Hope for Compulsive Spending


  An exciting and interesting study was conducted by the University of Minnesota regarding compulsive shopping. The research claims a pill which is used to help Alzheimer’s patients could support compulsive shoppers in abstaining from their addiction. Previous to the study, participants admitted to spending 38 hours a week and more than half of their household income on shopping. After the trial, compulsive thoughts and behaviors were decreased as well as their shopping habits. This study is promising for those who are suffering from OCD of any type, including checking, contamination, hoarding, and rumination. If you or someone you know is suffering from this addiction please consult help as soon as possible. To discover more information regarding this encouraging research, click the following link.
