gratification that we get when we make a purchase, and now it’s easier than ever. The satisfaction of spending makes us feel good…or does it?
The internet has taken shopping addiction to a new level as we are now able to easily purchase items 24/7, in secret, at the click of a button. We also fall for the emails that say “have you forgotten something?” which involves us going back and being tempted again, so the cycle continues.
Buying Shopping Disorder can have a very detrimental effect on health, relationships, and finances. Like other addictions, Buying Shopping Disorder can lead to becoming intensely preoccupied with the need to buy and own certain items. This can then become a way of life for some people who are often dealing with or escaping from other painful issues that may be present in their lives. Shopping offers a distraction from everything else. The satisfaction receptors in the brain are activated by the action of online purchasing and for some, they just can’t stop.
