Why do I Shoplift?

Why do I shoplift?

This is the question I have been asking my self for the past 24 hours… the past 15 years. I mean that was when it first began really. But the thing is, I’m sober now and working a 12 step program… so why am I still shoplifting. How have I managed to justify this for the past 4 years of my sobriety? Seriously, what the eff is wrong with me? I ...

Did it after 3 years being clean

I shoplifted for the first time in about 3 years today, I started doing it when I was 17 and it gave me a real rush to take things from department stores but I stopped when I was 18 and I knew the consequences would be much more severe if I were ever caught. I don't think I was ever addicted to it because I pretty much stopped as soon as I turned 18 without ...

Got Caught Stealing- It's Time To Stop.

I have shoplifted 4 times in my life: a bracelet from a store at the beach, makeup from Fred Myers, gum at Target and a headband from Forever 21. The alarm was triggered at Fred Myers, and I was with my mom. I claimed that it had fallen into my bag. Today, I tried to steal gum from Target and my mom spotted it in my bag. Now, she knows what's up.

Has anyone else been contacted by a production company?

I've only been on this site for a few days (hi everyone) but I replied to one post and then had a private message from a woman from a production company asking me if I'd be willing to participate in a documentary about impulse control disorders.

I'm a teen, and I have a serious problem with stealing, and I always feel really bad after doing it. I thought that maybe if I had someone to talk to about it then maybe it would be easier to stop. *mod edit*

I want to stop

I have been doing it for a couple of years and haven't been caught yet and I know if I keep doing it I will someday. I feel so guilty and I don't want to do it anymore. I want to be an honest person and pay for items, but will I even be able to go into the stores I've taken from? I'm so afraid to go into the stores I have stolen from ...

Does the reason vary from person to person?

I wouldn't describe my problem as something related to poor impulse control. I can stop anytime I want to.It's just that I don't want to although I'm scared.The thought of stopping makes me feel bad and bunch of uncomfortable questions pop into my mind, like "Why should I pay for it if I can steal it?How come others can do it?Why am I such a coward?What will people who know about my stealing think when ...

Being arrested and going to jail

is truly the worst. I used to be a compulsive shoplifter until last year when I was caught and arrested two times in a week. The second time I was in jail for a day. It was one of the worst experiences of my life, literally like being in hell. I missed my court date for the second case and cops came to my college and coordinate with my professor to arrest me after class. ...
