Lost trying to help a family member in her addictions

This post is my attempt at finding at least something I could hold on to to try and help my aunt with whom something very wrong and addiction-like has obviosly been happening during the past months and/or years.

Shopping Addiction

One possible solution for spending addiction

This has worked for me and my boyfriend. I waited to post to see how well it would go.

Both of us traded cards, so each of us can see what the other bought on our bank statements. Neither is allowed to hold cash.

Thus far it's been amazingly successful for the both of us. I hope it helps folks here too.

I'm giving abstinence another try as gambling has made me miserable yet again.

I'm suffering from physical and mental ailments and sitting around gambling online whenever I can has not made things any better.

I've taken steps to remove the temptation to gamble online.

One day at a time.

Needing 2 or more of some things

Hello, I'm new to this forum and I appreciate the opportunity to share. I'm writing because I often have a strong desire to purchase two or more of the same item. Often times these items are very expensive and I don't understand why I want to have a second,third,fourth etc. As an example, several years ago I became very interested in old film cameras. There was one particular model that I became very fond of ...
