Adult ADD and Compulsive Shopping

Posted Nov 17 2008 11:51pm

Adults with ADD are more prone to addictive behavior. One addictive behavior that Adults with ADD need to be especially careful of is compulsive shopping. While Adults with ADD may make poor shopping and money management decisions due to their impulsive nature, compulsive shopping  reaches a deeper level. Here are some warning signals that you might have a compulsive shopping problem:

1. Buying items that you do not need or items that you have never used.

2. Hiding purchases from family and friends or lying about how much money you spent.

3. Borrowing or stealing money from others to shop.

4. Your purchases are causing issues with work or home life.

If any of these warning signs apply to you or you feel you might have an issue with compulsive shopping please go the the debtors anonymous web site below.
