00:00 More Tips to Prevent Compulsive Spending – Part 2
I’m continuing to give you more ideas to keep you from starting that compulsive spending cycle. We want to cut it off at the beginning – for a food addict, it’s the first bite, for an alcoholic, the first drink, for us, it’s the first purchase. We want stop whatever leads us to the cascade of destructive behavior that, in the end, triggers a compulsive spending binge.
These danger zones can include buying out of fear, panic, and guilt as well as desire. So this is where we can begin to change, by prevention. Remember, you won’t have a compulsive spending binge if you don’t make the first purchase.
