Compulsive Buying

Compulsive buying involves buying of more things than one can be afford, frequent buying of items that are not needed, or shopping for longer periods of time than intended. Compulsive buying is motivated by irresistible impulses and is characterized by spending that is expensive and inappropriate. The act often finally leads to marked distress in the individual and interferes with his/ her social or occupational functioning. Invariably, such behaviour also lead to financial problems. It has harmful consequences for the individual and tends to be chronic and stereotyped. This act in itself is actually pleasurable, until negative consequences develop.
