The dictionary specifies addiction as a way "to devote or surrender oneself to something habitually or obsessively; behavior that impairs the performance of a vital function(s), a harmful development." Dependency causes you to lose your equilibrium and reason.
Below all addictions is a yearning for immediate gratification--to feel great, mighty, worthy of appreciation, and problem-free--and an insistence on discounting the long-range, self-destructive deductions of the behavior.
If you endure a spending addiction, one out-of-control buying spree is never adequate. Local malls and Net shopping sites have a bewitching attractive appeal for you. You gift the most pricey, plushest presents. Your buys reflect how aware you are about all the most voguish brands and designer tags.

Spending addiction induces “I’ve have to purchase something at once” behavior. Every "cha-ching!" of the register or charge card "Approved!" message makes you feel so great, you receive enough of a chemical charge to drown in. One buy is never adequate. You wish to feel that inebriating "high" over and over, and again--and keep those hen-pecking, disturbing feelings at some distance. And so you go out and purchase something. - 10 -
Knowledge Is Power
There are chemical couriers called neurotransmitters that convey communication from your brain to throughout your body. When you’
