Oniomaniacs beware! 05. stycznia 2010 12:42:00 Komentarze (0)

As millions prepare to indulge themselves at the January sales, experts warn that shopping can be just as addictive as cigarettes or alcohol. 


Business psychologist Jacek Santorski says that we need to prepare ourselves in order not to fall prey to shopping mania and remember that specialists are working on us so that we spend, spend, spend, regardless of the consequences.


“When we are in this shopping trance, it sets off in our brain receptors which are responsible for pleasure. This causes us, in a sense, to be in a similar euphoria to love,” says Santorski.  


“Be like the cat that walks by itself,” is the somewhat cryptic advice to shoppers setting out for the January sales. 


Shop-aholism, or Oniomania, is just as hazardous as any other addiction say some experts, and just as dangerous to society as gambling, alcohol or drugs.
