Stop Drunk Online Shopping
Have you ever gotten drunk and gotten surprise packages a few days later? After much thinking, you realize you must've ordered those things online when you were wasted. Oops.

How do you know it's an addiction? You're really in trouble if you have difficulty being away from your computer. You get anxious if you can't spend time online. You're neglecting duties and relationships. You have a feeling of emptiness when not shopping, trying to fill the soul with stuff. Maybe you're even getting into financial morass because of the spending.

Intervention requires the least invasive, least traumatic approach for the addict. It's solution based. It comes from a place of love.
