A shopping addiction is a very real problem, and shouldn’t be treated lightly. The problem is usually more deep-rooted and emotional that simply an obsession with shoes; those who are compulsive shoppers use shopping to deal with emotions they’d rather not deal with. There’s no shame in admitting that you have a problem, and the first step towards getting better would be to admit that you have a problem, and find a person or institution to support you. At this point you may be wailing that you can’t spend any money, but a good psychologist won’t be money wasted if it means eventual financial freedom. See therapy as an investment, rather than an expense.
