Addicted to shopping
Lourdes Joza from Ecuador writes about shopaholics, people who are
15addicted to shopping.
Over the years, shopping has become a very common activity. Lots of
people
enjoy going to shopping centres or stores, but it's more than a common hobby for
20some of them. They have become shopaholics. They are people who simply enjoy
shopping and walking around spending money without being able to stop doing it.
Shopaholics, also called compulsive spenders, are people hooked on
shopping, They really like shopping and usually buy things that they don't need.
They don't have enough money, but they buy everything they want.
25
Some people go shopping when they are sad, worried, or lonely and they
want to feel better. They use this activity as a way to forget their problems.
Shopaholics say that they feel more important and better after they buy something.
We think that women enjoy shopping more than men,but that's not true. Men
really like shopping because they feel they have power and control. Also, men
30usually buy big items while women spend their money on clothes, cosmetics,
decorations for their houses, or things for the family.
Shopaholism can cause many problems. Some of them can be
psychological;
and in that case, people should get help. It can also cause financial problems.
35In conclusion, if you are a person who enjoys shopping, be careful.
My advices are: try to control yourself; next time you go shopping, stop a
second and think about it; examine your shopping habits.
