Shopping addiction is a compulsive behavior recognized as a serious problem. Currently, with the possibility of shopping online, care must be redoubled. Buying online is simple, which makes it easier and easier for shopping addiction to arise.
The person accepts the purchase, more than being impulsive, seeks relief from their suffering and not just for pleasure. Compulsive shopping behavior is like a ritual with a basis similar to that of obsessive-compulsive disorders. This dependence leads to a loss of control over the person's behavior and life in general.
