I dont think shopping is either boring or stupid. I get so excited when I get a good deal :tape: and it can be over anything :haha:...normally just clothing though. :haha:

I think that you can be "addicted" to just about anything, depending on how you define addiction. If you consider it merely a psychological depedency on something that has developed for some reason or another, then it's certainly possible to be addicted to shopping. If you believe that addiction must have a physical component, then things get a little more complicated and you might be better off jsut considering "shopping addiction" to be a maladaptive behaviour that is separate from the addictions.

Shopping to me is exciting in waves -- sometimes I get really excited by it, other times it's not exciting at all. As for "beating" your shopping addiction...well, try by "beating" something else! :tape: :tape:
